Hey y'all - some breaking, sad, and yet great news. We will be moving the first Liquid Hops Bash to 2023. The decision was not taken light-heartedly and is the result of many discussions among the whole team. In the end, we agreed that given the current situation, we will not be able to deliver the event we have been promising and planning for you. Why?
COVID is still around even though it's not on top of our agenda anymore. We received many questions on how we will make sure that this will be a safe event for everyone. The development we might see in early fall, could lead us into soft restrictions that will have a massive impact. We want this to be an unrestricted fun party and have therefore decided not to risk anything. Rather play safe to have an awesome event in 2023.
LOGISTICS are chaotic to say the least. Each one of you who has been following the news on global supply knows the deal. Currently, it's close to impossible to seriously plan and confirm any shipments. What impact does that have on the event you might ask yourself. A lot. We are not only bringing in some of the most celebrated US breweries to you, but THEIR BEERS as well. Delays in container forwarding and unloading turn this into a roulette. We don't want to risk not having the freshest beers for you on site.
The next Liquid Hops Bash 2023 will be September 15-16 in the same location. So put it in your calendars. This will be more epic than what we planned for 2022 with more big names!
For those of you who bought their ticket already, we will be fully reimbursing the ticket price. There is nothing you need to do and even though we'll start reimbursement asap, please have some patience with us, it will all be taken care of.
As mentioned above, the decision was not an easy one for us and we are fully aware of the impact it might have on each one of you. We were and are fully committed to bring you a super exciting event with a line-up you have never seen before. This same commitment will remain unchanged in 2023.
We are all counting on seeing you next year. In the meantime, follow our channels for updates and spread the word.
Cheers from the LHB orga team.
