As you’ll probably have guessed, we’re going to have to pull back on plans for Hagstravaganza this July. We’ve held out as long we can, but it appears that despite a huge national commitment and lots of progress across the country, we won’t be in a position to hold large scale events until mid August. It’s heartbreaking, but not as important as maintaining our health. All tickets will be refunded in the next two weeks. All is not lost, however…
While we cant physically hold the festival, we’ve been inundated with requests to keep the festival alive in a virtual manner, so we’re going to turn HAGSTRAVAGANZA into BOXTRAVAGANZA for one year only!
We are going to create a special festival box, available to beer fans throughout Ireland who had already purchased tickets or attended previously. The box will feature a special beer from each brewery who had been invited, and of course our own Hopstravaganza festival beer. On the day of the festival, we’ll be bringing each brewery online to feature in our ‘live unboxing’ to meet our fans, and give a quick intro to the beer. We’ll also have music, comedy, shouting and a very special recreation of the festival train!
We would LOVE if you can still be part of the festival – all we need is for you to register your interest HERE and we’ll mail you the box details when they are ready.
In the meantime, please keep 23rd and 24th July free in your calendars for 2021 😉
Thanks for your patience and we hope we are helping you through the crisis as much as you are helping us 🙂
