For our very first Hop'Up event we will be joined by the guys from Loch Ness Brewery for a special 'Meet the Brewer' session with a few special spooky surprises! They will be bringing along a selection of their great beers for you all to try and you will get to learn more about their brewery in Drumnadrochit and their brewing processes, as well an insight into each of their beers you try. As this event falls on Halloween fancy dress is optional but we will have a special beery prize for the best dressed so get creative, the hoppier the better!
