Toss in must-see music performances and a bunch of snow-starved fanatics ready to party like there’s no tomorrow, and it’s no wonder why HDHR is called “the largest winter kickoff party known to man”. And this year, they’re teaming up with Punk In Drublic Fest. Created from the mind and liver of NOFX’s frontman Fat Mike, the Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival highlights the best in punk rock music and regional craft beer.
