Hop Hysteria is yet another wonderful excuse to get out of the house while putting some mileage on some footwear. It’s also a perfectly good reason to carpet bomb your taste buds on some awesome IPAS.

Lasting 11 days, Hop Hysteria is all about hops. With the festival featuring rotating draft, bottles, and of course different Randal-infused experiments; there won’t be an empty glass.

Here’s the starting lineup for this Saturday!
