It's Beer Festival Season and first up is the 2nd Annual Top of the Hops Beer Festival at The Wharf in Orange Beach Alabama (an hour from Pensacola) on Saturday, August 10th from 4pm to 8pm.

Sponsored by Abita Beer, attendees will have the chance to sample over 150 world-class beers from around the world including several not available in Florida (Fairhope Brewing, Good People Brewing, Tallgrass Brewing).

General admission tickets are $34.99 in advance and include a souvenir 2-Ounce mug for unlimited sampling, music by Ryan Balthrop and Friends, as well as access to the Samuel Adams Brew University Tent with Seminars including Cooking with Beer, Brewing 101, and Pairing Beer with Food.

Top of the Hops at the Wharf is an outside festival, but if the weather turns rainy, as it did last year, the event will move inside.
