Sure thing! We will have bars open on the festival grounds for anyone who wants to just come hang out and purchase pints.

Designated Drivers do not need tickets.

Limited food will be available for purchase on the festival grounds, as well as our full menu available inside the Tap Room brewpub.

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 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!

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.

Folding chairs are allowed, but we ask that they are kept out of the main pathways and entrances. Be respectful of your fellow attendees!

Pop up tents are not allowed.

Since HOP in the City takes place on our main parking lots, there will not be immediate parking available. There are several public lots nearby, as well as street parking - but they will fill quickly. We encourage public transportation, cabs, Uber or biking.

Unfortunately the tickets are non-refundable but can be transferred to a friend. Simply email them your confirmation or login into your Eventbrite account to change the name on the ticket.

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