What better way to herald the oncoming spring than with Hops & Props 2018 at the EAA Aviation Museum? This year marks the 14th anniversary of the Hops & Props beer festival and, as usual, the event just gets bigger and better with each passing year.

This year’s event features more than 80 different breweries, cideries, and wineries. Dogfish Head, 3 Floyds, New Glarus, One Barrel, and far too many others to list will be on hand with some of their best brews. Ales, lagers, stouts, sours, porters, IPA’s and more are yours for the tasting.

One of the best parts about Hops & Props are the unlimited samples. That’s right: there are no wooden coins or tickets to purchase and lose. Simply buy your ticket, collect your Hops & Props commemorative tasting glass, and get to sampling!

You’ll also have the opportunity to talk with the brewers about their beers and cast a vote for your favorite at the People’s Choice booth.

Hops & Props always includes excellent food from a great local provider. This year’s selection comes from The Machine Shed Restaurant and includes a delicious variety of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Pork belly sliders, street tacos, smoked salmon, Guinness brownies … you will not walk away hungry!

This year’s live entertainment sees the return of Paddygrass, whose foot-stomping Celtic bluegrass stylings should keep you energized. You’ll also enjoy the gritty, eclectic soul of singer Raquel Rodriguez and acoustic loop guitarist Peter D’Amore.

Every year, Hops & Props offers a five-course, gourmet VIP Beer Dinner. This year’s dinner will be hosted by Three Floyds Brewery of Munster, IN. The beer-paired meal will once again be prepared by Becket’s Restaurant of Oshkosh, WI. The dinner begins at 4:30pm and includes early access to the beer tasting. Tickets are extremely limited.
