THE INAUGURAL HOPS IN THE HILLS WILL BE A YEARLY CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL CELEBRATING THE SCIENCE AND AGRICULTURE OF THE REGION.
From the bine to the glass . . . as part of this celebration, we will be hosting two seminars. The Hops seminar will launch a conversation into the agriculture involved in artisan brewing. Along with a discussion of the art of crafting a fine brew, the Craft Beer 101 seminar will introduce you to some of the best brewers and specialists in the area.
Hops in The Hills is the anchor event to Summer on Broadway, which will include The Big BBQ Bash*, Last Friday Art Walk, Maryville Farmers Market, and many other activities.
*The Big BBQ Bash is a Kansas City Barbecue Society competition. KCBS sanctions barbecue and grilling competitions across the U.S., promoting barbecue as "America's cuisine." In addition, KCBS, the largest organization of barbecue and grilling enthusiasts with more than 15,000 members worldwide, has an extensive Certified Barbecue Judging program.
