Submerged in the heart of hop country, Hop & Brew School is an annual event offering brewers the opportunity to personally experience the thrill of hop harvest at YCH HOPS. The event is separated into two sessions, each two days long. All attendees will experience presentations provided by award-winning brewers from across the United States speaking on hop usage, recipe formulation and brewing methods. Local hop farmers are also in attendance to address the numerous growing aspects of hops—from yields and aroma characteristics to new, up and coming proprietary varieties. Presentation topics vary from year-to-year. Each Hop & Brew School class also includes a ranch tour of the hop fields where you can witness hop picking, drying and baling, as well as a guided tour of YCH HOPS, where you will observe the receiving and warehousing of the hops.
Hop & Brew School 2016 will be held September 1-2, 2016. For more information or to register, visit https://ychhops.com/connect/events/home-brewing/hop-and-brew-school
