The Lowdown Event: HopFest 2013 When: Friday August 30 Where: The Irish Village, Garhoud
With sawdust on the floor and music provided by The MapleJacks, who rocked classic covers ranging from REM’s ‘Losing My Religion’ to The Beatles’ ‘Helter Skelter’, revellers were in good spirits for this celebration of all things hop. With over 100 different varieties on offer, visitors were given the opportunity to sample drinks from across the globe, covering Belgian, Germany, Australia, Asia and more. With the event taking place in a giant air conditioned tent, there was an intimate and friendly atmosphere which became increasingly energetic as the evening wore on.
