Warm summer nights, good music, friendly conversation, and local craft beer – what else could you ask for from an evening in the East Tennessee Mountains? Our Hops in the Hills brew festival isn’t just another regional beer fest; it’s an event planned with both patron and brewer experience in mind.


Only 1000 tickets are sold for this event, keeping lines short and giving brewers opportunity to discuss brewing processes and product distinctions with an engaged crowd. And don’t worry about spending additional money on top of your ticket price, because each ticket also gets you an official event t-shirt, sunglasses, a tasting glass, and free food from local vendor.


Are you an IPA guy or a Porter gal? Have you always wondered how a grapefruit Saison tastes? Spend the evening sampling a wide variety of drafts from over 25 regional breweries, with the incredible sounds of the Knoxville band, Teen Spirit, keeping energy high.


For those of you with a competitive streak, we offer games like life-size beer pong and Jenga or you can challenge your friends to a neighborly game of cornhole. Located in the Maryville Greenway Amphitheater, this Celebration of Fermentation is a can’t miss opportunity!


Join us from 5:00 – 9:00 pm on Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 for a tasting experience you won’t forget! Tickets can be purchased online at www.hopsinthehills.com for $55 per person or $65 per person if purchased the day of the event.


Don’t just come for the evening; join us for the whole weekend. Friday night start your experience with our Hops in the Hills Craft Brew Crawl & Poker Run, provided by Knox Brew Tours. Purchase tickets for $15 per person. The night will begin at The Public House on High (this is where you will get on the bus, receive your wristband and poker card) and buses will run continuously throughout the night, from 6:00 – 10:00 pm, allowing you to stay as long as you like at each stop.


As a part of the weekend-long Summer on the Broadway celebration, Hops joins other exciting festivities such as a sanctioned BBQ Cookoff, Farmer’s Market and Craft Fair, Car Show, Dock Dogs, Kid’s Zone, and The Cleverlys downtown, along with the outdoor movie screening of “Spider-Man Homecoming’. Whether you want to start your adventure with a hike, see the area on horseback, or take an invigorating float down the river, we have it in the Peaceful Side of the Smokies. Local accommodations are ready to welcome you with southern hospitality and charm, so get your tickets and book your rooms today!
