Who will be pouring the beer?
We work hard to make sure that a representative from each brewery is on hand to pour beer, answer questions, and have fun. In most cases, this will be the head brewer or founder.
Which beers will be served?
The beers at the fest are extremely fresh and limited release, so it’s hard to predict brewing schedules well in advance. However, we’ll release the beer lists in the week leading up to the fest as they become available.
Will there be enough beer?
Some breweries will kick their kegs before last call, but we will do our best to avoid this.
Will you have merchandise?
Absolutely. Hop Culture will be selling glassware, tekus, shirts, pins, and stickers designed by London-based Sam Taylor.
How do I apply for media passes?
Send an email to Kenny at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the name of your publication or account and your estimated reach.
Please DO NOT bring outside food or open any cans/bottles during the festival. For legal reasons, they will be confiscated.
It’s a beer fest and we want everyone to have a good time, but anyone that’s visibly intoxicated and acting inappropriately will be asked to leave.
