Important notes for previous crop year hops:
- The majority of lots from 2013 or prior have been sampled using current production standards and have been analyzed by our lab and sensory team to ensure quantitative and qualitative characteristics are intact.
- Some previous year packaging is "hard packed" in tightly-vacuumed, mylar packaging. Stability of these packages is comparable to current "soft pack" technology.
- All product will be shipped as is and may be branded as YCH HOPS, Yakima Chief, Inc. or Hopunion LLC.
- Spot hops are available for purchase by commercially licensed brewers only
- Overdue storage, finance or product fees must be cleared prior to a spot sale.
- All inventory (contracted hops) from previous crop years must be cleared or being actively shipped/restructured.
- Requested variety/varieties may not be on a prior year hop contract.
