Last week, three Coronado brewers, Mark, Bart, and Bryce, traveled up north to Yakima, Washington to observe and select various hops for the 2022 brew year. Bart Gumpert, CBC’s Innovation Brewer, took photos of the trip to share with those who may be curious about hop selection and what the process entails.
First stop- HAAS Pellet & Warehouse Complex
Next stop- Hollingsworth & Sons Facility

Cheers to another successful hop selection trip in the books. With hop selection complete, Coronado Brewing looks forward to another innovative year filled with hoppy new beers brewed with the best hops in the Pacific Northwest. Next time you’re in the Tasting Room, ask your server about the specific hops that go into the beer in your hand!
