‘Get Outta Town’ to Get Your Beer On!

It’s already the end of August, but there’s plenty of summer left in the North State. And nothing says “summer” like beer! Cool, frosty microbrews, to be exact. So, get outta town this weekend and hang out with folks who take beer seriously at the Hops in Humboldt Microbrew Festival.

Try unlimited samples of hand-crafted brews from across the country, listen to three bands, browse for local art and soak up the suds with homemade tamales, tri-trip sandwiches and artisan sausage … all under a 6,000-square-foot tent to keep you cool.

Make sure you take your cell so you can text a vote for your favorite local brew and help decide who takes home the coveted “Best of Humboldt” prize. Bring your loose change, too. There’s fun to be had at the beer ring toss and “stand the bottle” game.

So, go west, beer aficionados. See you in Humboldt.
