Reggie Brulotte, a sixth generation hop farmer, can trace her roots in the industry back to 1885. Brulotte Farms, Inc. was formally established by her grandfather, Roland, in 1944 when the family settled in Toppenish, WA. Since then, the Brulottes have created a lasting legacy with a reputation for delivering a vast selection of premium hops. Reggie is an active member in the hop industry, serving on several boards and committees for the Washington Hop Commission and spent 12 years as the Washington representative for the Hop Research Council and Hop Plant Protection Committee.
The Brulottes are passionate about meeting the unique needs of breweries as they constantly add diversity to their already long list of varieties grown. Brulotte Farms currently offers a large selection of hops, growing more than 20 hop varieties. They embrace new innovative hops that enter the industry, and also enjoy growing older varietals such as Comet that many new craft brewers have never seen. As the brewing industry grows, the Brulotte family works diligently to increase harvest capacity to allow for acreage expansion and the continuous flow of hop forward beers.
Reggie has received the International Order of the Hop Award. In addition, she earned top honors in the 2014 Hop Quality Group Cascade Cup for the exceptional production of Cascade hops, and was named a top finalist in 2015. The Brulottes are inspired by the passion of brewers and beer drinkers alike and enjoy supplying them with a quality, key ingredient.
