For beer lovers, touring a hop farm during harvest is something very special. It is a rare peek behind the curtain, where you’ll witness the hop-harvesting and hop-processing operation with your own two eyes. It’s a chance to see what is inside the hoppy version of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Problem is, the opportunity is rare. It’s a busy time of year for the Oompa Loompas on the hop farm, so unless you work for a brewery or have some other legitimate reason to be there, it’s an invitation you are not likely to receive. Consider this a golden ticket. Bale Breaker Brewing is offering an opportunity for your hoppiest dreams to come true.
Bale Breaker is currently running a contest on Instagram and the winner gets an amazing hop country experience. Basically, you need to post a photo, video, or well-composed story that proclaims your love for Bale Breaker’s beer. Obviously, this requires that you follow them on Instagram, but why wouldn’t you? (Follow them on Facebook and on the web too.)
Wonderous Things Await You
The winner of this contest will get a trip to Hop Country USA (Yakima area) for a group of four. You’ll experience the hop harvest up close, including a private tour of Loftus Ranches, a leading hop producer located just outside of Yakima in the town of Moxee, Washington.
