Those thirst-quenching brothers Hanson will hold their second annual Hop Jam Craft Beer and Music Festival May 17 in Tulsa, Okla., promising more beer and, well, more beer. Hanson tops an all-ages concert lineup that also includes The Polyphonic Spree, Black Joe Lewis, Jamestown Revival and Horse Thief.
Tulsa’s Brady Artist District is where you’ll find more than 30 brewers displaying their best brews. Along with boutique breweries, the festival will host national and international brands.
Hop Jam founders Hanson Brothers Beer are once again partnering with McNellie’s Group for the event. Of course, Hanson’s own Mmmhops pale ale is sure to be available. Other breweries making the party include Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales from Anchorage, Mich., California’s Lagunitas and Brewery Ommegang from New York. Japan’s Baird Beer, Ben Middlemiss Brewing from New Zealand and Denmark’s Mikkeller are among the international brewers. Oklahoma brewers include Anthem Brewing, Black Mesa Brewing and Dead Armadillo Craft Brewing.
The festival helps support The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.
“We were blown away by the response to the first Hop Jam, but there was a clear message from many guests – more beer!! We’ve set out to make sure there is not only more beer but a little more of everything from music to food, and a fun environment for everyone that joins us,” Taylor Hanson said.
