From prohibition to the hop capital of the world lies the history of Yakima Craft Brewing Co.
Yakima Brewing & Malting Co, also known as Grant’s Brewery Pub was opened in 1982 in Yakima by Bert Grant. Its widely regarded as the 1st craft brewery after prohibition. Grant’s Brewery Pub was closed in 2005. Thus, leaving a hole in what was soon to become the hop capital of the world.
This is when the idea of Yakima Craft Brewing Co was born. With the determination of family and friends Yakima Craft Brewing Co was founded in 2007 and sold our first beer in 2008. We started with a 3 ½ barrel (BBL) system which included Bert Grant’s original copper kettle. Our 1982 Amber Ale pays tribute to the legacy of Bert Grant and his contribution to the craft brewing industry. In 2013, we expanded our brewing operations to a 20 BBL system.
In 2016 the Yakima Valley surpassed Germany in Hop production making Yakima the Hop Capital of the World. Yakima and it’s surrounding areas now boasts several craft breweries with the continuousness of new breweries opening all the time. This is excellent news for craft beer lovers everywhere and we are excited to be a part of the movement!
In 2017, we were pleased to introduce our new branding, the expansion of our taproom, and our new name, paying tribute to the region producing the hops for each of our signature beers.
Now Hop Capital Brewing, it prides itself in creating quality craft beers while connecting with local companies and the community. We are tucked away in the industrial area off River road in the heart of Yakima. Come see us at our taproom for some amazing beer and enjoy our personal and friendly atmosphere. Coming soon, you'll be able to enjoy your favorite Hop Capital brews at our new brew pub in Portland, Oregon!
We look forward to having you visit us soon.
