Interesting,

Their site is blocked at work but I'm sure I'll be hearing about it more in the coming months. What happened to top of the hops?

Red Mountain Entertainment, the production company that sponsored the festival, Changed the name and moved it to Champions Square. It's now the International New Orleans Beer Festival. It was just last month.

If you go to the Top of the Hops, Northshore Facebook Page and read their announcement of the name and venue change, you'll see how pissed off people were.

Top of the hops was 4 hours... 5 with a VIP ticket. This one will be 7 with a VIP ticket. Think I'm gonna bring a tent and sleep in the park cause I won't even be able to make it from the event to the parking lot to get to the car of whoever is picking me up.

LMAO

Yeah, it would totally be worth it to rent a camping spot for the night.
