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.

Other FAQs

Absolutely. Hop Culture will be selling glassware, tekus, shirts, pins, and stickers designed by London-based Sam Taylor.
