Hops & Flip Flops Craft Beer Festival
Friday, August 22, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
It's time for the Hops & Flip Flops Craft Beer Festival! It will be held on Friday August 22nd at the Dallara IndyCar Factory at 1201 Main Street, Speedway. Approximately 20 local, regional and national breweries are planned to participate so there will be a wide selection of beers to sample. We asked each participating brewery to bring some of their most prized hop-centric beers as well as something decidedly not hoppy. The focus of the event is both great craft beer as well as showcasing a wide variety of beer styles.
In addition a street fair with a live music stage with performances by local bands Abby Something and Second Story, food vendors, beer garden, games and more will be running from 5:30 to 10 pm on the 1200 block of Main Street. Come for the craft beer event and enjoy the street fair too! Proceeds of the event will benefit the Speedway Lions Club.
