Triangle Hops for Hope is a fundraising event that pairs corporate teams with local breweries to create an original beer and raise money for charity. Teams showcase their creations to the public at an epic beer competition, and the public gets to vote on the winner. It’s the perfect opportunity to mix corporate social responsibility, employee engagement, and local beer.

All proceeds benefit Children’s Flight of Hope, a 501(c)(3) organization that provides air transportation for children to access specialized medical care. Hops for Hope 2019 raised over $175,000- our most successful Hops for Hope event yet! Our 6th annual event was held September 1-19, 2020 in local taprooms. Due to the impact of COVID-19, this event could not be held in a large-scale festival format as in years past. Beers were released in each brewery taproom instead. Check out our 2020 winners by clicking on “Teams” above!


Hops for Hope offers many different ways to get involved. Breweries can sign up to be matched with a team, companies can have a team and/or sponsor the event, and the main competition is ticketed for the public and attracts hundreds of attendees.

The most exciting way to get your business in on the action is to register a team. Employees get to engage in a little friendly competition with other top companies in the Triangle, build a relationship with a local brewery, and have fun crafting their own beer, all to raise money for a great cause. Team registration opens each spring- March 1 for returning teams and April 1 for new teams. Contact Lori Smith at lori@cfoh.org to inquire about joining the waiting list for 2021!
