Held annually at the end of April and praised as the state's largest craft beer festival as well as the largest single-state craft beer event in the nation, TAP New York features hundreds of beers from over 120 breweries throughout New York State.
Craft brewing is alive and growing bigger than ever in New York State. The popularity of craft brewing has led to fuller bodied, flavorful brews featuring rich colors, bold flavors, and imaginative ingredients. People ask for it, and the brewers are answering. Many new craft breweries are opening every year, and we're both happy and proud to welcome them aboard.
TAP® New York has grown over tenfold through the years to now encompass the entire base areas at Hunter Mountain, plus added tent space. Over 120 breweries were invited for 2016, representing well over 300 individual beers, offer everything from IPAs and lagers to weissbiers, doppel and trippel bocks, stouts, ales... pretty much any variety you know of, and probably a few that you don't.
TAP® New York is also about food. Each year we offer plenty to eat. Daily cooking demonstrations will also show you some great ideas for your own kitchen.
TAP® is also a beer competition. Brewers from across the state enter their finest suds to compete for plaques and trophies. Each year on Saturday at TAP®, highly qualified judges choose the best craft brewery in New York State and also the best brewery in the Hudson Valley. Prizes are awarded for the Best Craft Brewery in New York State (Greene County's own Crossroads Brewing Co. was awarded a bronze medal in 2015!) as well as Best Craft Brewery in the Hudson Valley.
