The Fresh Hop Ale Festival in Yakima, Washington, was just named one of the Top 10 Best American Beer Fests by Thrillist.com, putting this awesome local festival among some pretty amazing company - including The Great American Beer Fest {Denver, Colorado} and the World Beer Festival {several locations.}

What is the Fresh Hop Ale Festival?

The Yakima Valley is one of the largest producers of hops in the US, and they celebrate that crop in a big way each year during the Fresh Hop Ale Festival! You'll find tons of local beers on tap, all from hops that have been picked in the last 24 hours. And your attendance at the Fresh Hop Ale Fest helps support the community too - it's a major source of funding for the Allied Arts of Yakima Valley.

When is the Fresh Hop Ale Festival?

The website doesn't have an official date for the 2014 Festival, but on Facebook they've mentioned that it will be the first Saturday in October. You can watch their website for a more detailed date as the event gets closer, and you can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.

Be sure to watch for updates coming up soon, and mark your calendar for this fantastic event. Last year's festival had over 5,000 attendees, and it's sure to be even bigger this year with the new publicity of being named one of the top 10 best fests in America!
