Come up from New York City by train or join us from Upstate for a killer Saturday of beer and lawn games.

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 artist Sam Taylor.
How do I apply for media passes?
Send an email with your request to 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 party and we want everyone to have a good time, but anyone that’s visibly intoxicated and acting inappropriately will be asked to leave. Everyone drinks at their own risk. There is no re-entry on event grounds. Once you exit, you must leave the premises. The event is outdoors and will be rain or shine.
We strongly encourage that attendees use services like Uber, Lyft, or local taxis, but there are parking spaces near the train station.
There’s a chance we’ll be taking photos or filming video at this event. Please be aware that we might use this content for certain promotional material, especially if it looks like you’re having a great time. Also, by purchasing a ticket, you acknowledge that you’re over the age of 21. You also agree to release Hop Culture, LLC, and its successors, assigns, partners, and licensees from any liability that may arise from your behavior during or after attending this event.

We look forward to seeing you on September 28th!
