Hoptober Pressed - A Benefit For Bob Myers


by Christopher James October 11, 2016

We are welcoming Autumn with round three of our annual beer themed art show: Hoptober Pressed. This year, our event will be a benefit fundraiser for our friend Bob Myers, founder of Modern Monks Brewery. In 2015, Bob was diagnosed with cancer. He was instrumental in starting and promoting Hoptober Pressed in 2012, and we can think of no better way to thank him than to dedicate this year's event to help him fight his battle against cancer. We are donating 100% of the profits from the event directly to Bob and his family. So come one, come all to a fun night of great art, delicious beer, salty snacks and party punk polka music from the Bolzen Beer Band!

Local Artists have created beer themed art to be sold that evening. Each piece will be letterpress printed on our small batch, handcrafted beer paper, embedded with the finest quality spent grain from local breweries.

We will have a commemorative tasting glass for $20 that will allow you to sample all the brews from Blue Blood, Zip Line, Plowshare and Empyrean. In addition the Bolzen Beer Band will be on hand! Come join us for an evening of art, beer and music.

If you missed this event in the past be sure to make it this year! The art was amazing, the beer was wet and the sounds were incredible!
