Back for its fourth year, the Long Island Hop Festival is one of the fall’s most-loved and most-anticipated events. It will introduce attendees to locally and nationally available hop-forward and hop-infused beer such as IPAs, DIPAs, NEIPAs, and more. The festival will also offer attendees the rare opportunity to taste wet hop beers (beers made with hops freshly picked and thrown into the brew kettle). PLUS, attendees will also be able to enjoy a variety of seasonal, pumpkin and Oktoberfest beers.

Live Music & Giant Pumpkin Chuckers

There will be live music by Long Island resident Andy Putman, performing the music of those who influenced him most, including: Dave Matthews, Sublime, Ed Sheeran, Bob Marley, Jason Mraz, James Taylor, Jack Johnson, Eric Clapton, Ben Harper, and Coldplay, just to name a few. Food will be available for purchase from local Jamesport-based caterer Christopher Michael Catering. Plus, attendees can, once again, try to best their friends with the return of the wildly popular giant pumpkin chuckers (giant sling shots using small pumpkins, balance, strength and skill to hit point-valued targets). A few select hard ciders will also be offered, rounding out the offerings of fall’s best fest.

The L I Hop Festival will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 12:30pm – 4:00pm at Jamesport Farm Brewery located at 5873 Sound Ave, Riverhead, NY 11901.
