Seattle Fresh Hops Festival
October 7th & 8th, 2016
Hale’s Palladium
4301 Leary Way NW
Friday, October 7
6-9 pm
Saturday, October 8
1-4 pm & 6-9 pm

Three sessions to choose from! 20 breweries will sample just released fresh hops brews. Food and sliders will be available from Hale’s.

The Yakima Valley of Washington State is one of the most important hop growing regions in the world. Because of the boom in the beer industry, especially craft brewing in the U.S., demand for hops is at an all-time high.  And our own Yakima Valley contains approximately 75% of the total U.S. hop acreage! Approximately 2/3’s of the hops produced in the Yakima Valley are exported to countries all over the globe. Depending on the variety of hops, growers begin to harvest late August thru September.

Once a year brewmasters descend on Yakima’s Hop Country to hand pick their favorite varieties of hops, all with varying degrees of bitterness and aromatics. And they can’t wait to brew a batch or too with what they’ve chosen! Join in the fun and experience the wide range of fresh hop style beers and see what the excitement is all about!

This special seasonal event benefits City Fruit, who harvests unused fruit from urban households to help provide food for local food banks and shelters.
