GTech’s Wethoptober at Wigle Barrelhouse

Enjoy fresh-hopped libations, good conversation, autumnal treats and great music at the Wethoptober Fundraiser. 6-9 p.m.

In 2013, GTECH set out to grow hops on an unused, vacant portion of Garfield Community Farm to see whether it could be a creative (and delicious) way to reuse some of the 4,500 acres of vacant land in the city. With the help of Noah of the Hop Project and the fine farmers of Garfield Farm, we planted to grow a few varieties of hops for East End Brewery and — guess what — it worked! Inspired by the Hops on Lots project, GTECH throws the annual Wethoptober Fundraiser to celebrate and support our projects that creatively reuse vacant lots. This year we’re partnering with Wigle Whiskey and East End Brewery to offer an evening of wet-hopped brews and hopped whiskey, tasty food and great conversation at Wigle Whiskey Barrel House located in the Northside neighborhood of Spring Garden.
