In an extra special element, you will get to help select the hops that are brought over to Europe.

What our participants say

It was such a privilege to be invited onto the BarthHaas X Yakima Hop Harvest Tour. Being able to see the hops I've been brewing with for years being picked, processed and packaged was a great learning experience and really showed the care and respect with which the hops are treated in order to ensure they arrive with us as fresh as possible. As well as being educational, the trip was a lot of fun and lasting friendships were both made and cemented. – Andy Parker
