Monte's Farewell Bash at The Good Hop

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our buddy Monte and the Cano family. The Cano's are heading off to a new adventure and will be moving to Chico, California. We wish them the best, but we will definitely miss them!

We figure it's only right to send them out with bang...and maybe some beer. And tacos.

Join us Wednesday, January 31st from 6pm - 10pm to say farewell to the one and only Monte! We'll have beers of course, and Tacos el Precioso will be poppin' up with some kick-ass tacos. 

See you there!

SFBW 2018: SoCal Sour Sunday & Cheese Pairing

SoCal Sour Sunday is back for the 2nd year in a row! One of our most popular SFBW events at The Good Hop, this event is exactly what it sounds like: ALL SOURS, ALL DAY LONG. Our 16 taps will be taken over by some of the yummiest sours to step foot out of SoCal. 

This year we are adding curated cheese pairings to the list, because everyone knows that good cheese and sour beer are a delightful combination. Our very own bartender and house cheesemonger Paul Klevan will be selecting the cheeses and suggesting irresistible pairings that bring out the funk and play up the flavors of both the cheeses and the beer.

Look for the brewers/crew themselves, who will be trekkin' up North to hang out with us that afternoon and evening between 4pm and 9pm.

Our staff will discuss the style characteristics, variations, and flavor profiles of each beer, and encourage discussion and a little bit of fun.

**This is a ticketed event and space is limited!** Tickets are $20 each and include FIVE 5oz pours of beer. Get your tickets HERE.
