Event BackgroundJoin us for this annual event to celebrate the hop harvest here in Minnesota.  Since the early days, we have been growing our own hops for our annual fresh hop brew called Harvestör™.  We have outgrown the garage and the backyard hop garden.  We have partnered up with our friends at Hippity Hops Farms in Forest Lake, MN.  They grow organic hops right here in Washington County.  Last year we enlisted your help to pick the hops at the brewery.  Not sure what to expect?  Check out the Heavy Table article from last year.
5-8 pm – All ages – Free – We will cut down the bines and bring them into the brewery.  Join us there to help pick fresh hops for the brew.  We will be brewing during the event!  We will have live blue grass music and plenty of beer.  This is open to all ages.  You must reserve your free spot using the online ticket system.
9-Midnight – 21+ – $8+fees or $10 day of – Pat McCurdy be on stage to play a great mix of tunes.  Haven’t heard of Mr. McCurdy?  Well then you are in for a treat.  Your entrance fee gets you your first beer (or root beer if you prefer) and access to the show.  Pick up tickets online or skip the fees and buy at the brewery taproom.
