We all know water is vital to brewing, but what about hops?! We’re proud to have more than one hop-growing partner, making sure this ingredient is sustainable.
Yakima Chief Hops is a 100% grower-owned network of family hop farms. Since 1869, they’ve been known for quality hops with an ever-growing vision towards sustainability. Situated in “Hop Country, USA,” or the Yakima Valley as you may know it, YCH is uniquely positioned to establish strong relationships between the growers who supply their super-premium hops and their innovative brewing customers who make the most of their products in their beer. YCH’s mission is to connect family hop farms with the world’s finest brewers, providing the highest quality hop products and uncompromising service for the ultimate benefit of customers, employees, and growers. YCH understands that access to clean water is undoubtedly important to produce healthy hops and refreshing beer, which is why they are a strong supporter of Oregon Wild’s work. There is an intrinsic relationship between healthy waterways and healthy hops; therefore, YCH’s growers strive to conserve the use of this natural resource for their growing requirements.
Yakima Chief Hops and grower/supplier Coleman Agriculture donated hops to this year’s Earth Day Collaboration brews.
“Our team is focused on continually aligning our values with those of our brewing partners. We believe that the creation of great craft brews starts in the field and is fostered through the union of our seasoned hop team, passionate brewers, brilliant scientists & researchers, along with our hop suppliers. As modern farmers, we’re committed to protecting the environment with sustainably driven practices. We strive to farm with an innovative lens for a healthier ecosystem while still honoring our heritage and traditional farming practices.”
