Like all special things must, the hop harvest is coming to an end in America. We were out in Oregon to celebrate the season in early September, and Founders Brewing Co. was similarly over in Washington State working and enjoying the harvest just a few weeks ago. A contingent, including Founders Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki, were specifically out in Yakima Valley, meeting with hop farmers to check out this year’s harvest and select the hops Founders will be brewing with in the coming year. To bring you an inside look at the hop harvest process, Kosmicki logged cool recaps each day — one of which we reproduced on this site. The crew also created this video, which recaps their time roamin’ around Yakima Valley during Hop Harvest Week 2016. It all comes together with the sweet sounds of Jesse Ray and the Carolina Catfish in the background.
