Around Town - Top of the Hops Beer Festival

A great event is returning to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for its second year! It's a fun event and if you're a connoisseur of all things beer, it's one you'll want to check out.

Top of the Hops Beer Festival will be held at our beautiful Mississippi Coast Convention Center at the Coliseum in Biloxi, this Saturday, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This event showcases the growing popularity of craft beers from around the country and the world, in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Patrons will receive a commemorative sampling mug and have access to two-ounce samplings of over 150 craft beers from distributors across the world. The festival will also feature a Brew University Education Area where patrons will enjoy beer seminars such as Cooking with Beer, Food Pairings, Brewing 101 and other beer education sessions and, all new for 2012, the Bayou Teche Cask Garden. Come enjoy the mass of craft beers with live music and fun games like corn-hole and ping pong.

Grab a sneak peek brochure here, or pop over to the Top of the Hops Festival site for tickets and more information. C'mon down and have some fun y'all!

NOTE: Must be 21 or older, with a valid ID to enter festival and ID will be checked for all patrons. Have fun, but drink responsibly, and plan for cab transportation or schedule a designated driver to go with you. Local cab service will be available, and any brew crew volunteer/staff member or security personnel will call a cab for you if necessary.
