Experience the Hops

February 24 @ 1:00 PM - February 25 @ 12:00 PM

Education, kinship — and beer! This unique weekend experience will include beer sampling, educational seminars, dinner, an overnight at the Allerton estate, breakfast, and a hike on Sunday.

New this year – several registration options are available! Come out Saturday afternoon ($5) to enjoy tastings (drink tickets will be available for purchase) and mingle with brewers. Educational seminars are included in your ticket, or just enjoy a leisurely afternoon (1-5pm) with good company! Stick around for a delicious six-course meal with beer pairings (6pm), and enjoy late-night games (cards, shuffle board, pool) in the basement Rec Room. Cap-off the weekend with breakfast (8:30-10am) and a hike (10:15am) on Sunday morning.

We hope you can join for this rare opportunity to learn from – and talk with – beer experts from around the region!
