Hop Mob Roadshow @ Sports Center
February 8 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The term Hop Mob refers to a robust collection of Triple IPAs. These super-hoppy beers typically weigh in at more than 10 percent Alcohol By Volume.
This year, dozens of Washington breweries are creating triple IPAs and releasing them at the same time.The term Roadshow refers to the fact that this is not just one event, but a series of events across Western Washington spread out over the course of 10 days (starting on February 7, 2019). Sports Center is the only featured East of the Cascades!
In Washington, hops are more than an ingredient, they’re a way of life. The Yakima Valley produces between 70 and 80 percent of the nation’s hop crop each year, and about 25 percent of the world’s annual hop crop. Beyond the beer, Hop Mob is a celebration of hops and the relationship between hop farmers and brewers. It’s a bond that is particularly strong here in Washington.
