HOPS ’n’ CLOCKS
With more beer and food than ever before!

COLUMBIA, PA: It’s time to sip on some hops and check out the clocks! The National Watch and Clock Museum will hold its eighth annual beer-tasting event, Hops ’n’ Clocks, on Friday, July 10, from 6 to 9 p.m. Come sample local brews and the area’s fine food, enjoy live music, and maybe even walk away with a door prize!

Three new breweries are joining the fun this year: Gift Horse Brewing, Roy Pitz Brewing, and Wacker Brewing, along with Bailees’s Homebrew & Wine Supplies. Returning breweries include Lancaster Brewing, Liquid Hero Brewery, Troegs Brewing, Columbia Kettleworks,J & J Miracle Mead, and Wyndridge Farm with its crafty hard cider. And what’s beer without something to go with it? Providing tasty samples to complement the beer will be two new caterers to Hops ’n’ Clocks: Hurricane Pizza and Annie Bailey’s Irish Pub & Restaurant. Those returning include Union Station Grill, Half Nuts Popcorn, Hinkle’s, the Original Pickle Co., Baum’s Bologna, Isaac’s Restaurant and Deli, Prudhomme’s Lost Cajun Kitchen, Bully’s, Burning Bridge Tavern, and the Wrightsville Inn. For designated drivers or those just looking for an alternative, Turkey Hill also will provide plenty of nonalcoholic drinks!

Live music by the energetic and popular Irish group Fire in the Glen returns with a rollicking selection of traditional music from Ireland, Scotland, and the Canadian Maritimes, including blistering fiddle tunes, mug-thumping pub songs, and soulful airs and touching ballads … and some unusual twists as well!

“The People’s Choice” will be awarded at the conclusion of the evening after everyone has visited all the breweries and restaurants and voted by ballot for his or her favorite!

A limited number of tickets will be sold. Tickets are $30 and $15 for designated drivers. Attendees must be 21 or older and IDs will be checked at the door. The ticket price includes beer tasting, food sampling, a commemorative glass, Museum admission, live music, and even a chance to win a door prize!
