Lost Coast Fresh Hop Festival

Gyppo Ale Mill

Gyppo Ale Mill is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the long-awaited second annual Lost Coast Fresh Hop Fest in beautiful Shelter Cove, California on October 14th, 2023. We will be joined by It’s Alive Kombucha, Seaquake Brewing, Port O’Pints Brewing, Humboldt Cider Company, North Spur, Blue Lake Rancheria, Mad River Brewery, and 6 Rivers Brewery.

There are aromas and flavors in freshly harvested hop flowers that cannot be found even so much as a day or two after they are picked. Gyppo’s Head Brewer, Jared Smith, along with some of the other brewers and KMUD’s Lauren Schmitt will be arriving at Alexander Valley Hops on harvest day, gathering fresh Chinook hops and delivering to the participating breweries THE SAME DAY so as to maximize their effect. The breweries will then each brew up their own “fresh hop” beverage that they are excited to debut and share with all of you exclusively at The Lost Coast Fresh Hop Fest. This is a chance for us all to come together and celebrate what we love not only about craft beverages, but the bounty of the summer growing season and all that it provides us.

The Fresh Hop Fest will go from 2:00 - 8:00 p.m. and will feature fresh hop brews from these nine breweries, live music, gourmet food vendors, local vendors, lounge areas to kick back with your friends, and of course Gyppo’s delicious local and seasonal food. In the Gyppo vibe, this fest is family friendly and there will be activities for the kiddos. A fun event for everyone!

Gyppo aims to give back to the community that we all love and support, which makes KMUD an obvious choice to be the non-profit that will receive a percentage of proceeds collected from the event. KMUD has been keeping the community entertained and informed for nearly 4 decades. We are so thankful for everything they do!

We are looking for sponsors whose vision aligns with ours of continuing to make our community stronger than ever by giving back to those in need. There are five levels of sponsorship. They will all benefit your business from extended exposure through media campaigns, promotional efforts directed toward your targeted demographic, and event advertising. This is a great opportunity to advertise your business! You will be advertising to a health-conscious, eco-conscious, community-minded, family-oriented audience who prefers to spend their money at local businesses.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have. Your donation is tax-deductible and we will send you a receipt. Please return your sponsorship commitment and check in the enclosed envelope. Thank you in advance for your willingness to support KMUD and make a difference in our community.
