Orcas Island to host 1st Annual Hops on the Rock

Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: "Hop" on the ferry this weekend!

November 8, 2017

Orcas Island has ALWAYS been one of my favorite local getaways, and when there's beer involved, I've already boarded the ferry. This weekend, you're invited to the 1st Annual Hops on the Rock Beer Festival with more than 20 breweries from the north Puget Sound region ready to take over Eastsound on Saturday!


Tickets are just $25, which gets you 5 tasting tokens, and any additional tokens are only $2/each.  


There will be lots of local and off-island vendors serving up delicious eats. Food tokens are $8 a piece, and you could score something yummy from The Puds!


With live music from Bellingham's Baby Cakes and several island artists, you'll be shaking and sipping all weekend long.


I hope you have a blast sampling your way through some of our area's most loved beers from breweries near and dear to our hearts! I can vouch for EVERY brewery in attendance - this is a gathering of true heavy hitters and up-and-comers!
