Aw, go with it. This weekend marks the 2nd Annual Hopscotch Spring Beer & Scotch Festival ...now, with tequila! Over 50 beers, along with an optional scotch and tequila tasting, make for one great weekend. A little peek at what you can expect...
Kona's Wailua Wheat is a lip smacking surprise, and don't miss the Lagunitas Lucky 13 (14, actually) or the Dogfish Head Aprihop. And if you haven't tried the Lazy Boy Porter yet, add it to your dance card here. I'm gunning for the Laughing Buddha Beers, one of which uses Pandan leaves. There will also be a taste of the second annual Reunion beer, an organic Red Rye whose proceeds go toward Myeloma and Bone Cancer research (more on the cause HERE). All in all, the line up is quite varied.
The tequila tasting may not fit in with the name, but six tasters totaling a snifter's worth of top shelf agave for $15 bucks extra is a cheap way to try high end tequila (including the 1942 Don Julio). The Scotch tasting is $10, and for a mere $30, you can plug into a scotch tasting seminar with a Master of Scotch, and 11-1/4 tastings of some really amazing stuff. Never got scotch? Oh you will after that little class. I did the class last year, and I can vouch for the selection and the easy way in which the information is imparted by the Master.
