"Measure for measure"

Welcome to the October beer festival. With the end of the summer upon us and the autumn leaf fall in full swing there’s a bigger focus on the darker, warming, seasonal beers, from the traditional winter ales and stouts to the more modern red rye style.

There are still a few hop bombs and a couple of breweries new to The Hope for you to try. Enjoy and wrap up warm!
