Yakima Valley Museum


Brewer’s Gold was produced by the Chilliwack Museum & Archives and explores the multifaceted and often overlooked story of the hop industry in the Northwest—British Columbia as well as Washington State.

This special traveling exhibit features artifacts, photographs, and film, some borrowed from the Yakima Valley Museum and the American Hop Museum in Toppenish, and explores the industry’s development, the principal growers, the “hop craze” of the 1890s, and the diverse cultural and ethnic workforce that included Native Americans, Japanese, and Mennonites, each with their own story to tell.

The exhibit, which opened at the Royal British Columbia Museum in Victoria in 2003, will be on view at the Yakima Valley Museum through the summer of 2004.
