Lula Lake Land Trust announced today the return of Hike Bike Brew, their premier beer festival where brews meet the outdoors, on Saturday, Nov, 13 from noon-4 p.m. This is the sixth annual beer festival event to raise funds and awareness for LLLT’s conservation initiatives, such as hemlock preservation and trail-building efforts.
"Attendees can expect the exclusive, unique experience of brews in nature for which this Lula Lake signature event is known to provide," officials said. "Hike Bike Brew takes place at the LLLT Core Preserve on Lookout Mountain. Each ticket is an adventure waiting to happen. At this premier beer festival, you can hike or bike the 'Beer Path loop' leading you to the famous Lula Lake and Lula Falls, while stopping for beer tasters along the way."
The event offers beer from 11 breweries, including Chattanooga Brewing Company, Wanderlinger Brewing Company, Naked River Brewing Company, Five Wits Brewing Company, Back Forty Beer Company, Big River Brewing Company, OddStory Brewing Company, Phantom Horse Brewing Company, Hutton & Smith Brewing Company, Dalton Brewing Company and Heaven & Ale Brewing Company. Tickets include snacks from Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint and Pie Slingers Pizzeria.
“Hike Bike Brew is Lula Lake’s largest fundraiser and a community-favorite event,” says Matthew Hubbard, director of development for LLLT. “To say we are excited for the return of our festival would be a drastic understatement. We’re ready to get back into nature with brews and familiar faces—ready to raise funds and raise a glass to the hard work our organization has done since 1994 and what’s to come.”
"Hike Bike Brew is an experience you won’t soon forget with a new addition for 2021 - a raffle for lodging at either Treetop Hideaways or Chanticleer Inn Bed and Breakfast for $10 entries," officials said. "LLLT Corporate Partner Elley based in Marietta, Ga., is providing eco-friendly, one-of-a-kind pint cups for the 2021 festival."
A limited number of Early Bird Drinker Tickets are now available through the end of August for $55. These tickets include beer, souvenir cup, snacks and access to the beer path trail loop. Drinker tickets will be $65 starting Sept. 1 and $75 starting Oct. 1. Non-drinker tickets are $35 per person and include snacks and trail loop access. Safety measures are in place and we will be following CDC guidelines regarding masks and social distancing.
