Join Stones Throw Brewery in Bellingham on Saturday, September 23rd for a street party. Along with the party, and a lot of Stones Throw beers, the brewery is asking the community to bring in their home-grown hops. The day after the party, Stones Throw will brew its Community Hopped Ale. So, get up that morning, pick your hops, and bring ’em to the party.
The announcement from the brewery says: “Shut down the street and drink a beer with your neighbor – the Stones Throw Fresh Hop Block Party is coming up! All ages are invited down to the brewery for the free live music on Saturday, Sept. 23rd, noon to 8pm, as we release our annual Fresh Hop Beer and pick hops for our Community Hopped Ale!”
“Jasmine Greene Band will be performing from 1pm-4pm. Pat McFarland takes the stage at 5pm, playing until the night ends at 8pm. Street Dogz, Mixed Masala, and Cicchitti’s Pizza will be serving up delicious food all day. The Reel Mobile, a vintage camper photo booth, will be offering free photo booth sessions in the afternoon for all Block Party patrons. “
“This year we’ll be partnering with The Cup Project, to offer stainless steel reusable cups for our Block Party beer drinkers in an effort to reduce plastic waste.”
“Ten different Stones Throw brews will be on tap, featuring flagships such as the Neighborhood IPA, Raincountry Liquid Sunshine Lager, Two Dollah Porter, and Happy Valley Hazy, as well as a Centennial Fresh Hop Ale brewed specially for the season and released for the Block Party.”
“In addition to the festivities, we’re calling out for community hops! Every year Stones Throw brews a Fresh Hop Ale with the hops our neighbors bring in. We’ll be collecting hops the day before the Block Party (and brewing the day after), so drop off your hops at Stones Throw on Friday, Sept. 22nd, or Saturday, Sept. 23rd to be a part of this year’s Community Fresh Hop.”
“As always, Stones Throw Block Parties are free to attend, family (and dog) friendly, come rain-or-shine. The taps will be flowing Saturday, Sept. 23rd, as this Fresh Hop Block Party will be another one to remember!’
