Submerged in the heart of hop country, Hop and Brew School is an annual event offering craft brewers the opportunity to personally experience the thrill of hop harvest at Hopunion. This exciting two-day event includes 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. Each Hop and Brew School class includes a ranch tour, where you can see the hop fields and witness hop picking, drying and baling, as well as a guided tour of Hopunion, where you will observe the receiving and warehousing of the hops.
