Yakima Chief Hops Partners With Hop Culture For Beers With(out) Beards 2019 • Hop Culture

“Beers With(out) Beards is a terrific example of how this industry is continuing to grow in a diverse way—with more and more female brewers and brewery owners stepping up to the plate to create amazing beer,” Alex Rumbolz, Communications and Outreach Manager at YCH said. “Yakima Chief Hops is proud to support and attend the event while engaging and educating attendees on how hops contribute to the flavor, aroma, and quality of their favorite beers.”

Festivals are hard. If you need any proof, look at Fyre Fest. Woodstock 50. Even at a smaller scale, there are a thousand little details to nail, from check-in to distribution to consumer experience. A year ago, Hop Culture launched the first Beers With(out) Beards Festival to celebrate women in the...

We are launching something special today: The Hop Culture Beer Trading Club! Secure your spot here (https://store.hopculture.com/products/the-hop-culture-beer-trading-club) and read on below to check out all the info!

In the winter of 2018, we launched our first Beer Trade Secret Santa, and the response was overwhelming. 500 people signed up to send and receive beer from strangers across the Continental US. Unfortunately, we weren't equipped for such a fantastic response, and there were no repercussions for those who signed up, got a box, and then chose not to send one in return.

However, based on the original response, we know that people are interested in connecting through trades, so we're bringing back the concept as a members-only Trading Club.

Club memberships cost $25 for three months or $50 for six months. On the 1st of every month, you'll receive an assignment via email. Within two weeks of the assignment email, you'll be expected to ship a box of 4 to 6 canned local craft beers or 2 x 750ml bottles to your assignment, and you should expect to receive something in return. Ideally, these would be things you could only find in a local taproom, and not on the shelf at a grocery store or gas station. Additionally, if you're sending IPAs, they should have been canned within two weeks of shipping.

The beauty of a paid club is that we'll now have the funds to create boxes for anyone who gets stiffed -- if you don't get a package, Hop Culture will send you one, and the person who was supposed to send one will be removed from the club. No refunds!

Also, for those joining the six-month club, you'll receive a Hop Culture box with a mystery glass.

We only have 100 spots open for the first six months of the Hop Culture Trading Club (50 spots for the three-month group and 50 spots for the six-month group) and we're limiting spots to those living in the continental US.

The goal of this project is to create an active community of beer traders, and this is the best way we know how. Send what you want to receive, share with friends, and drink in good health! For questions, please contact [email protected].

The Best Bars in America to Find a Beer Cocktail with Jameson Caskmates • Hop Culture

"The boilermaker says to the world, 'I’ve earned this.' It’s both an indulgence and an act of rebellion: You won’t settle for your favorite pilsner or whiskey neat; you deserve both."

Presented by Jameson Irish Whiskey

The boilermaker, a.k.a. a shot and a beer, is the perfect combo. We asked bartenders from around the country for their best boilermaker recommendations.
