In its inaugural year, Hops On The Mon Craft Beer & Food Festival aims to elevate the standard in beer. Each brewery will be carefully selected with only you in mind. We at Top Tier Beer Group want you to have the best beer experience in tasting not just what West Virginia has to offer but the rest of the United States and the world!

Decisions are still being made and beers tasted, but here is a short teaser list to get those tastebuds tingling! 


No large event operates well without committed and hard-working volunteers and Hops on the Mon is no different. We’re seeking special people with an interest or passion for craft beer and food to join our team and help us stage a successful event. As a volunteer, you’ll work a four-hour shift on Friday, September 22, or Saturday, September 23. In return, you’ll receive free admission to the event, a free event t-shirt, and the opportunity to attend a special volunteers-only party complete with food and drinks. Plus, you’ll have some fun! So, simply click the link to volunteer for Hops on the Mon today.
