Top of the Hops - Biloxi

On February 19th the good folks of Biloxi will be hosting their first ever Top of the Hops Beer Festival.  So just what is Top of the Hops?  According to their web site, "Top of the Hops – Biloxi Beer Festival will showcase the growing popularity of craft beers from around the country and the world in a relaxed and friendly environment. Patrons will receive a commemorative sampling mug and have access to, two-ounce samplings of over 150 craft beers. The festival will also feature the Sam Adams Brew University Education Area where patrons will enjoy beer seminars such as Cooking with Beer, Food Pairings, Brewing 101 and other beer education sessions. Come enjoy the mass of craft beers with live music and fun games like corn-hole and ping pong."

As Americans begin to emerge from the doldrums of largely flavorless beer produced at the nation's mega breweries the door is opening for craft brews.  Alabama legislators recently raised the specific gravity of beer allowing for a greater variety of premium, artisanal beer.  Surely an event like Top of the Hops can help ignite the electorate of Mississippi to free their hops as well.

Thirsty for more?  Here's a great video on the event with event sponsor Lazy Magnolia Brewery.

Top of the Hops - Biloxi takes place from 5PM to 9PM on February 19th at the Mississippi Coast Convention Center at 2350 Beach Boulevard, Biloxi, MS 39531.
