After spending some time talking to one of the event organizers, Patrick, he gave us a few hints for some of the exciting stuff being added this year. “The attendees will have the chance to meet and talk with some of the local brewers themselves, in addition you will also get the chance to vote on the best IPA, best pumpkin and best overall beers, making the event more hands on.”

Also- be on the lookout for the “after party” where ALL BEER MUST GO. (!!!!)

What better way to celebrate the beginning of the fall season then with a beer festival overflowing with samples from our favorite local breweries? The weather is sure to be beautiful; we’ll see you at Hoopers!
