HAND-CRAFTED STORIES FROM THE YAKIMA VALLEY

Al and Marcy

Al and Marcy are life-long residents of the Yakima Valley, and you can usually find them hanging out at one of our local breweries after their weekly soccer game. Between balancing work, school and family, they still manage to find the time to get out and explore the Yakima Valley’s craft beer scene.

THIS IS WHERE YOUR BEER COMES FROM

Yakima Valley Hop Growing Areas

There are a lot of other places you can visit that like to say they are big craft beer destinations. They all have great beers and cool breweries, but what those other destinations don’t tell you is that they wouldn’t be able to brew their beers without the Yakima Valley.

The right combination of soil, climate and water access have made this valley one of the most important hop growing regions in the world. Our growers proudly produce over 75% of the United States hop crop, which means they are single-handedly responsible for keeping the craft beer industry thriving.

This is one of the few places in the world where you can sip an IPA that was brewed with the hops that are growing right outside the brewery’s door. It’s where you can plop down on a bar stool and drink a beer with some of the biggest brewers from around the world, in town to hand-select the hops they’re going to use for next year’s brews. That’s why the World Food Travel Association named the Yakima Valley as the "Best Beer Experience" for 2017.

So when you come to the Yakima Valley you really do come to the source of the craft beer industry.
