This bizarrely delicious beer fest brings together 16 breweries, each tasked with crafting a beer from a randomly selected ingredient.

On Saturday, October 19th, come to Drake’s Dealership for the return of Hop Chef! This bizarrely delicious invitational brings together sixteen local breweries, each tasked with crafting a beer from a randomly selected ingredient. We’re talking everything from ginger to juniper berries, pineapple to peppercorns, and everything seasonal in between!

Your ticket includes a signature tasting glass, unlimited tastes of all sixteen never-before-seen beers and three voting tokens to help our panel of celebrity judges decide the winner. Past judging categories have included Best Beer Name, A For Effort and Best Use of Ingredient. Winner of the People’s Choice Award will take home the coveted 2019 Hop Chef Champion Brewery Mash Paddle!

Enjoy live music and tasty eats from a variety of vendors. The full list of participating breweries and their selected ingredients is coming soon.

Hop Chef is open to the public (all ages welcome), but you must be 21+ to purchase glass and beer tasting ticket. This event is dog-friendly, so long as doggos remain well-behaved and on-leash. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $30, or $40 at the door, pending availability.
