Mark your calendar for the Fordham and Dominion Brewing Co. 5th annual R2Hop2 beer and music festival on Saturday, April 23. The festival will be held from noon to 5 p.m. and will feature a full day of live music with performances by Pasadena, BarrelHouse and The Casey Alvarez Band.
Throughout the day, there will be firkin tappings, wine from Harvest Ridge Winery and spirits from Painted Stave Distilling Company. Food vendors include Babci’s Potato Pancakes, 5K BBQ, 33West Ale House & Grill, Tre Sorelle Dolce, PigHeaded BBQ and Big Thunder Food Truck.
“We took a slightly different approach to R2Hop2 this year, choosing to focus on pulling in the small businesses that Kent County has to offer,” says Jim Lutz, president and CEO of Fordham and Dominion. “Our goal with this festival is to bring the community together for one day for some great beer and great music.”
Anyone who purchases a ticket prior to April 1 will be entered to win the special R2Hop2 package put together by Mainstay Suites. The package includes one-night’s stay at the hotel and passes to all of the other Good Libations Tour locations. All and all, it’s worth up to $150.
