North Hop

Hurry up #northhopabz!

Tuesday 11th April 2017

With just over a week until the North Hop Aberdeen festival at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, we asked some of the breweries, bars and street food vendors what they are most looking forward to... here's what they had to say!

If you haven't got them already, don't miss the chance and buy your tickets here!

Hannah Flood-Mallinson, LoneWolf Spirits
Having only just launched LoneWolf spirits on the 8th of April we’re looking forward to bringing our gin and vodka, as well as the one off North Hop Festival gin, to the people of our hometown for the first time. What better place to start our LoneWolf journey?

Ethan Forbes, Poco Prosecco
We love seeing everyone’s face light up when they see our very cute ‘Little Italian Prosecco Van’ and realize they can get fizz on tap! North Hop creates such a fantastic environment with great music, food and drinks options and we love having the opportunity to interact with all the festival goers and traders.

Richard, James and Owen, Out of Town Brewing
We cannot wait for North Hop Aberdeen. It's been an exciting date in our diary since we launched the brewery late last year - we were very keen to attend after enjoying North Hop Glasgow last year. Our main priority was making sure we had enough beer, and the beer was good. We've brewed two completely new IPAs especially for it, and we cannot wait for you to try them. They're some of the best beers we've brewed. And you never know, there might be none left afterwards. See you there!

Martin Farmer, Orchid and Porter’s Gin
Looking forward to chatting gin and cocktails with anyone who wants to listen, we have bottled cocktails and a loaded slushy machine to help water the masses. So roll on Friday 14th April!"

Calum Richardson, The Bay on the Road and The Bay Fish & Chips
North Hop 2016 was a tremendous success so there was no question about whether we’d like to return or not. As well as using it as an opportunity to showcase our recently award-winning Bay Fishcakes, I’m very much looking forward to meeting new businesses from Aberdeen’s vibrant food and drink scene and working together as a team to make sure it’s a brilliant weekend for all involved. Come rain or shine, North Hop 2017 is going to be a cracker!

Mechelle Clark, Melt
This is the first year that Melt have been at North Hop so I’m really excited about being part of such an established festival, amongst some local food hero’s and friends. I’ve been to North Hop a few times and always thought it stood out amongst the other beer festivals in the area, great food, great music and a cheeky gin for those like me who aren’t big fans of beer.

See you there Aberdeen! #northhopabz
