On April 18th, 2020, Hop Culture is coming back to the Bay Are to throw the third annual Juicy Brews WestFest Craft Beer Festival. This year we’ll be hosting the festival with our friends at The Rare Barrel in Berkeley, CA. We’ll have an amazing lineup of craft beverage producers including the country’s best breweries, wineries, and cideries. Plus, there will be very danceable music, local food vendors, and our friend and artist @killeracid, who designed this year’s festival poster, will be popping up with his very 4/20-friendly merch. Tickets for the festival go live on Monday, February 17th at noon PST so set a reminder!

The Fest

Juicy Brews WestFest is one of our favorite festivals to throw. We’re always thrilled to visit the Bay Area and this fest always becomes one of the best parties of the year. In year’s past, we collaborated with the talented folks at Oaklandish and surfed with our friends at Humble Sea. Not to mention we get to spend time at Ordinaire, one of our favorite natural wine bars, and eat incredible food at Cheese Board Pizza, Bartavelle, and Chez Panisse (for a special treat).
