Washington-based Yakima Chief Hops has launched a special project, Farm to Pint, for 2021, which will feature new beers throughout the year, each brewed in collaboration with a different family hop farm and local European breweries.

For more than 30 years, Yakima Chief Hops has made it its mission to connect the multi-generational family hop farms of the Pacific North West with the finest brewers across the globe. Inspired by this connection, and the incredible process that it takes to make beer from the ground up, YCH has created the Farm to Pint Project.

“Farm to Pint is a literal translation of our mission statement at YCH and a chance to help build lasting relationships right across the supply chain,” said Luke Kulchstein, European marketing lead at YCH.

“Working in partnership with our grower network and some of the finest brewers in Europe, we are hoping to bring a little slice of the Pacific North West to beer drinkers everywhere. Something that’s particularly important to us after a year like we have seen in 2020.”

Starting in 2021, YCH will feature six different Farm to Pint collaborations, brewed every other month. The breweries are selected by YCH and each one is partnered with a different hop farm from its grower network.

The growers and YCH sensory team will decide which hop varieties and field lots will be used, while the brewery determines what they will brew. The single farm lots provided will be offered exclusively to the participating brewery, making each collaboration brew a one-of-a-kind Farm to Pint beer.

The project is one of the first beer collaborations that offers hop growers the opportunity to personally share their vision on a great beer and select the exact hops to be used. Believing that the relationships between hop growers and brewers are as sacred as the beers they brew, YCH aims to celebrate this connection with the release of Farm to Pint beers throughout the year.

Yakima Chief Hops invites brewers and beer drinkers alike to experience these unique beers that showcase some of the best hops of the 2020 harvest. The first beer series release is expected to be at the end of February, featuring Carpenter Ranches and Pressure Drop Brewing, in London.
