Welcome to the Hop Garden! Operating as a sister to Sportsman's, the Hop Garden is an outdoor "beer garden" style venue, complete with full bar, restrooms, live music, and more.
With an awesome draft beer lineup, domestics and seltzers in cans, seasonal drinks, and a selection of mixed cocktails, we have something out here for everyone!
FUN ALL DAY & NIGHT
Our live music schedule is FULL. Like, too many enchiladas from Los Rancheros full. We feature local and regional artists, both small and large, on our spacious stage. Watch out for our 2021 music lineup -- we're bringing some BIG names to the Hop Garden!
We also like games. We play Cornhole, Giant Jenga, Yard Pong, Connect 4, and more...
Hop Garden Cornhole League
Join us on Wednesdays thru Labor Day weekend for our weekly Cornhole League! Each week, individuals and teams can sign up for our weekly tournament-style league. No commitment, no carry-over -- play as often as you want! Weekly payouts and a format that changes frequently, to keep it fresh and fun. Just $5/person and $10/team each week!
Queen of Hearts 50/50 Raffle
Sponsored by United Way of Brown County Illinois, the Queen of Hearts Raffle is designed to raise money for the benefit of several local non-profit organizations. The drawing takes place every Thursday at 7pm in Sportsman's / Hop Garden, but you can buy tickets any time by contacting a BC United Way member, or by stopping in every Thursday starting at 5pm.
QoH will be held in Sportsman's when weather / seasonal closings affect Hop Garden open hours. You can also go to Lucky Harts, Rolling Greens Golf Course, or Treasure Island to be considered "present" for the weekly drawings.
