Hops have been part of our family since 1942. Since then, we’ve built relationships with growers, learned about hop varieties and supply, and brokered hundreds of millions of pounds of hops around the world.
Now in our family’s fourth generation, Hollingbery and Son is still dedicated to the values passed on by founder O.E. “Babe” Hollingbery: personalized service, an unwavering commitment to quality, and the flexibility to meet the changing needs of our customers.
Four generations of Hollingbery men
the first generation of Hollingbery, established Hollingbery Hops in 1942. Before opening Hollingbery Hops, Babe was the most successful football coach in Washington State University history, over seventeen seasons. During the wartime break in football, Babe followed his friend, the largest hop grower in the world at the time, to Yakima to help broker hops. Thus sparked the Hollingbery families’ passion for the Yakima Valley and the hop industry that spread across the four generations.
has brought new opportunities to the hop industry. We’re excited to be a part of the passion of these brewers, brewers who enjoy making beer that they and their friends want to drink.
Life is great in Yakima. With plenty of outdoor recreation, 300 days of sunshine, and beautiful nature spots all around us, there’s always something to do. Our Historic Downtown features delicious restaurants, boutique shopping, and entertainment venues. Whether you like biking, rafting, hiking, golfing, fishing, hunting, skiing, Yakima has something for you.
Bring your family to Yakima, and we’ll show you around. While you’re here, you can tour our facilities, smell the hops for yourself, and even experience the hop harvest yourself in late August, early September.
We care about making our community a great place to live. That’s why we’re involved in volunteer projects, local nonprofit boards, and giving back to area schools.
