6th Annual Veterans Blend Selection


10:00am - 11:00am

Join us for the 6th Annual Veterans Blend Final Selection Wednesday, May 10th  10-11am  |   Room #201AB Attention  all beer industry service members! Each year during the Craft Brewers Conference (CBC), Yakima Chief Hops (YCH) hosts a selection party for military veterans working in the beer industry to get hands on with this unique community blend. Each year’s blend benefits a nonprofit organization chosen by the veteran brewer community. In the last five years we have been able to donate over   dollars to organizations making a meaningful impact for this country’s former service members. The 6th annual blend will benefit Homes for Our Troops, working to secure accessible housing for critically disabled veterans. This organization is unique, in that they not only build a fully modified and accessible home with accommodations for visiting and supporting family members, but they also keep in contact to support these veterans  for the rest of their lives. From Bill Ivey, Executive Director of Homes for Our Troops,  “A fully adapted home is the supporting effort, it’s the platform for them to relaunch their lives.” Veterans within the brewing community have been working on the preliminary selection process, and blends will be narrowed down to 3 final combinations to choose from. Veterans working in the brewing industry are invited to evaluate hops and cast their vote for the 6th annual Veterans Blend!
