Diageo has announced a new celebration of communities to take place this coming Sunday 11th August, sponsored by Hop House 13.
In collaboration with the creative thinkers and doers of Dublin’s Fade Street, Hop House 13 will host Neighbourhoods, a day long celebration of the street on Sunday, 11th August, curated by local artists, musicians, chefs, business owners and publicans who will deliver unique and individual events free to attend and enjoy.
Fade Street will be closed to traffic for the day of the event, allowing music, food and celebration to take place across the whole street.
Experiences at the event will include music from Sim Simma, Telephones and Tiny Choons DJs and live on-street murals. A bike exhibition from Rothar, in collaboration with Epoch design, will run throughout the day. Also featuring at the event is an exhibition by the Art of Ping Pong at Hen’s Teeth and an on-street record fair from The R.A.G.E record and game store. A special menu and Chinese cooking demo by leading chef Kwangi Chan will be served by Chinese barbecue specialists Duck.
Local venues Hogan’s, L’Gueuleton, No Name Bar, Fade Street Social, Idle Wild and the Market Bar will be hosting special music and food events throughout the day. Food offerings will feature bespoke menus that pair with and compliment the Hop House 13 flavour.
Commenting on the upcoming event, Peter Simpson, creator and brewer of Hop House 13 said: “Hop House 13 was born from experimentation and creativity. At James’ Gate, we are given the freedom to try new things. From experimenting with a multitude of different flavours, we finally landed on the distinctive Hop House 13 lager.
“Creativity is key in brewing so supporting similar communities who strive to make great things makes sense. We’re looking forward to celebrating with the Fade Street community in August.”
Events and experiences will take place across the day on 11th August from noon until 11pm and are free to attend. The full line-up is to be announced soon.
