Over the years, TAP New York has developed into one of New York State’s largest craft beer festivals.
We’re not talking about big-corporation beer that comes out of huge vats in a 300,000 sq. ft. production plant. We’re talking about hand-made beer…. not beer that is rushed through the brewing process to get it on the shelf as quickly as possible, but beer with enough personality and genuine taste to be called “craft-brewed”. This is beer made with pride by people who truely enjoy a quality, flavorful beer.
Many of the invited brewers produce their beer for sale only in their location…. whether it is a restaurant, a brewpub or a small brewery. Others are breweries large enough to distribute on a larger scale, but maintain an excellent quality through their commitment to craft-brewing their product. You’ll find everything from pale ales and pilseners, to weisbiers, porters, stouts, and scotch ales; from hearty Bohemian and Bavarian-style lagers to glorious Belgian-style ales and, dare we say, even more.
It’s about education…. about beer, about home-brewing, about beer/food pairings…. it’s about cooking demonstrations from some of the best chefs in the region (and beyond)…. and it’s about good friends coming together for a weekend of good beer, good food and good times.
