Chump Change announces Seattle Fresh Hop™ Beer Festival

Seattle Fresh Hop™ — Stay fresh. Drink hoppy.™

Chump Change brings you the freshest fest this side of the hop farm. Come hang out and enjoy palate-punching brews with 1700+ eager hop heads. While you are busy having your tongue melted off, enter into raffles for your chance to win prizes from your favorite breweries in the city and donate to a number of Seattle area non-profit partners who make our city a better place. Seattle Fresh Hop™ is located in the wonderfully weird and wacky Georgetown Stables.

20+ local breweries will be gathering to show off the best of our hop harvest season. You will get the chance to help pick the most kickass beer, and help the brewers win some sweet, sweet prizes.

75% of the world’s hops are grown right in Yakima, Washington (Official town slogan: The Palm Springs of Washington). Fresh hopped beers only have 24 hours to travel from bine to brew kettle, making it a style unique to the great, green PNW. This quick turn around time is the key to making the more flavorful and exciting fresh hop beers.

Seattle Fresh Hop™ is 21+, and everybody must have valid ID on site. Yes, even granny and grandpa. We encourage even the worst of you to be on your best behavior and drink responsibly, and don’t drive. Catch a cab, a bus, a pedi cab, a pedicure, or the flu, just don’t drive. Seriously.

Freshest thing in Seattle since the Sonics left. You bet your ass it's fresh.

Stay Fresh. Drink Hoppy.™
