The Fresh Hop Ale Festival showcases beers produced with fresh, Yakima Valley hops, the world’s largest hop-growing region (78%). To qualify for the festival and be considered a “fresh hop ale” the beers must be produced with Yakima Valley hops that have moved from vine to vat in 24 hours.

All proceeds go towards supporting Allied Arts of Yakima Valley, a non-profit organization that has been promoting and coordinating arts events in the Valley since 1962. Allied Arts focuses on developing artistic and academic skills in youth, community enhancement, and economic development. We work hard to keep the costs of our programs low, if not free, in order to allow access from all socio-economic levels.
