At the R2Hop2 Beer and Music Festival, local brewers and music-makers come together for six hours of sudsy merrymaking. Bond and Bentley and the Grilled Lincolns inject tunes into the afternoon, with the former unspooling a hip-hop flow against a backdrop of funk and rock. Pasadena follows, banging out reggae rock that sends listeners down a sonic highway that’s paved with gravelly vocals and smooth-as-asphalt bass lines, and area favorites The Rovers belt out their trademark Celtic rock. Between sets, festival-goers may avail themselves of five samples each of some of Fordham and Old Dominion’s specialty brews, including Oak Barrel Stout and Hop Mountain. Underage attendees amuse themselves at the kids’ table or by sampling the rows of bier dawgs, pulled pork, and artisan root beer. All participants take home a commemorative drinking glass, which can also double as prescription beer goggles.
Fordham & Old Dominion Brewing Company
The Fordham & Old Dominion story started in 1989 when Jerry Bailey followed his passion for experimental brews by opening Old Dominion, which quickly gathered a loyal local following. In 1995, Bill Muehlhauser opened Fordham, and the two breweries joined forces 12 years later. Today, the company—led by Muehlhauser—remains dedicated to artfully crafted ales, lagers, and sodas with unique flavor profiles. These brews include the Double D IPA with guava and mango aromas as well as the Baltic porter, which combines the flavors of licorice and toffee with a touch of rye.
