Let’s face it, those of us who enjoy craft beer also enjoy many of the other finer things in life. We are individuals of refined taste, with an appreciation of quality and craftsmanship. We know what’s really important: quality beverages of all types.
That said, please join us in welcoming a new sponsor – Hop Scotch Beer & Scotch Festival. For the 11th year, Bold Hat Productions presents an event that celebrates beer and other fine libations. The event takes place at the Fremont Studios on Friday, February 22 and Saturday, February 23. Sampling more than 60 different beers from over 30 breweries isn’t the only thing this event offers, but it’s a good place to start.
In addition to the beer, you have the opportunity to sample an impressive selection of Scotch and Whiskey. Perhaps you have a passion for the vino? Yep, they will have wine as well. That’s not all – they’ll even have some ciders available. There are different admission levels available depending on the depth and breadth of your passions. Check out the tickets page for details.
Add a swanky atmosphere and some thumpin’ tunes to that equation and you end up with one rocking good party. This is a 21+ event. Once you’re there you’ll appreciate that fact.
