YCH Hop and Brew School
« on: February 19, 2016, 09:24:24 PM »
Jeff Rankert (hopfundmalz) and I have sung the praises of the YCH Hop and Brew School.  It's truly a great experience...seminars in the morning, farm and processing tours in the afternoon, meeting the hop farmers and getting to ask them questions.  But for some reason, it seems like they don't get the word out about registration so some people miss it.  I just checked and hedre's the deal...Registration for Hop & Brew School is always the 1st Monday in June.  This year, that’s the 6th at 8:00 am PST.  IIRC, it's $150 and that includes food and beer...LOTS of beer!  The School for homebrewers is 9/1-2.  If you're able to make it, you won't regret it!

Sounds like an awesome adventure. Maybe someday, the Mrs does want to see the PNW, may to have to work it into a trip as well sooner than I thought
edit: just rechecked OP, and see its right at the beginning of school year. 5.5 years from now, no more kids in school. Maybe then

There are 2 places downtown that give discounts...the Hilton Garden Inn (the nice one!) and the Red Lion (not bad).

We probably won't go this year, but it was worth it. I am considering it for 2017. $200/person, my review is in the link.

I agree - Hop and brew school is a great time and well worth the price.
Just be prepared to sweat your butt off in the 100F heat out in the hop fields.
