Wet Hoptober Fest: Tonight!

By: Sara Innamorato

Cascade hops grown on Garfield Farms

Last spring we set out to grow hops on an unused portion of Garfield Community Farm to see if it could be a creative (and delicious) way to reuse some of the 4,500 acres of vacant land in the city. With the help of Noah of the Hop Project and the fine farmers of Garfield Farm, we set out to grow three varieties of hops for East End Brewery and - guess what - it worked!

We are inviting you to enjoy the hops of our labor with an evening of wonderful beer, tasty food and great conversation at the Wet Hoptober Fundraiser at Marty’s Market located in the Strip District. Proceeds will go towards the Garfield Hop Project.


Doors open at 5PM

Networking and beer drinking from 5-6P

Talks from Hop Farmer, Noah and ReClaim Manager, Megan starting at 6P (aka the brains behind the project)

More beer tasting from 6:30P til we wrap up around 8P

  • a pint of each of the three unique East End beers that have been wet-hopped with Cascade and Chinook hops grown as part of the Garfield Hop Project.
