The inaugural Hops for Pops charitable beer festival is being held on Saturday, June 28th from 4:00-8:00pm on Indianapolis Northside in the outlots of Hot Shotz (4705 E. 96th Street). Hops for Pops is a charitable beer event along the lines of AleFest - but benefiting Dad's Inc., the Indianapolis-based and Chris Maples founded organization with the following mission statement:
The mission of Dads Inc. is to provide support and education for fathers in order to develop healthy relationships and involvement in their children's lives.
So much like Wu Tang*, Hops for Pops is for the children! You like children, don't you?
In all seriousness, we're hoping to put on a nice event, and we'd love to have you out. Tickets are available here, at Deano's Vino, or at Hot Shotz. And maybe some other places too.

This note fresh from the comments - as left by Chris Maples himself:
Actually, tickets aren't at Deano's yet. They are at Hot Shotz, Barley Island, The Hop Shop and Rock Bottom - Downtown. I'm hoping to have them at Deano's & J. Gumbo's, and at least one place on the southside, too. We should know all of that by Wednesday.
The easiest way to purchase, though, is online at www.dadsinc.org. With gas prices they way the are, save the special trip and use that money on beer or the kick-ass raffle of a roundtrip for two to the 2008 GABF!!

*Not like Wu Tang at all, actually. Well, maybe a little bit. Chris Maples is our original ODB.
