Hop Summer Fest, the Craft Beer Festival is back

Seven years after the first edition of the Hop Summer Fest, it returns to the charming setting of the old district of La Venezia, on the Scali delle Ancore, the Livorno festival dedicated to craft beer.

The event will take place inside and outside the Bad Elf Pub, along the Medici canals with a view of the Old Fortress and the sunset.

8 Italian craft breweries and 2 British guests will be present: each will have their own stand, where you can speak directly with the producers and be guided through the many tasting options. The Bad Elf Pub kitchen will be available with a menu specially designed for the occasion: snacks and international dishes will be served at the table, and guests can choose between British specialties, German dishes, and Tex-Mex. Additionally, each evening will feature guests from the world of beer and food, with meetings and workshops.

This year, the Hop Summer Fest will use special eco-friendly reusable material glasses, with a structure similar to glass.
