The Annual HOPS! Oktoberfest Party will take place on September 23, 2023 in the Bridgeport VFW Beer Garden and Hall located at 3202 S. May Street in the Bridgeport Neighborhood. Dozens of different craft and homebrew beers are expected and a complimentary meal will be served, including grilled meats, sausages, side dishes and desserts..

All attendees must be 21 years of age. No pets. No children

There will be HOPS! members around, including many with BJCP expertise, who will give beer advice, brewing knowledge, style critique and let you know how you can become a member of one of Chicago's oldest homebrew clubs that's been fermenting since 1995.

Buy tickets!

Event lasts from 2pm to 6pm.
