Beer lovers hopped on down to the nTelos Wireless Pavilion on Saturday for a chance to get crafty.

The fourth-annual Top of the Hops Beer Festival showcased the popularity of craft beers from around the country. Patrons received 2-oz. samples of more than 150 craft beers.

Games and music rounded out the festival, which continues to grow with both vendors and beer lovers year after year.

"I think it's just seeing all the variety of people who really love craft beer, and then also each year we get more local breweries," said Kirby Hutto of the nTelos Wireless Pavilion. "We have several that are here for the first time, like Champion and Three Notch'd. Three Notch'd just opened last week."

The festival also featured a number of beer seminars like Cooking with Beers, Food Pairings and other beer education sessions.
