Hoppy Possum: Southern Brewers Cup

September 24, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Amateur brewers from across the nation compete for $10,000 

at 3rd Annual “Hoppy Possum: Southern Brewers Cup” beer festival


JOHNSON CITY, TN – The 3rd Annual Hoppy Possum: Southern Brewers Cup is taking  place September 24th at TVA Credit Union Ballpark in Johnson City, TN. The mission of Hoppy Possum is to showcase homebrew culture and creativity to craft beer lovers from near and far. Festival attendees will experience a new hybrid festival format that keeps the best aspects of a craft beer festival (fancy tasting glasses, unlimited tastings, great music, and unique food trucks) and combines it with a home brew competition. 


The best homebrewers from across the nation will descend upon Northeast Tennessee to compete for $10,000 in cash prizes. It costs nothing  for brewers to compete except their time and their beer. Attendees will pay a fee at the gate and enjoy unlimited tastings and festival activities all afternoon. Festival goers are encouraged to vote for the offerings they like best, the top 5  beer entries and the top 3 non-beer (cider, mead, etc.) will move on to a final judging panel. 


“Hoppy Possum is a place beer lovers are going to find new, exciting, experimental, and creative craft beer” said festival director, Gavin Andrews, “we have brewers coming in from across the US bringing their interpretations of your favorite styles” The “people’s choice” format ensures brewers will offer particularly exciting and experimental creations in an effort to stand out among the expected 175 different beers, ciders, meads, and seltzers, and kombucha.  


Hoppy Possum: Southern Brewers Cup will take place September 24th, 2022. VIP entry begins at 1:00PM. General admission opens at 2:00PM. Musical acts include Asheville based psychedelic rock band “The Snozzberries”, surf rock band “The Future 26’s” “DJ RCA”, and “Shuffler Sound System” and a variety of food and merchandise vendors will be on site as well. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online.
