Become a part of where great beer begins.

Have you ever experienced the distinct flavors of an artfully brewed craft beer and wondered where it all begins? Chances are, it started with us – the growers and employees of Yakima Chief Hops located in the heart of hop country. For many of us, our drive to work is through the family farms and hop fields that give life to the craft beer industry.

The hop and brewing industries both have an unwavering community spirit. Hops just have a way of bringing people together. Inspired by this community spirit, we at Yakima Chief Hops want everyone who works here to feel a sense of family. The family hop farms of the Pacific Northwest are an extension of YCH, and we want our company culture to emulate that welcoming atmosphere.

This is why we offer competitive compensation, career development opportunities and rewarding work you can taste in so many ways. We want our employees to feel acknowledged and appreciated. We’re always looking for skilled, energetic individuals who enjoy a fast-paced, dynamic work environment. If that sounds like you, we invite you to apply.
