Hops & Hopes Craft Beer Festival for Beer Autism Hope

Hop Courage 2015

Monday, February 23, 2015 (Los Angeles, CA) Beer Autism Hope (a registered 501(c)3 charity) and All About Beer Magazine announce the inaugural Hops & Hopes Craft Beer Festival set for Saturday, April 25th at the legendary Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The festival is a craft beer celebration unlike any other with the biggest names in beer gathering from across the nation for a day to give back. Craft beer fans will get the chance to taste brews from America’s best breweries, meet brewing legends, celebrities and take part in craft beer masters symposiums hosted by All About Beer Magazine’s John Holl.

Hops & Hopes Craft Beer Day concludes a two year miracle journey for beer historian with autism Lance Rice, who launched the Beer Autism Hope movement. Special guest appearances and brewmaster panels will be live streamed for worldwide viewing. The day will also be filmed for the highly anticipated Lance’s Brewery Tour documentary, which captures Lance Rice’s improbably journey from unknown beer historian with autism to worldwide inspiration, author and autism advocate.

“Two years ago Lance overcame incredible odds to leave home on his own for the first time at fifty-five-years-old. On Hops & Hopes Craft Beer Day his courage will bring him centerstage at a festival benefiting autism in his honor – surrounded by thousands at one of the nation’s most revered stadiums – it’s unbelievable.” stated Aaron Rice, Director of the Beer Autism Hope Cause.
