Montana Fresh Hop Festival 2021

Come enjoy a harvest festival featuring delicious fresh hopped styles of beer from 30+ Montana breweries. Join us as we celebrate the completion of the harvest season with delicious beers, live blue grass music, and tasty eats from local food trucks. The Fresh Hop style of beers is a true brewed seasonal way of making beer. By adding fresh, straight-out-of-the-field hop cones to a brew, a more unique, floral, grassy flavor can be imparted to any style of beer. Come try a wide selection of variations on this simple theme and experience the freshness first hand!

WHAT: Come join us this October 16th as Crooked Yard Hops celebrates the end of the harvest season with the first annual Montana Fresh Hop Festival, featuring fresh-hopped beer from over 30 Montana breweries from all around the state! This unique style of beer is a true seasonal, only available each year during Hop Harvest!

WHERE: Gallatin Valley Fairgrounds Barn #1 and #2

COST: $25 gets you entry into the Festival, a commemorative tasting glass, and unlimited samples of delicious Montana brews! There will also be live bluegrass music and several local food trucks. What a deal!

WHY: Profits from this event will benefit the Gallatin Valley Land Trust (GVLT) in our work to conserve enjoyable open spaces and trails around the greater Bozeman area. These folks work hard to make sure we don’t lose what makes Bozeman so special and we couldn’t be more excited to have partnered with them! We hope this festival serves as a true celebration of our local agriculture and brings together the Farmer, Brewer, and Beer-Enjoyer as never before!
