Hops and Props 2014

The EAA’s annual Hops and Props beer tasting is coming Saturday, March 8 from 7-10 p.m. If you were planning on attending you’ll want to get moving on that ticket purchase. The VIP dinner is sold out, but tickets for the general tasting still remain.

This isn’t a cheap date. Tickets for the tasting are a hefty $75 if you’re not an EAA member. Compare that to the $50 ticket of something like the Great Taste of the Midwest, probably the premier beer tasting in Wisconsin, and you might wonder if it’s worth it. I guess that depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re strictly about the beer, that $75 price tag might cause you to pause. The beer line-up is above average, but most of what you’ll find there you’ll have seen before. Hops and Props does come with a couple amenities, though, that make it distinct.

The ticket includes music from four different bands, a large buffet of snacks – this year provided by the Machine Shed of Appleton – and it gets you into the AirVenture Museum, which charges a $12.50 admission any other day. It’s that museum atmosphere that sets Hops and Props apart. Drinking good beer among all that incredible machinery is a unique experience.

Here’s a set of links to all the vital info:
