12th Annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA.- Fall is officially here, which means it's time for Yakima's 12th annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival.

     It's only going on Saturday night from five to ten, but it takes months of preparation to organize the event.

     Organizers told us that hundreds from the community volunteer their time each year to help pull off the festival.

“There is a huge, massive effort in getting tents up and decorating in a short amount of time, which is why our volunteers are so important to us, and it wouldn't happen without them,” festival organizer Heidi Stanthfield told KNDO.

      The festival has grown in recent years they'll have 36 local breweries represented at the event and two bands from Seattle performing.

     They're expecting around 5,000 people to attend this evening.

     The VIP tent opens at four thirty, but general admission gates open at five.
