STERLING – Hops on the Rock, a craft beer festival, will be held from 3 to 6 p.m., with a VIP session from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday, rain or shine, at Avenue A and West Second Street, behind The Factory Pub ‘N’ Grub.

More than 30 brands, some from home brewers, will be on tap, and food will be sold.

VIP admission costs $40 in advance only; general admission costs $25 and there’s a designated driver ticket for $10, both available at the gate.
