Yakima rocked festivals all summer long…so why stop now? The 10th Annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival is another great way to kick-off the fall season – and it’s this Saturday!
At 5pm, the Millennium Arts Plaza will open its gates to a brew-filled festival of fun, with 29 Washington state breweries, wine bars, food stands, a band stand and plenty of party-goers. There will also be demonstration tents where you can compare craft brews, sample wines and even puff a cigar. The Fresh Hop Ale Festival has become known as one of the Ten Best Fall Beer Festivals in America.
Tickets are $30, and can be purchased in advance online here or at local businesses around the valley. Tickets will also be available at the gate for $35. Proceeds from the event benefit Allied Arts of the Yakima Valley.
