Local “hopheads” and craft beer junkies are buzzing about the first ever HopFest in downtown Plymouth this month. Organized by HopHead events, the exclusive craft beer festival will be held on Saturday, August 22 and will feature samples of more than 50 beers from 25 of the country’s best craft breweries, including brews from local heavy hitters like Mayflower Brewing Company, Harpoon Brewery, Jack’s Abby Brewing and Samuel Adams. “The South Shore needs an event like this,” says HopHead events founder and coordinator Steven Hall. “We’re hopping on the coattails of the craft beer movement.”
The all-day festival is divided into two sessions and will include live music from Americana band Jake Hill & Deep Creek and Rockabilly band Lonesome Jukebox, as well as delicious eats from local vendors and food trucks. Sessions run from noon – 3 p.m. and 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. and guests will be given unlimited tastings at each table. Non-drinkers are also welcomed to join the party and may purchase special “designated driver” tickets for $12. General admission tickets are $40-$50 and must be purchased in advance online or at partnering brick-and-mortar businesses (which will sell tickets at a discounted rates).
