    We’re taking the giant plot behind building 12 (aka the garden bar) and turning it into the HOP-CADE! Our dream of creating an outdoor arcade and beer garden from last year has been realized.

    * Only IPAs on tap
    * Our oversized lawn games (Jenga, Connect Four, etc)
    * Two pinball machines (The Twilight Zone and Theatre of Magic)
    * Donkey Kong
    * Ms. Pac-Man
    * A Skee-ball machine

    Not enough? How about an arcade game with a 25-foot screen driven from a used beer barrel converted into a vintage arcade console? This last feat will be created by our friend Hunter Bond, Troll Slayer and resident Pinball Mechanic at J!NX, with custom metal routing by San Diego’s reproHAUS.
