Yakima Valley is home to the largest variety of produce in the Pacific Northwest including 78 percent of the hops grown in the entire nation. With fields, farms, and orchards at every turn, it’s easy to eat local in this abundant sun-kissed land. It’s also inspirational. It seems that with each passing month, more artisans are unveiling unique beverages inspired by local ingredients. Yakima Valley is known, not only for its 80-plus wineries, but it is fast becoming the craft beverage center of the Pacific Northwest.
