It’s about to get foamy in the Lehigh Valley.  

That’s because the 10th annual Lehigh Valley Beer Week kicks-off tomorrow.

Listen to the story.

The 7-day event includes activities like yoga and beer at Lost Tavern Brewing in Hellertown, beer and brunch at Porters’ Pub in Easton and beer trivia at Two Rivers Brewing in Easton. 

More than 30 taprooms, brewpubs and breweries are taking part, including HiJinx Brewing Company in Allentown. Head brewer Curt Keck says Hop Nectar IPA will be on tap.

“It’s a little hazy, but not over the top. It’s quite bitter too, like a West Coast style. It’s got hops and fruity flavors,” Keck said. 

This year, event organizers came up with a special beer to support Ukraine.  It’s called “Ukrainian Gold,” and a portion of sales will go to war relief efforts. 

Lehigh Valley Beer Week runs through May 21. A full calendar of events can be found on the beer week website’s calendar page.

Beer fans may also enjoy WLVR’s new craft beer series Flight Club which explores local breweries and shares the backstory of what’s on tap.  

Flight Club airs  at 7:44 p.m. Thursdays, 2:33 p.m. and 5:44 p.m. Fridays and at 5:35 p.m. Saturdays.

Find Flight Club events at WLVR.org.
