Hops in the Hangar is a unique, craft beer tasting event and air show that will surely take flight!

Gathering a blend of craft beer fans and aviation enthusiasts in an airplane hangar, Hops in the Hangar is the EPIC craft beer event in the tri-state area.

Talk about unique ambiance! A beer event at an operating airport. Hops in the Hangar will feature a wide selection of beer from breweries big and small and showcases a variety of aircraft. The professional skydivers jumping overhead will create an experience few will forget. The evening will be packed with beers, planes, food trucks, music and more.

Sample 4oz pours of great craft beer from 30 breweries with over 90 beers to choose from. All attendees must be 21 years of age or older. There will be Food Trucks on site offering a variety of tasty options for purchase. Mingle around historic, vintage and modern aircraft and take some awesome photos. Be prepared to see an Air Show, Skydivers jumping overhead, and more (weather permitting). And if Mother Nature cooperates, one of the most incredible sunsets you'll see. If that isn't a great evening already, we top it off with a spectacular pyrotechnics jump by our very own hometown skydiving team, Team Fastrax!

Craft beer, great food, music and fun - all in a wide-open setting of an airplane hangar. The unique location allows for outdoor enjoyment inside the hangar with the doors wide open providing cover for shade and weather. This event is rain or shine....but has a 100% chance of beer and fun.
