Take A Trip Through The Yakima Valley Hop Fields

Hop farmHop heads in Seattle or Western Washington, take note!

Schooner Exact Brewing is planning a field trip to the Yakima Valley to not only witness the harvest, but to also participate in the harvest. They’ll transport you and your friends from Seattle to the Virgil Gamache Hop Farm, the Toppenish area hop farm famous for creating the Amarillo hop.

After an exclusive tour, you’ll sit down to a gourmet picnic prepared on-site by their Chef.

Of course, there will be plenty of beer available throughout the day to quench your thirst.
