Tickets and packages available for this year's "Hops on the Rock" beer festival.

Orcas Island, WA … This November, on an island far, far away (well, not THAT far...) we're throwing a Beer Festival! The Hops on the Rock festival is literally shutting down the streets of Eastsound to host a weekend of drinking, dancing and NovemBEER events all across beautiful Orcas Island. Live music, local food, and 20+ local breweries from around the region will be in attendance for a destination beer festival like no other.

“We are thrilled for another festival”, says a co-founder of the event, and owner of Island Hoppin’ Brewery, Becca Gray. “After a wildly successful debut, we’re adding another tent, more music and an incredible lineup featuring our favorite producers from last year along with some fresh new faces!” Breweries attending will include Stoup, Sumerian and Aslan – among others – who will be showcasing their talents alongside local chefs and the sounds of Babycakes and The Burned.

Tickets and packages are available via the website at until October 31st, but act quickly as they will go fast!

The Hops on the Rock Committee is composed of local business persons; Regan Vaughn (Rosario Resort & Spa), Rick Hughes (Ray’s Pharmacy), Cole Sisson (Doe Bay Wine Company), Jacob Linnes (Island Market), Chase Woodward (Chased by design), Becca Gray (Island Hoppin’ Brewery) and Tim Coffey (Island Hoppin’ Brewery). They share the common belief that November is the most underrated time of the year to visit the island and that drinking beer is the most underrated excuse to do so. Look for great rates with our partners at Kenmore Air (, Rosario Resort & Spa ( and other local businesses.

Orcas Island is located in the San Juan Islands in the Northern Puget Sound. To learn more about the event visit the website at
