Riverside Foods and the Olmsted Society are once again partnering to bring you the Hop Stop craft beer festival. Sample offerings from micro-local craft brewers such as Brickstone, Pipeworks, BuckleDown, Citizen Cider, Flapjack Brewing, Forbidden Root, Goose Island, Noon Whistle Brewing, Pollyanna Brewing, Right Bee Cider, Safehouse Brewing, Spiteful Brewing, Whiner Brewing, Hailstorm Brewing, and Riverside’s own Quincy Street Distilling, among others, Saturday, September 30, 2017, 4 to 7 pm at the Riverside Train Station, Riverside, IL. The Metra drops you at the door. Food from Sawmilly (food available for purchase), and the live music of HopsLager and Dr. Don and the Boogie Monsters round out a wonderful outdoor family friendly setting in the arboretum Village of Riverside. The Riverside Arts Center (RAC) will provide art classes at their nearby facility for kids aged 5 and above complimentary with the price of admission. See www.riversideartscenter.com for details. Commemorative tasting glass is provided with each $35 ticket price and this will be a zero waste event.

100% of the proceeds from the event go to the Olmsted Society in preserving and promoting Frederick Law Olmsted’s vision and fostering a sustainable future. See www.olmstedsociety.org for more information on this nearly 50 year old non-profit organization and its good works.
