Live Music at Hapa’s

We have a fun week at Hapa’s this week!  A new beer is dropping on Friday and join us for two nights of live music.

  • Experience Mosaic is the second of our hazy single hop pale ales.  This zero IBU beer got loads of late addition and dry hops leaving a beer with tons of aroma and flavor with no bitterness
  • Enjoy a pint of Experience Mosaic while listening to some live music.  For the first time, we’re welcoming Tim Connor of The Fourth Son.
  • The fun continues on Saturday when Catherine Brady performs her vocal-driven re-imagined standards (classic rock and 90’s pop).

Cheers!

Hapa’s One Year Anniversary Party!

Can you believe it’s been a year already!  This day exactly one year ago, we opened our doors for the first time!  Feels like just yesterday we were scrambling to figure out the cash registers, hand washing pint glasses, and only pouring three beers!  Thank you to everyone who has welcomed us with open arms.

It wouldn’t be an anniversary without a celebration! Join us on Saturday, February 10th for a full day of food, music, games, and BEER!  The Tens will be here rocking the house as will Pat of First Friday fame.  We’ll have food trucks all day and games for all ages!  Oh did I mention there will be beer!? And not just any beer, we’ll have some special releases!

Cheers!
