Like it says on the can, while each brew we create is in partnership with our awesome hop providers, this new beer is particularly special, because we got to work with a friend who’s now part of the Yakima Chief Hops family!

The YCH crew came around briefly this past spring to visit us, but this is the very first time that we’ve had the chance to collaborate with one of our hop providers directly. We chatted with Production Planning & Specialty Brewing Manager Brian Hink, Brewer Mike McGrath, and Culinary Ops & Cellarperson JP Thomas about how the collaboration went and what they think of this new hop.
