Top of the Hops Beer Festival
The people of Abita Brewing Company like to share their love of beer. By presenting the fourth annual Top of the Hops festival, they're introducing Jackson to more than 150 craft brews from across the globe. On tap are titans of the suds-smithing industry such as Blue Moon, Samuel Adams, and Shock Top alongside lesser-known brewers such as Yazoo, Crooked Letter, Diamond Bear, and Tin Roof. But the love of beer extends beyond a mouthful. The Sam Adams Brew University Education Area ensures attendees enjoy the various complexities of their favorite sudsy brew by focusing on cooking with beer, brewing, and food pairing.
All the while, activities pair with every sip. Corn-hole helps to define the laid-back atmosphere at the fest and distract players whose hands have become fused to their sampling mug. Local Grateful Dead–tribute Otis Lotus, meanwhile, lines up an unpredictable setlist from their library of more than 100 jams, using modified instruments to faithfully recreate the inimitable Dead sound.
