HOP is a 21+ beer festival, so please be aware there will be drinking, loud music, etc. That being said, children may attend while under constant supervision of parents.

All attendees will be carded at the door to receive their Tasting Session wristband. It doesn't matter if you are 21, 30, 50 or 100!

Folding chairs are allowed, but we ask that they are kept out of the main pathways and entrances. Our security will kindly ask you to relocate if event staff feels there is a safety concern. Be respectful of your fellow attendees!

Pop up tents are not allowed.

Keep in mind that is not the most inviting environment for doggos. The event is held on asphalt with lots of attendees and noise. That being said, well-behaved, leashed pups are allowed, just not under the main tasting tent, please.

The majority of our Tap Room parking lot will be open, as well as several public lots nearby and street parking. We encourage public transportation, cabs, Uber or biking.

HOP in the City is a rain or shine event. Barring any inclement weather, the show will go on!

The safety of our customers, artists and employees is top priority. Please check back for information regarding any safety requirements for the 2021 event.
