22nd Annual TAP® NY – April 27-28, 2019

@ Hunter Mountain, NY

15 minutes to Hunter from Hammo’s

“Over the years, TAP® New York has developed into New York State’s largest craft beer festival in the number of brewers attending.”

“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 truly enjoy a quality, flavorful beer.” (credit Tapny website)
