One of the cool parts about the influx of breweries opening around town is seeing how they all do events a little differently. I don’t know about you, but I love a beer festival. But what if someone took a beer festival and tried something completely different?

How about a beer carnival? On Saturday March 2nd, from 2PM-6PM 4 Hands Brewing Company will host their first beer festival with friends. The Lupulin Festival is a celebration of the hop and will be the release of War Hammer Imperial IPA.

War Hammer is a 9% 80 IBU Imperial IPA brewed with Pacific Northwest hops. War Hammer will be available on draft, and in bottles to go during the event.

The festival will be a carnival theme with a carnival emcee, sideshow performer, live art, live music, photo booth, and more. Food will be available for purchase from the Fifth Wheel. Tickets will be $35 and will include a hop forward selection from participating local breweries, tasting glass, and access to all of the carnival activities.
