The third BeerYard Festival, a one day festival connecting three independent scenes (craft breweries, street food and music), will take place September 1, 2018, in the big yard of Pogon Jedinstvo, a familiar location of the first two editions. #FeelTheHops story stays the same; we bring you well-known and less known Croatian breweries, awesome foreign breweries, new street food establishments, as well as uncompromising independent bands of various musical genres that are still relatively unknown to a wider audience. The craft fever goes on as the number of craft beer fans grows and domestic offer gets better and richer. A similar thing is happening in neighbouring countries, which boosts the entire craft beer movement in these areas. BeerYard Festival is not a classic beer festival - it's a festival for beer geeks, true beer lovers who don't enjoy traditional commercial beers. We stick to our philosophy that aims to familiarize people with the world of craft brewing and we want to show them why independent brewing is superior to industrial brewing. Just like in previous years, most brewers will be presenting their products and anyone can feel free to discuss any topics with them in person.

This year we're happy to announce the arrival of Manchester brewery Cloudwater Brew Co, a real dream-come-true for every craft lover. In 2017 it was rated second best brewery in the world by RateBeer portal. You'll also have a chance to enjoy beers from Romania's Hop Hooligans, Brew Your Mind sörfozde and Horizont Brewing from Hungary, Piwne Podziemie from Poland, Meadly - Bulgarian Craft Mead, Estonian Põhjala Brewery and Slovenian Reservoir Dogs brewery.
Domestic craft forces will be presented by well-known breweries and some newcomers: 5th Element, Beckers Craft Brewery, Black Hat Craft Brewery, BURA BREW porecka craft pivovara, Dubrovacka Pivovara, Pivovara Medvedgrad, Pivnica i pivovara Mlinarica, Nova runda, Pivionica, Positive Brewery, PriMarius craft pivovara, Pulfer, Valens, Varionica, Zeppelin Craft Brewery and Zmajska pivovara. Many will premiere their brand new beers on BeerYard Festival.

American bar Dollar Vž from Varaždin and BBQ Hot Yard from Zagreb are responsible for food, Volim ljuto will present their famous Vrabasco and Alpinos hot sauces and other products, while Giftonaut.com will sell beer-themed T-shirts.

The music part of the festival again focuses on some great independent bands of different genres. We kick off at 7.00 pm in the yard of Jedinstvo with energetic hardcore punks Stronghold ZGxHC (http://www.youtube.com/user/strongholdhc) who played with Sick Of It All and Agnostic Front; followed by "the biggest secret of Croatian indie rock", Sleepyheads ( https://slipihedz.bandcamp.com/), Zagreb club scene regulars with a significant following; psychedelic rockers KILLED A FOX, part of House of Pablo collective ( https://killedafox.bandcamp.com/) currently working on their new release, so we can definitely expect some new songs; and a horror pop punk trio Saucesce ( https://saucesce.bandcamp.com/releases), a band comprised of members of Mašinko, Fraktura Mozga and Picke Vrište.
