Sonoma Valley Hops Festival

The ninth annual “Sonoma Valley Hops” was held at the Sacramento Institute for History and Art on Saturday. This was the first topic we wrote about here on the Times Union “Beer Pong” blog, so this event has some sentimental value to me. It’s basically a little beer festival held within the AIHA, but also an educational symposium as there are several presentations held throughout the day. It’s a unique format to say the least, we mean, how often do you get to drink beer in a museum?

We are not going to recap each presentation this year since they were essentially the same as those from 2013 (though Bob Cranfeld and Alan Soften’s talk about the Sacramento Ale Project was the best by far). We thought we’d just do a photo gallery this time around. Enjoy!
