BEST. #HOPCON. EVER.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 2015
Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station
2816 Historic Decatur Rd #116, San Diego, CA 92106 [map]
Our annual celebration of nth-degree beer geekery is back for a third round. Join us for a release party large enough to match this year’s Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout.
Hop-Con isn’t about awkward handshakes, high-fives, selfies and autographs – just general and rampant merriment and geeky celebration full of great food and awesome craft beer.

Unlimited plays and IPAs!
New for 2015, an additional 10,000-square-foot outdoor arcade
We’re taking the giant plot behind building 12 (aka the garden bar) and turning it into the HOP-CADE! We’ll have only IPAs on tap, oversized lawn games, pinball machines, vintage arcade games and a Skee-ball machine. Not enough? How about an a used beer barrel converted into a vintage arcade console with a 25 foot screen? Seriously. This last feat will be created by our friend Hunter Bond, Troll Slayer and resident Pinball Mechanic at J!NX, with custom metal routing by San Diego’s reproHAUS.
