Registration includes hors d'oeuvres courtesy of Twisted Eats by Kre8 and a few samples from the taproom's 12 wine taps and 50 beer taps.

    Our guest speaker and Hoppin' co-owner, Rich Moyer, will briefly hit on key points, including challenges associated with differentiation in a crowded industry, the taproom's marketing strategy, and what led Rich to the industry following a career in A/E/C.
