Announcing HOPS! Oktoberfest 2009!
Yes, it's that time of year again... time for Oktoberfest! Homebrewer's Pride of the Southside (HOPS!), my homebrew club, will be hosting its annual fundraiser on Saturday, October 3, 2009, from 2-7pm at the Bridgeport VFW on the corner of 32nd and May, near U.S. Cellular Field. What goes on at Oktoberfest? I'm glad you asked. Well, we'll have tons of food. We'll have live music from the Polkaholics. And, most importantly, we'll have LOTS of beer. Last year we had over fifty kegs of homebrew (including our F5 Altbier) as well as kegs from Rock Bottom Chicago, Rock Bottom Orland Park, Flossmoor Station and Metropolitan. And if you stick around long enough, you might stumble upon some bottles of homemade wine, mead and liqueurs.
So how much will it cost you to enjoy such a feast? If I told you it was only $30 for FIVE hours of all you can eat/drink, would you believe me? Well, it is. And this year you can buy your tickets online from Brown Paper Tickets. So what are you waiting for? Tickets are limited, so buy yours now. And if you don't believe that it'll be awesome, check out Chicagoist's review of last year's rain-drenched Fest. Drop me a comment if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!
