Fort Worth Aviation Museum presents Hops and Props Craft Beer Festival
Fort Worth Aviation Museum will celebrate its fifth annual veteran’s recognition and craft beer festival, Hops and Props. The airplane and beer fest is dedicated to recognizing our veterans while serving local craft beers and providing live music, food and family-friendly fun.
This year’s theme is “Cleared Hot” a reference to a Forward Air Controller’s command to attack a target. Aircraft to be dedicated are two Forward Air Control planes, a Vietnam War era Cessna O-2S Skymaster “Duck” and a Desert Storm era Boeing OV-10 “Bronco.” More family-oriented events will include military vehicles, virtual reality flight simulators, live music, military living history, family-friendly vendors, Veteran’s service organizations, food and refreshments, kid’s activities, “Beer Flights,” and helicopter rides are also being planned.
“Beer flights” will be available for purchase on a classic airplane, the C-47 “Southern Cross.” Each passenger will receive a souvenir bag and tasting glass. A “People’s Choice” medal will be awarded to the most-voted brewery in a variety of beer styles.
