Hops and Herons Beer Festival

Enjoy unlimited beer samples from local breweries along with live music and food trucks in CNP's scenic Henderson Meadow!

Conestee Nature Preserve's 3rd annual Hops & Herons Beer Festival will feature over 15 local breweries, along with food trucks, live music, and family-friendly fun in an unrivaled setting. Come experience a beer festival in a location like no other, inside their Nature Preserve on a hilltop meadow, shaded by giant oak trees!

You'll be able to sample over 20 different beers plus a cider or two (in a custom Hops & Herons glass) from some of the best breweries in South Carolina, while listening to live music from Ben Prestage. Food will be available for purchase onsite from the food trucks Everything Eggroll, One Eyed Donkey (vegan and vegetarian options!), Simpell Sammies, and Kiss My Asada.

This event is dog friendly and family friendly, and fun outdoor activities will be provided for all ages! Kids will be entertained by face painters, a corn pit, giant bubbles and other games. New this year will be a Dog-Zone, sponsored by The Dapper Dog Bark Bar, to keep your furry friends as entertained as you!

The unique setting of Hops and Herons, surrounded by nature in the heart of Conestee Nature Preserve, makes for an unrivaled experience you won’t want to miss. And all proceeds support the work of their nonprofit organization!
