SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. – September 09, 2014 – The Friends of the Scotts Valley Library (FSVL) invites the local community to the Scotts Valley Library’s second annual “Hops & Harvest,” a celebration featuring live music with pairings of food and drink from local microbreweries and restaurants on September 20th, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Scotts Valley Library. All proceeds from the event will go toward supporting library programs, materials and supplies that benefit the entire community.

The event, chosen as a yearly occasion based on the success of the kickoff ‘Hops and Harvest’ in 2013, will showcase great local craft beer from Seabright Brewery, Santa Cruz Ale Works. Once again, brewers will be on hand to discuss their craft and recommend food pairings. Attendees will enjoy edible delights from local restaurants including Bruno’s BBQ, Mollie’s Country Café, Loganberry Bakery, and Oak Tree Villa.

Hops and Harvest attendees will have a chance to win great prizes donated by local businesses and artists, and can bid on auction prizes including an African Safari, and signed photos by the Harry Potter movie cast, Paul McCartney and Charles Schultz. Many local businesses are generously donating gift basket items including art from local area artists.

“The Friends of the Scotts Valley Library is committed to supporting the library and its programs so that it can continue to be a resource and facility that the entire community can be proud of,” said Derek Timm, president of FSVL. “Last year’s ‘Hops and Harvest’ event exceeded our expectations in all ways, and we invite everyone to join us for an evening of fun and celebration.”

Last year’s event proved very popular, with more than 150 attendees enjoying a beautiful Fall evening on the Library’s award-winning patio. More than $10,000 was raised. Tickets to Hops & Harvest are $25, and may be purchased in advance or at the door at the Scotts Valley Library. Please join what promises to be a great evening for the whole community!
