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

Nine breweries are joining the fun this year: Aldus Brewing Co., Columbia Kettleworks, Cox Brewing Co., Gift Horse Brewing Co., Lancaster Brewing, Lancaster Homebrew, Liquid Hero Brewery, Mad Chef Craft Brewing and Wacker Brewing Co. And what’s beer without something to go with it? Vendors providing tasty samples to complement the beer will include Loxley’s Restaurant, Union Station Grill, Half Nuts Popcorn, Hinkle’s, the Original Pickle Co., Baum’s Bologna, Isaac’s Restaurant and Deli, Bully’s, Dam Good Snacks 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 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 a chance to win a door prize! Proceeds benefit the National Watch & Clock Museum, Library & Research Center.

Tickets go on sale Friday, June 1, at 10 a.m. To order tickets visit www.museumoftime.org or call 717.684.8261, ext. 211.
