FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why Hops Crossing?
The idea began during a game of cornhole on a sunny Sunday afternoon, during a brewery festival in Calgary. While tossing a bean bag across a parking lot, with a pint in one hand debating where the next stop was, it was realized that Edmonton needed something like this. We had the breweries. We had the brewing district that was rapidly forming in the light industrial area south east of downtown. So why shouldn’t something be done to bring them all together and encourage people to not visit just one, but all of them?
Calgary calls their collection of breweries the Barley Belt. Vancouver has affectionately named their brewing district Yeast Van. And now Edmonton has Hops Crossing. The name pays homage to one of the fundamental ingredients in the brewing process and the collection of rail road crossings that torment drivers all throughout south east Edmonton. Hops Crossing is a place and an idea, but ultimately the goal is to bring people together to drink great, local beer.
Cheers, and welcome to Hops Crossing.
