FAQ

Have a question about harvest? We have the answers and action you're looking for.

What’s harvest all about?

Once a year we host breweries from across the globe for hop selection in Yakima, Wash. This experience gives brewers the chance to go behind the hops––to walk our facilities, sample our hops, and even grab a beer with the team that makes it all happen. This year, things are a little different. Since everyone won’t be able to come to us, we’re bringing the harvest experience to them through a virtual harvest.


What’s a virtual harvest?

This year’s harvest has gone digital. We’re bringing the sights and sounds of harvest right to your living room. And, if you’re lucky, maybe even the tastes, smells, and touch too. Each week, we’re releasing virtual experiences that immerse your senses in the harvest–making you feel a little closer to our Yakima farms.
