Women On Tap Announces Summer Hop: A One-Day Festival Celebrating Women in Beer

Women On Tap CIC is thrilled to announce the Summer Hop festival, a one-day event presented in partnership with Roosters Taproom and sponsored by Barthhaas. Taking place on 4th July 2024 in Harrogate, Summer Hop offers a condensed yet impactful experience designed to empower, packed with insights and the camaraderie of the beer community.

In lieu of the multi-day May festival, Women On Tap CIC is unveiling a year-round program of events, collaborations, and activism projects. Summer Hop aims to embody the spirit of WOTFEST over the past seven years, packed into a few hours of inspiration and connection.

The festival will commence with an industry-focused segment featuring prominent speakers who are activists, leaders, and experts in the beer industry. Attendees can expect talks, panels, a guided tasting and social, where everyone, regardless of gender, is invited to participate and engage.

Rachel Auty, founder of Women On Tap CIC, expresses excitement about the lineup of speakers and the opportunity to create a sustainable future for the organisation. “We’re bringing together incredible voices that will undoubtedly inspire and educate,” says Auty. “Summer Hop is our way of offering a taste of WOTFEST while we pause the main annual festival to focus on long-term sustainability for the social enterprise.”
