Veterans Hop Blend

About Veterans Blend

Each year, Yakima Chief Hops (YCH), a global hop supplier for the brewing community, collaborates with military Veteran brewers across the country to select a new hop blend recipe for their annual Veterans Blend. This hop blend supports and celebrates US military Veterans while collaborating with brewers to create something bigger than beer.
