We're coming back to the 'Burgh! This summer, we announced that Hop Culture was moving its HQ to Pittsburgh, and now we're throwing a proper homecoming party. Expect unlimited pours from some of the best breweries in the country, music, and merch.
Where will the event take place?
Bay 41, 4107 Willow Street, Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15201
When is this happening?
The festival will take place over a single session on Saturday, September 21st, 2019. The session will run from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Pours will stop 10 minutes before the end of the session.
Is there an age limit?
All attendees must be at least 21 years old with a valid ID.
Please no pets, children, or strollers. Do not bring any coolers, canopies, umbrellas, or tables. Bags are permissible but are subject to security inspection upon entry into the festival. No weapons of any kind are permitted.
What do I get with my admission?
The General Admission ticket option gets you a taster. Once inside the event, you'll have access to unlimited 4 ounce pours from the breweries on our list!
The Designated Driver ticket option gets you a t-shirt of your choice from the merch table.
Will there be food?
There will be food available for purchase. Vegetarian options will be available.
Who is attending?
The current list is as follows. Note that this is subject to change due to any number of extenuating factors, but we'll do everything in our power to avoid that.
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.
