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 donít tell you is that they wouldnít 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 breweryís door. Itís 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 theyíre going to use for next yearís brews. Thatís 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.
