Beer Writing, Well Crafted.
WHO In late 2016, Hop Culture was started in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to provide independent craft beer journalism. WHAT Hop Culture was born as an online magazine, and has since grown to include a festival/party circuit and regular merch drops. WHERE After several years in NYC, we moved our headquarters back to where it all started in Pittsburgh. However, we spend most of our time on the road, throwing parties and collabing with our favorite brewers and friends. WHEN Our online magazine publishes (almost) each weekday. To read the mag, click here. Our merch drops sporadically. Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Instagram to stay up to date. To view our upcoming events, click here. WHY To get people excited about our favorite drink, and help shine the spotlight on local craftsmen.
