Hop Stop 2018

Not-For-Profit Craft Beer Festival supporting Art and Landscape Design

Riverside Foods, in conjunction with the Olmsted Society and the Riverside Art Center, brings you the HopStop Craft Beer Festival. This fourth year of HopStop will certainly be one to celebrate, as we are honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Olmsted Society, and the 25th Anniversary of the Riverside Art Center.

In honor of these anniversaries, Hop Stop will be expanded for 2018, with a new location on Quincy Street, in front of the Riverside Art Center, in downtown Riverside. We will be sampling offerings from local craft brewers, cideries, and Riverside’s own Quincy Street Distillery. Make use of free bicycle valet, bring a designated driver, or take the Metra, which drops you half a block away. An art auction will be staged in the Arts Center with bidding during the festival. Click here to preview auction items and start bidding now!  Enjoy food from Flur and LaBarra (food available for purchase), art activities for children available through sign up with the Riverside Arts Center, and live music from The Saltimbanques, Dirty Green, The Mountainaires, and The Sundown Club to round out a wonderful outdoor family friendly setting in the arboretum Village of Riverside. Commemorative tasting glass is provided with each ticket price and this will be a zero waste event.

100% of the proceeds from Hop Stop go to the Olmsted Society and the Riverside Art Center, in order to help foster an ecologically and culturally sustainable future in our community.
