Bellingham Hoptoberfest


We invite you to join us at the First Annual Bellingham Hoptoberfest, a fantastic beer tasting and judging experience. We are excited to create a premium beer tasting and beer judging event high-lighting the best in craft beer. Hoptoberfest will be held INDOORS at the Bellingham Sportsplex Ice & Indoor Soccer Arena, providing a great venue with 37,000 square feet of indoor space, so regardless of the weather it will be perfect for the event. Our guests will have plenty of room to spread out and socialize while sampling the finest craft brews. In addition to the fine micro brews of the Northwest, Sunset Superman will be playing some great live music during the event with a great variety of food from Pizza'zza, Outlaws Saloon BBQ, Wandering Dog, and El Agave providing some tasty offerings. We will be organizing qualified beer experts who will be judging to provide awards to the best in several categories. We will also be establishing a mechanism for people’s choice awards as well. Proceeds benefit three Whatcom County non-profits: ReBound of Whatcom County, Boys & Girls Clubs of Whatcom County and Whatcom Sports & Recreation. These three non-profit organizations all are active in making a positive impact in the lives of Whatcom County Youth through their extensive programming and first class facilities.
