Hopfest our annual celebration of all things hoppy, starts tomorrow October 8th at 11am and runs through Sunday, October 12th. We are very proud of the amount of Fresh Hop, and other hoppy gems that we have collected in the past few weeks. We made a few road trips and were able to amass some rare beers for the Seattle market. It sure is hard work driving around and meeting great brewers all in the name of this festival. Hard work I say! We have a little different format this year, usually we fill all the taps with a beer or cider that fits in with the festival. This year we are starting with 42 different hoppy beers. Throughout the 5 days of this festival we will rotate in other beers as the ones we start with blow. This gives you many reasons to come back day after day to enjoy a new fresh hop or hoppy beer that wasn’t on the previous day. It all so allows us to accommodate those folks that for one reason or another aren’t in to hoppy beer. We are really excited about the line up that will be on draft tomorrow upon opening, I’ve said enough. What follows is what you can expect to see on draft, remember sometimes we make game time decisions and things change, this here is mostly if not exactly what you will see on draft tomorrow.
