REDDING, Calif. -

Downtown Redding’s first ever Hops & Shops beer and local business event will shine-on, despite the ongoing rain.

"There's going to be some really great, outstanding beers and a chance to peek inside some stores that you don't normally visit,” explained Jenny Hansen, Co-owner and CEO of Wildcard Brewing Co. in Redding.

Fifteen breweries will have a craft beer specialist on hand, pouring their select brews for those who purchase tickets to Saturday’s event.

“It'll be a little bit wet on your way from shop-to-shop, but once you get inside you're golden. An umbrella could be key, some boots might be a good idea,” said Hansen.

But Hansen said don’t let a little rain keep you away from attending the Shops & Hops event. Organizers will have you covered.

“We're setting up the promenade with a bunch of tents so you can kind of duck and cover as you make your way through the promenade to all these different businesses," explained Hansen.
