Every Fall, This Beer-Loving City In Washington Holds The Best Fresh Hop Ale Festival In America

Fall is such a fantastic time to visit the Yakima Valley. When the scorching summer heat turns to crisp, still-sunny days and the leaves begin to turn, Central Washington goes from beautiful to all-out stunning. And if you’re a beer drinker, you already know that mid-September marks the beginning of the most wonderful time of the (beer lovers’) year: fresh hop season.

Every October, Yakima holds the annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival, an entire weekend dedicated to raising money for charity, community fun, games, live music, and amazing beer. If you have yet to experience it, make this the year you go.
