HOPERA: an evening of local craft beer & song
Join us for this celebration of craft beer and opera. On September 19th of this year, opera singers will entertain guests with a selection of six operatic arias, duos and trios. Each song will be accompanied by a sample of local craft beer. Pairings will be presented with details on the musical selection and the beer style as well as why they were chosen. Hopera is an intimate event and will provide meaningful insight into both the world of local craft beer and the world of opera...
