Hops for Housing 2021 FAQ
Is there any difference between the early bird vs the regular ticket?
No. This year tickets are $35 and $50 that will get you access to: the souvenir pint glass, 12 free pints ticket, 1 growler (for $50 ticket only) and any other swag from our sponsors and brewers.
Do I need to pick up my packet at Willis Dady Homeless Services?
No! This year we are having pick-up opportunities at EVERY BREWERY NIGHT throughout the summer. Check out the schedule below and plan to come on out to get your tickets!
If you are unable to come to any of these events, or would like your tickets in between events, contact and we can schedule a pick up time at our shelter (1247 4th Ave SE Cedar Rapids, IA 52403)
Can I pick up my partner/spouse's packet when I pick up mine?
Yes! If you bought tickets for someone else, you can pick them up at any of our brewery nights throughout the summer. It is your responsibility to distribute them to whomever you bought tickets for!
Can I send someone else to pick up my packet for me?
Yes! If you need someone else to pick up your packet for you, contact .
Will I need proof of purchase to pick up?
Nope! Our volunteers will have a list of everyone who has bought a ticket on hand and can check off that you have picked up. If you are picking up for someone else, please let us know their name so we can track down their ticket.
Can I get another ticket if I lose mine?
Unfortunately, no. We ordered a limited number of tickets and do not have extra to be replacing any lost punch-cards. If you would like to get a new punch-card, or an additional punch-card, head to our site to get one!
Does every establishment have patio seating?
Most of our establishments have patio seating available for you to safely enjoy your pint! I would check with the establishment’s website/Facebook page before going if you would like to plan out your trips.
How long is the card valid?
Your punch card is valid through October 31st 2021! You can visit these breweries and establishments at your own pace throughout the next 5 months or come hang out with us to redeem your pints throughout the summer.
How do I redeem my pints?
You’ll go and visit one of our partner establishments and tell your server/bartender that would like to redeem your Hops for Housing free pint! Make sure that you bring your card with you, as they will want to mark off your card to indicate that you have gotten your pint. For the Irish Democrat, The Blind Pig, and Union Station, you will tear off the card and hand it to your server. It is as simple as that!
