Decades of Collaboration
For more than 30 years, we at Yakima Chief Hops have made it our mission to connect the multigenerational family hop farms of the Pacific Northwest with the finest brewers across the globe. We believe the relationships between hop growers and brewers are as unique and sacred as the beers they brew.
Inspired by this connection, and the incredible process that it takes to make beer from the ground up, we have created the Farm to Pint Project. With this, we offer brewers the opportunity to connect directly with one of our hop growers as they work together as a team to create their own special collaboration brews.
Starting in 2021, we will feature six different Farm to Pint collaborations, brewed every other month. The breweries are hand selected by YCH and each one is partnered with a different hop farm from our grower network. The growers and YCH Sensory Team will decide which hop varieties and field lots will be used, while the brewery determines what they will brew. The single farm lots provided will be offered exclusively to the participating brewery, making each collaboration brew a truly one-of-a-kind Farm to Pint beer, showcasing the very best of the 2020 harvest and beyond.
As a hop supplier, we are excited to facilitate this new experience for both our brewers and our growers, where they have an opportunity to personally share their vision on a great beer. We invite brewers and beer drinkers alike to experience these beers throughout the year in celebration of the farm to pint connection.
