TAP New York is 18! What once was a gathering of a hundred or so beer-drinkers and craft brewers has now blossomed into the self-proclaimed “largest and longest-running craft beer festival in New York State.”
Sample about 300 individual beers from nearly 120 of the state’s breweries, including several from the Valley (full list of Valley breweries here).
Guests can nosh on dishes inspired by regional fare; enjoy daily cooking demonstrations; and sample goods from two dozen vendors, including artisan goat cheeses, sausages, cinnamon-roasted nuts, and venison jerky. Pick up souvenirs, too: cigars, home brew kits, beverage gadgets, scarves, and “beer jewelry” are all available.
Raffles, live music by local bands, and overnight packages on the mountain provide enough fun for designated drivers.
