Join us at Hoppy Hour 2018 on Saturday, September 29th, to celebrate the release of ‘Clothing Hoptional’, an annual beer made by Wasatch Brewery with hops harvested from open space protected by the Summit Land Conservancy. Tickets are $15 ahead of time, or $20 at the door. Your entry fee will get you appetizers, 2 drink tickets, and an entry into an opportunity drawing with awesome prizes from Kuhl, Shred Optics, Ritual Chocolates, Honey Stinger, Vessel Kitchen and more! The proceeds will go to the Summit Land Conservancy and our efforts in saving land in Summit County for the benefit of people and nature.

Drink beer, save land.

Hops Hunters Hikes

Once again, the Summit Land Conservancy is teaming up with Wasatch Brewing to hunt for local hops in the Park City area! Come join the Hops Hunters as we hike along hillsides protected by the Conservancy. We will be seeking wild-growing hop binds, descendants of plants originally brought over by German miners, and discussing local history, and native and invasive species along the way.

Hikes will begin at 9:30 and will last around 2 hours. Participants should wear hiking shoes and sunscreen. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash and friendly! Make sure to bring a snack and plenty of water.

By early fall, we hope to harvest the hops with your help! (Harvest dates will be posted when we get closer to that time.) Once the hops are harvested, a limited edition open space beverage will be brewed and sold through Wasatch Brewery. A portion of the profits from the truly local brew will be given to the Conservancy to protect additional open spaces in Summit County!
