Yakima is home to the signature, can’t miss, Fresh Hop Ale Festival the first weekend in October. But, you’ll find craft beer, food and music festivals and events throughout the Yakima Valley all year. Celebrate summer sipping at the Sunnyside Summer Ale Fest, Raise a glass or two for a good cause at Ales for ALS and enjoy craft brews with delicious competitive barbecue at Bottles, Brews & Barbecue. What goes together better than craft beer and tacos or burgers? Savor the perfect pairings at Yakima Taco Fest and the competitive Northwest Burger Jam. Share great craft beer, delicious foods and great music at Roots & Vines and Yakima’s Downtown Summer Nights.
There’s more to hop country than festivals! Yakima Valley breweries keep full calendars of special events for craft beer lovers. Single Hill Brewing Company has a fantastic taproom and patio for hanging out with friends, but they’re also a great live music venue with an outstanding lineup all year! Bale Breaker Brewing Co. and Varietal Beer Co. both host bike races or runs under Yakima’s sunny skies, ending with cold brews, of course! Find live music, local food vendors and bingo, trivia, movie and game nights and more at local breweries throughout the Valley.
Check back often as we update brewery events throughout the year!
