Juicy Brews WestFest, Hop Culture’s first craft beer festival on the West Coast, is only a few days away. We’re excited to bring along some of our favorite East Coast breweries — like Dancing Gnome, Magnify, and Triple Crossing — and we can’t wait to try some delicious Bay Area beer.

We’ll also be hosting a pop-up event with our friends at Oaklandish on 4/20. Come hang with us at their downtown location from 5-7 PM; we’ll be slinging some exclusive merch, including a dope t-shirt collab with Oaklandish, and dancing to some tunes from DJ METHODS. If you can’t make it to the pop-up but still want some 4/20 merchandise, you can shop our online store for all the juicy swag.

We’ll also have select merchandise at the festival on 4/22 along with some tasty, tasty beer. Check the list below to see all the beer being poured at the festival, or check out the WestFest Untappd page.
