North Hop, the much-loved craft beer, craft spirits and street food festival coming to Aberdeen’s P&J Live on Saturday 24th September 2022, has released its full line-up and, with a huge variety of breweries, food trucks, distillers, bars and makers from the length and breadth of Scotland, festival-goers are in for a treat.

Serving up a range of botanical spirits and delicious cocktails is ‘Drink Me Events’ (fizz and fizz cocktails), ‘Angels Dare Cocktails’ (canned cocktails) and ‘Dunnet Bay Distillers’ (Rock Rose Gin & Holy Grass Vodka serves & cocktails) plus a whole host of other fantastic Scottish Distilleries and Bars.

Ticketholders will also be able to choose from a mouth-watering selection of street food vendors. Guests will be able to feast from ‘The Gaff’, delivering epic wood-fired pizzas done just the way you like, ‘The Seafood Bothy’, cooking up local landed seafood dishes and ‘Bombay Grillz by The Catering Collective’, dishing up delicious Indian street food specials plus much more.

The festival will also feature Scottish makers and producers selling everything from hot sauce, craft kombucha and eclectic jewellery to snacking salamis during two Saturday sessions – 1pm to 5pm or 6pm to 10pm.

Michelle Russell, North Hop Festival Director, says: “We are so pleased to announce our festival line-up featuring some of the best local breweries, bars, street food vendors and makers/producers Scotland has to offer. After a four-year wait, North Hop Aberdeen is back – better than ever!”
