Mmmbop! Make that “Mmmhop.”

The second edition of The Hop Jam Craft Beer and Music Festival is slated for Sunday May 17 in Tulsa’s Brady Arts District. The festival, which features a large scale all-ages, free live concert area, and a robust craft beer festival, are focused on elevating their offering in all aspects, from beer selection to music lineup, for the second annual event.

It was also launched by Hanson. Yes, the boy band!

Free music is good. Free, good music is better. Free, good, live music is the best.

In its first year, The Hop jam claimed record attendance for a craft beer festival in Oklahoma, bringing together more than 30,000 guests, making it the largest attended craft beer event in the state, with 13 brewers present from across 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,” said event co-founder Taylor Hanson.
