HGA Presents: Beer Camp, Seattle
Hop Growers of America is excited to announce we are hosting Beer Camp again in Seattle on June 30 for an evening of beer tasting from some of the finest breweries in Washington and beyond, in the surrounding states.
Beer Camp is not only a fantastic event to taste different beers from breweries you know and love plus also to discover other new favorites in a fantastic atmosphere – the beautiful oceanfront Gasworks Park! –  but you can sip happily knowing that your ticket purchase benefits Hop Growers of America (HGA). HGA is a 501 nonprofit representing the U.S. Hop Industry and its growers. Funding supports scientific research, statistics, trade – through promotion and international harmonization for plant protection – and education to both trade, media, and the general public. Hop Growers of America also works on facilitating conversations between the hop and brewing industries, for important projects like certification standardization.
In addition to hosting the event, HGA will also be pouring a beer they teamed up with Bale Breaker Brewery on, showcasing a public experimental hop: EXP: WSU11059-059. We hope to see you at Gasworks Park on June 30 from 6-10 for General Admission and for those with early entry, we’ll see you at 5 when the lines are shorter.
