The Fresh Harvest Beer Festival

This celebration of beers and the annual hop harvest will feature creations by leading independent breweries 2Halfs, One Drop Brewing Co, Rocks Brewing Co, Seeker Brewing, The Social Brewers, and Frenchies Brewery, an opportunity for visitors to sip a wide range of unique beers all in the one place.

New this year, a Hop Olympics will run at scheduled times throughout the day, and feature a hop matching challenge, where guests will be invited to pair select hops with their accompanying beers, sack racing, and for a little bit of nostalgia, hopscotch, where prizes will be up for grabs.

Additionally, educational panels covering hop trends, releases and usages will take place within Frenchies’ new, expanded brewery space, making the event a must for those with a keen interest in not only beer, but brewing of the liquid gold. The event includes two ticket options in 2024.

Priced at $25, the first includes access to the event, games and panels, meanwhile the second features all of this, plus lunch from a dedicated beer food menu at the adjoining Bistro, and a 30-minute brewery tour for $59 per person. Additionally, those who secure their tickets by Wednesday, 8 May will have their name featured on the event’s dedicated can, making it the ultimate memento from the day.
