Mount Hope Brewfest

As many of you probably know, Mount Hope Winery has a large Renaissance fair that runs for several months out of the year.  What you may not know is that they have a large Brewfest that they hold one day a year that is pretty epic in terms of breweries.  Your ticket price includes all the beer samples you can drink, a sample glass, free food from various stalls throughout the park and entertainment.  this first link is for additional info about the fest:

Tickets need to be purchased individually and I recommend in advance.  Last year, I was able to get in at the door however I wouldn't recommend taking the risk - this is an extremely popular event and is likely to sell out.  Additionally, you save money by purchasing it in advance!  Let's meet outside the entrance to the wine shop (prior to taking our tickets through the line) at 10:45am so we can get organized before heading into the festival.  The link to purchase tickets is below.

      Evelyn if you need a ride I could probably take you if you don't have one by the time it this trip begins.

    Everyone,

    Just uploaded several pictures of today's meetup. There are several versions of the group picture to allow a choice if you want to download a group picture.

    Just got home. And I think I just missed the windy rain that blew in from Philly! Thank you Erica for a fun day and making it possible for me to find all of you. It was a great first Meetup with very nice company :-)

    Had a great time and met some really nice folks. Thanks Erica for your efforts in organizing the outing and keeping us "walking". See everyone again soon.

    Hey all! Just a quick update - it looks like they are calling for rain tomorrow. It rained last year and we still had a great time but if that affects your plans to attend, please update your RSVP. Otherwise, come prepared for the weather and I'll see you tomorrow!

      Hi Erica, this is my first Meetup with you guys. Will you all be gathering somewhere inside? How will I find the group?

      May 9, 2014

    • Erica

      Hi Deb, we will be meeting outside the front gate by the wine shop. It should be on your left right after you leave the parking lot. I will post my cell phone number in the morning again for anybody who has trouble finding the group. See you tomorrow!

      Great! Would you like to meet in the Lowe's lot? Your "sobriety" plan sounds like a good one.

      Julie - please contact me on one of the numbers I sent you so we can coordinate tomorrow's plan.

    Hi Erica! Just wondering about this event - it says it runs to 3PM. Is that a firm time that we have to leave by? There's another time slot for the Brewfest that runs 4:30 to 8:30. Reason I ask is that I won't be able to get it there till between 12:30-1pm. Not sure if it makes it worth coming if we all have to leave at 3... Any suggestions/comments?

    May 5, 2014

    • Erica

      Hi Lance, we don't have to leave at exactly 3pm but that is when they will stop serving beer to our time slot. Its hard for me to say whether or not its worth coming - it does still give you 2+ hours of time to drink beer but if lines are long, that might not give you your money's worth. Sorry not sure if that was helpful!

      May 8, 2014

    • Lance R.

      Yes that was very helpful. Thank you! =)

    This sounds awesome! Would need a ride home and/or accommodations to crash somewhere... Anyone else think so too???

    1 · March 30, 2014

    • Kirk

      I agree with you Janelle. I will probably need to get a motel room in the area.
