There's going to be a massive three day hop festival in Dubai this weekend
After months of waiting, The Irish Village’s HopFest is back for its 14th edition and this time it has even more brew flavours on offer.
No, really. The festival that takes place from July 26 to July 29 will have over 100 hop brands to try – think of it as a way of tasting the delicious brewed flavours that the world has to offer under one, air-conditioned roof.
There will be entertainment, too. Local band and long time favourites The Maplejacks will be making an appearance as will Roadie and Fixer. While DJ Marky Mark will be on hand to keep the party going until the early hours.
The kitchen will be operating as per usual so be sure to pair your hop or hops of choice with a portion of the venue’s hearty dishes that includes the likes of Irish stew, fish and chips and an incredibly tasty platter of barbeque chicken wings – you will definitely be ordering seconds, maybe even thirds (you will probably order thirds, just saying).
On to topic of money. There’s a three drinks minimum policy which is priced at AED135. There’s a doubles package on offer, too. For AED400, you and a mate can split 10 drinks amongst yourself. Not bad.
