Yakima, WA and Malvern, UK: 100% grower-owned hop supplier Yakima Chief Hops (YCH) is pleased to announce a distribution agreement with grower-owned hop and brewing ingredients supplier Charles Faram & Co Ltd to serve brewers in the United Kingdom.

This is an exciting moment for UK breweries, as they will have faster access to deliveries of YCH hops with the Charles Faram local warehouse and distribution hub expediting access to sought-after hop varieties such as Simcoe®, Citra®, Mosaic®, Cryo Hops ®, and other advanced offerings from YCH’s innovation pipeline. Supplying hops for over 150 years, Charles Faram has an established and deep commitment to exceptional customer service, making the collaboration a natural fit with YCH’s customer-centric values. The Charles Faram team is readily available to assist their customer base with technical brewing support, and varietal recommendations.

Supplying a range of top-quality products, including hops, malt, yeast, fruit purées, liquid flavours, brewing aids and others, Faram’s is an ideal place to source all your consumables in a simple, single delivery.

All YCH brands from the 2024 crop year will be available for UK brewers to contract through Faram’s, along with many varieties from the 2023 crop year. Spot availability of YCH proprietary brands, including Cryo Hops®, will be available to purchase through Faram’s beginning in April.

“To complement YCH’s direct presence in the UK market, we look forward to brewers having improved access to our products through Charles Faram’s extensive network,” says Dean Monshing, Senior Vice President of Global Sales for Yakima Chief Hops. “Charles Faram & Co. works with almost everybody in the United Kingdom. They have a long history with the brewing community, and we are happy to see our brand interlinked with their longstanding service.”

“Following feedback in our customer survey,” says Paul Corbett, Managing Director at Charles Faram “to have more YCH products available we are delighted to announce this new collaboration.  We will now be able to offer the excellent YCH varieties and products and give our customers easy access to them from our store here in the UK. We believe it is very positive for all parties.”

Brewers in the United Kingdom can expect more details on spot availability in April. In the meantime, we encourage BeerX attendees to visit the YCH team in booths 114-115 and the Charles Faram team in booths 59-61!
