Back for its fourth year on the North Fork, the Long Island Fresh Hop Festival drew hundreds to Jamesport Farm Brewery for a showcase of all things craft beer Saturday.

Guests got the chance to taste versions of fresh hop beers alongside the traditional version of the same beer. There were also plenty of special limited-edition beers to sample, many of which are not available to the general public.

Live music, backyard games, pumpkin chucking and food from Christopher Michael Catering were some other highlights from the event. See more photos from the day by Elizabeth Wagner below:
