Founded in 2013, Yakima Quality Hops provides the highest quality products and service to breweries throughout the United States and abroad. Based in Yakima, WA, we work directly with growers, allowing us to offer the best pricing and quality control.
Tim Sattler, Founder & President
A long-time Yakima native, Tim has lived and worked alongside the valley's hop growers for decades. As fate would have it, years back, one of his best friends founded a brewery in Spokane Washington. One day, the conversation went something like this: "Hey Tim, I know you're friends with the farmers in Yakima. Any chance you could find me a couple boxes of Chinook?" From those humble beginnings, one thing led to another, the stars aligned, and Yakima Quality Hops was born.
What else? Well, Tim's an avid fisherman, a devoted Gonzaga fan, and a loving father of two amazing young people.
Lee Rottweiler, Vice President
Lee is Tim's brilliant nephew. Before being roped into the world of hops, he was a teacher, school administrator, and glutton for punishment. Now, Lee is happier - he is overseeing east coast operations for the family company, traveling the south, and being introduced to a LOT of great beer.
Lee's also a proud father to two young kiddos and a husband of almost 15 years. He also likes to fish (though he is yet to actually catch anything in the waters off of Hilton Head Island... if anyone has advice, send it along!).
