What normally has been held during the month of February, McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery & Public House will host its 29th Annual Hillsdale Brewfest on Saturday, June 25, 2022.
Also known as the Battle for the Belt, the annual Hillsdale Brewfest pits each McMenamins brewery against one another in this fan choice beer festival. This year the Hillsdale Brewfest comes in a new form as it spills across the parking lot with 20 taps and official glasses for tasting. Yep, there’s no two taster tray options for sampling all of the beers this year. Votes will be placed, hearts will be won, the competition will be fierce, and one brewer will walk away with the prize for the best.
This year’s Hillsdale Brewfest will also share the day with Barley Mill’s Birthday. Attend both celebrations and collect 2-part stamp; earn half at Barley Mill Pub’s Birthday celebration and half at Hillsdale Brewfest.
Plus, for this special, rare occasion, McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery & Public House has brewed Bold Deceiver IPA to honor both celebrations. Bold Deceiver IPA is brewed with Mosaic and HBC 586 Hops that delivers a tropical, smooth IPA that won’t double-cross you with bitterness. Citrus notes wack you in the nostrils as you fall nose first into this ceremonial IPA.
The 29th Annual Hillsdale Brewfest will take place on Saturday, June 25, 2022 from 11:00am – 8:00pm. Tickets are $25 and includes a Hillsdale Brewfest glass and 10 tokens. All ages are welcome. Advance tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
With your tokens, you can order sample or full size beers throughout the parking lot. Tokens can also be used to purchase food at the festival.
