Yakima is one of the few place where craft beverage producers can actually create their concoctions with locally grown ingredients. Hops, grapes, grains, apples, and so on. On November 4th, you are invited to stroll around downtown Yakima and visit local businesses where you’ll sample beer, wine, spirits and cider. It’s the Yakima Craft Beverage Walk.
As far as the beer goes (and there will be more than beer involved), you’ll enjoy beers from Bale Breaker Brewing, Berchman’s Brewing, Bron Yr Aur Brewing, Cowiche Creek Brewing, Hop Nation Brewing, Redifer Brewing, and Yakima Craft Brewing.
Here’s more info straight from the event organizers:
