In 2006, Yakima Chief, Inc. and Hopunion LLC combined their respective craft beer business segments in an agreement which allowed Hopunion to focus solely on craft brewing customers, and Yakima Chief on larger global markets. This initial market segmentation created a culture where Hopunion was influenced by independent artisan brewers, while Yakima Chief was impacted by process and the ability to meet customer requirements for compliance with supplier audits and quality criteria.

 

As craft breweries became larger and more unified in their focus on quality, sustainable practices and consistency of product, demand for both companies began to overlap. The ownership of Hopunion and Yakima Chief commissioned a study in 2013 to research the feasibility of a full business merger and whether or not the resulting new company would be better equipped to serve the entire brewing community.

 

Inspired by the shared vision of connecting family hop farms with the world’s finest brewers, Yakima Chief, Inc. and Hopunion LLC decided to fully combine operations on July 31, 2014. The resulting new company, Yakima Chief - Hopunion, or YCH HOPS for short, a 100% grower-owned supplier of hops and hop products, is who we are today.

1 lb. Hop Pellet Package

 

Great for breweries looking to test a new batch, or purchase only the quantity needed for a specific batch.

 

Hop pellets are produced from dried, whole leaf hops which have been hammer-milled into a uniform powder and pressed through a pellet die. Leaf hops vary in oil and vegetative content, so pellet compression is fine-tuned to achieve a consistent density for repeatable brewing, batch after batch.

1 oz. Hop Pellet Package

 

The perfect package size for homebrewers.

Important facts about Cryo Hops®:

 

  • Developed for exceptional aroma and flavor - not recommended as a bittering hop
  • Lupulin is separated out to create LupuLN2® making it easier to rack the wort off of the sediment
  • While Cryo Hops® are more expensive than traditionally packaged hops, you only need a fraction of the amount of hops in your brew to get even better aroma and flavor
  • Developed to be used as a late kettle addition and for dry hopping
