Hops in the Park
CHESTER — The public is invited to toast Virginia’s agricultural pride with food, music, and beer. In collaboration with Capital Ale House, the Henricus Foundation will present the third annual Hops in the Park festival at Henricus Historical Park on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. This one-of-a-kind premiere harvest festival features Virginia craft beer, Virginia hops farmers, a Virginia farmer’s market, and Virginia history.
Headlining the musical entertainment, local favorites Jackass Flats will take the main stage at 3 p.m., with Markiss Blowfish and Rick Hollowell performing during the day. Learn about the history of Virginia hops with Old Dominion Hops Cooperative and view demonstrations of brewing - then and now - with the Henricus interpreters and Mentoring Advanced Standards of Homebrewing (M.A.S.H.)
