Salmon-Safe IPA Festival is coming up on August 25!

Posted on July 25, 2018

Join us at our flagship brewery on August 25th for the Salmon–Safe IPA festival! This inaugural event asks 20+ breweries to make beer with Salmon-Safe certified hops and malt. These beer ingredients come from farms committed to protecting clean water and biodiversity in Northwest agricultural watersheds, which are essential for native fish populations.

The Salmon-Safe IPA Festival will be divided into two sessions. Session #1 is an all-ages session that runs from 12-4 pm, and Session #2 is 21+ and runs from 5-9 pm. Each ticket package costs $25 and comes with 10 drink tickets, an order of HUB’s world-famous pretzels, a HUB 10th anniversary chalice and a raffle ticket for prizes from various Salmon-Safe certified businesses. Each session has only 400 tickets available and the event is expected to sell out. In between session, we are hosting panel discussions with Salmon-Safe industry leaders. All proceeds from this event benefit the environmental nonprofit Salmon-Safe.
