The Fresh Hop Group produces the annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival in the Yakima valley each fall after the Hop Harvest. Each November, after the work of producing the festival settles down, a call for funding is issued to local Arts and Science organizations to fund specific projects.
With the exception of a small number of funds kept in reserve to assist in launching the following year's festival, all of the festival proceeds are granted to community organizations and projects.
The Fresh Hop Ale Festival is a non-profit organization whose goal is to present one of the country's top 10 beer festivals, celebrate the Yakima Valley's hops, and support Yakima county based arts and science organizations.
