Hop Sauce Fest will feature over 20 of the best craft beers from Shore Point Promotion’s lengthy roster of microbrews, hard ciders and adult sodas, as well as an Indie Beer Tent for independent brewers like Ship Bottom Brewery, Forgotten Boardwalk, Tuckahoe Brewing, 902 Brewing Co, and Backward Flag.
This year’s two most notable additions are the nationally acclaimed co-headlining acts, The Lonely Biscuits and Craig Finn, as well as MakeShift Row, a collection of regional artisans. The Lonely Biscuits, from Nashville, play soul, funk, and pop blended with laidback hip-hop. As MTV’s “College Artists of the Year,” they were making waves in the college music scene while still students themselves. They have graced the stages of Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Hangout Fest, Austin City Limits, and SXSW. Craig Finn helped put his band, the Hold Steady, on the indie music map by threading lively narratives through his lyrics on five acclaimed studio albums. Most recently, Finn has cultivated his solo work, prompting Pitchfork to call him, “a born storyteller who’s chosen rock as his medium.” The line-up on this year’s stage presented by Volkswagen of Toms River is rounded out by Brooklyn indie outfit Small Black, the raw soul of Trevor Sensor, and LBI locals Funk Shway.
As always, this progressive festival will play host to 22 hot sauce/spicy condiment vendors. These sauces have proved a perfect compliment to food from the Shore Fire Grille, the Black Whale Bar & Fish House, Country Kettle, Buckalew’s, El Swell, the Arlington, the Chicken or the Egg, Barry’s Do Me a Flavor, Tuckers Tavern, the Sea Shell and Living on the Veg.
