When the 15th Annual Hop & Brew School® returns this summer to Yakima, Washington, this will be the first time that the annual hop educational forum will be for both professional brewers and homebrewers. The 2019 Hop & Brew School® that’s hosted by Yakima Chief Hops will take place over Labor Day Weekend from August 30th – September 2nd.
Attendees of Hop & Brew School® will partake in a four-day event that includes technical seminars on product usage, recipe formulation, brewing practices and more. Hop & Brew School® also includes tours of the farms and Yakima Chief Hops facilities, as well as a chance to meet the growers and learn about what it takes to produce premium hops.
