I’ve never had as much access to great hops and the growers themselves as I do now that I’ve found Yakima Quality Hops.

Quality first is the name of the game. The hops we get from Yakima Quality Hops are better than most of the large brokers, and the customer service is far superior to that of any other broker. Working with Tim is truly a team relationship, and I look forward to many future years of contracting.

Tim Sattler, Founder & President

Tim has lived and worked alongside the Yakima Valley's hop growers for decades. Years back, Tim's best friends founded a brewery in Spokane, Washington. The conversation turned one day to 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, Yakima Quality Hops was born.

What else? Tim's an avid fisherman, a devoted Gonzaga fan, and a loving father of two amazing young people.

Lee Rottweiler, Vice President

Before being roped into the world of hops, Tim's nephew Lee was a teacher and school administrator in Washington and South Carolina. Lee now lives in Zillah, WA, and oversees operations for Yakima Quality Hops.

Lee's a husband of 15 years and a proud father of two energetic young kids. When not exploring Zillah with his family and reconnecting to his Washington roots, Lee enjoys working with brewers of all sizes and giving them direct access to the fascinating world of hops farming.  

The team at Yakima Quality Hops has been amazing to work with. They have a very wide variety of hops available, competitive pricing, and customer service that is quick and easy. We have developed a great partnership and I look forward to working with them for years to come.

We're proud of the relationships we've built with brewers around the world. Here's what our customers are saying about us:

Working with Tim is very easy. Tim strives to make sure his customers have a personal relationship with him, thus making working together much more enjoyable. I am confident that Tim is giving me the best quality hops he can source, is doing it at a fair price, and is committed to keeping me happy through constant communication. We consider Tim a partner in our growth and feel fortunate to have him in our corner.

Thanks for being so flexible with us. I wish that everyone else we deal with was half as understanding as y’all.
The folks at Yakima Quality Hops have always been a pleasure to work with, they are all around great people! The hop quality is world class and their deliveries are always on spot. They set a great example of a “customer first” service mentality, and we look forward to growing our partnership with them in the future!
I wanted to write immediately to thank you for what was probably my favorite interaction at CBC: our time at your booth, talking hops, crushing hops, smelling hops, getting hops on our faces, learning about you and your growers, and contemplating the idea of a trip out for the harvest in the fall. Your enthusiasm for your work is contagious.
