About Hop & Brew School
Submerged in the heart of hop country, Hop & Brew School is an annual event offering brewers and beer lovers the opportunity to personally experience the thrill of hop harvest at YCH HOPS. This annual event is a direct reflection of our mission—to connect our family farms with the world’s finest brewers—as brewers and growers gather to celebrate the harvest season.
The event is separated into two sessions, each two days long. All attendees will experience presentations provided by award-winning brewers from across the globe speaking on hop usage, recipe formulation and brewing methods. Local hop farmers are also in attendance to address the numerous growing aspects of hops—from yields and aroma characteristics to new, up and coming proprietary varieties. Presentation topics vary from year-to-year.
Each Hop & Brew School class also includes a ranch tour of the hop fields where you can witness hop picking, drying and baling, as well as a guided tour of YCH HOPS, where you will observe the receiving and warehousing of the hops. Yakima Chief – Hopunion also hosts a welcome reception the night before each session, both of which are open to all attendees.
HOP & BREW SCHOOL 2018 WILL INCLUDE A COMMERCIAL BREWER SESSION AND A HOMEBREWER SESSION.
Commercial Brewers Session: August 28-29, 2018
Homebrewer Session: August 30-31, 2018
