We thought the logo of the Hop Jam was pretty nifty when we first saw it: a hop with a guitar neck sticking out of the top. A hop guitar for the Hop Jam beer and music festival.
Well, now it’s a real, physical thing. And one person will win it this weekend.
“It’s literally music and beer collided,” Taylor Hanson told us recently.
The guitar will be signed by all of the performers at the inaugural music and beer festival, set for Sunday in the Brady Arts District. It also will be signed by the brewers.
Raffle tickets will be sold at the festival and a winner chosen. Money collected from the sale of raffle tickets will be donated to Iron Gate and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.
Hanson said that his brother and fellow band member, Isaac, has been designing guitars and with others put this one together.
“Made the guitar exactly to the specs of the guitar logo,” Taylor Hanson said. “That item is such a unique element of the festival it’s something we can get excited about.”
Tickets will be available for sale at the festival.
Taylor Hanson said the festival is encouraging attendees to bring nonperishable food items to donate at the gate.
“Since it’s a free event, we’d like to encourage people to bring a few nonperishable foods to donate to show some support for that cause,” Taylor Hanson said.
