    10 out of 10 on 10/8/21

    When we walked into THC almost 3 years ago, they were still in the middle of renovations, but we trusted Anna and her vision, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. Every guest said how they were skeptical when they were walking up to the gate, but the minute they stepped in the back garden they were blown away. The grounds are stunning, the tent set up and the bar were beautiful, the ceremony site is magical. Anna and her whole team, from bartenders to bar back to Anna herself, were courteous, professional, friendly, warm, funny, and helped make our night so amazing and special. Anna is a dream to work with, along with her partner Alexia, and she truly makes everything run so smoothly. Thank you guys!!

    AMAZING Wedding at The Hops Company

    I would highly recommend the Hops Company for your wedding or any other small to large gathering! Anna and her team were amazing from start to finish! Professional, attentive and all around great to work with. They really know what they're doing and everything was seamless from our perspective as well as our guests'! The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, as well as the brand new barn/bar area, which could also serve as a ceremony or cocktail hour site during inclement weather. I'm actually thinking of another event to celebrate so we can go back!
