The Bellingham Sportsplex has been a staple for families raising kids in Bellingham for years. Offering soccer training, league opportunities, skating and hockey, the Sportsplex can be found full of kids pursuing potential passions and making the most of the community-minded space offered.
Come Saturday, October 21 however, you won’t find any kids on the indoor field at the Sportsplex. Instead, it will be full of their parents and community members pursuing a passion of their own– craft beer.
25 different breweries will be pouring for hundreds of Bellingham beer fanatics at the 2nd annual Hoptoberfest, benefitting the Sportsplex as well as Rebound Families, a social services organization benefitting families recovering from traumatic situations.
You heard me right… drinking beer for a really good cause? Seems too good to be true. For just $15, you’ll receive 5 tickets for samples from local breweries, ranging from Bellingham to Seattle. VIP attendees will receive extra tickets, a private seating area, as well as a private hour to taste beer from 5-6 pm for just $30 dollars.
The general admission event, sponsored by Yelp, is from 6-10 pm and will feature not only the brewers, but food trucks and lawn games, including everyone’s beer garden favorite, cornhole.
