THIS SATURDAY, November 4th, is our annual charity event HOT RODS & HOPS! We hope you join us for a day full of awesome classic cars, powerful tunes provided by SOUL CUSTODY, tasty food trucks, and of course: BEER. Proceeds this year will benefit our neighbors at the Croydon VFW. We invited some of our greatest local PA brewery pals to come pour with us in this mini-Beerfest, and hope you can join us! $20 advanced tickets are available online NOW by CLICKING HERE or by visiting the brewery. $25 day-of tickets will be available, as well as $5 under 21 and designated driver tickets.
With every $20/25 ticket, you will get a cool SAMPLING GLASS, with this year’s artwork on it. Take said glass to the station of your choice and try out some beers you may never have had before!
Besides NESHAMINY CREEK BREWING, who will be offering up our entire tap list to sampling, you may be wondering what other breweries will be here and what will they be pouring? Check out that info below and head back here frequently, as we will be updating this pour list as we get the final information in from more and more of the 14 participating breweries!
