Beer Garden

Come join us at the Maine premiere of our Hops House 99 beer garden. You'll be welcomed with smiling faces as our beer chicks and dudes serve up an assortment of your favorite local and national beers!  Relax in our comfortable Adirondack lounge and take a well deserved break from all the live music and scrumptious barbecue action. This event is what we’re all about and we can’t wait to see everyone there! In the meantime join us down at Hollywood Casino and sample our daily specials and creative menus 7 days a week. Here at Hops House 99 you're always encouraged to take one down and pass it around...
