Wandering Hop is a brewery inspired by a love of craft beer and a passion for traveling. We currently operate a 3.5bbl brewhouse for our staple beers and a 1/2bbl pilot system for our experimental brews.
Our taproom is located at 508 N. 20th Ave in the heart of hop country, Yakima Washington.
Wandering Hop was founded by Sonny Cooper and Nathan Cooper in May of 2015 when the idea was born. The Pilot System from MoreBeer was delivered in June of 2015. Since then, the Brewsculpture has turned out over 150 batches and continues to be used 3-4 times a week to produce small batch experimental brews.
In April of 2016 we purchased our current location and began demolition and the massive remodel. After 17 months of electrical, plumbing, roofing, framing and cosmetic work, we officially (and secretly) opened our doors on September 22, 2017. While the taproom isn’t the final representation of our dream, it’s a good start and gives visitors an idea of our direction and future plans.
The beer we brew is inspired by our travels and experiences we’ve shared with family and friends. We keep a variety of beer on tap from heavily hopped IPA’s to Imperial Stouts, Ambers, Pales and Seasonal Favorites. Our motto is “we’re going places” and that will always remain true as we constantly seek out new adventures, looking for inspiration to bring back to our customer’s glasses. Our hope is to share our travels in the form of well crafted, quality beer.
