Hopstock beer festival will be June 16 to 23


The West Sound Beer Community will host the Third annual West Sound Beer week, "Hopstock 2013" from June 16  to 23. The West Sound Beer Community consists of breweries, brewpubs, bars, restaurants and retailers throughout the West Sound who present a week of celebrating all things beer with numerous events and brewery features.

Ranging from brewers nights, to samplings, special limited releases, beer dinners, price features, fundraisers, a Pub crawl through Poulsbo, and even a “beer run”, the West Sound Beer community will offer daily events throughout the week following Father’s Day.

The events will feature the numerous breweries that span the map of the Kitsap  and Olympic Peninsula’s and the local businesses that support and offer their locally handcrafted beers.

“We have such a blossoming beer community here in the West Sound," said Derek Gress of Fingers Duke Apparel, the acting coordinator of Hopstock 2013. "It really stands to be celebrated and brought attention too. Hopstock is the perfect opportunity to do that and I am honored and excited to be a part of it.

“There really is community feel to how all the brewery community interacts and works together. Aside from enjoying some wonderful local fresh beer at these events, my hope is that those who participate feel like they get to become part of or even more part of that community as well.”
