HenHouse Brewing Company is beyond stoked to bring back The Freshtival! On May 6, we will once again be collaborating with the Bay Area Brewers Guild and SOMO Village presenting the largest variety of brewery-fresh beer ever poured in one place!

As we all know, The Freshtival is a celebration of the art freshness! All of the beer poured at this event will be less than 7 days old!! That’s right more than 150 beers, presented in perfect, brewery-fresh condition!

One of our core beliefs at HenHouse Brewing Company is that everyone deserves to drink great beer. We know that no matter how well beer is brewed it will not be great unless it reaches the drinker in brewery-fresh condition. Time, temperature, and travel all take their toll and can render even the most delicious beers forgettable. This is why more and more breweries, HenHouse included, choose to sell their beer locally and do everything possible to ensure the quality of their beer for the end consumer.

On May 6, 2023, we will gather with dozens of like-minded brewers in celebration of this new paradigm at the SOMO Village Event Center in Sonoma County. There will be live music, delicious food, an art gallery, a community market, and of course, a bunch of delicious, brewery-fresh beer!

This non-profit event benefits the Bay Area Brewers Guild, with all proceeds going toward their work advocating for independent, local, beer manufacturing. With thanks to Visit Santa Rosa, “Freshtival Weekend” is shaping up to be an epic getaway for craft beer lovers (hotel deals & more info below), plus big thanks to The Printed ImageMorris Distributing, and Admiral Maltings and The Rake, and Brix Factory Brewing Co. for supporting and making brewers feel so welcomed.
