Anyone going to be headed to TAP NY this year?
I was kicking around the idea...
I'll be there. Looks like it's getting even bigger this year... lots of new, interesting breweries popping up.
I'm going staying at scribner hollow went last year cant wait! If anyone else is going and wants to trade some stuff I'm doing. Live in cuse and have lots of genny bock hahah
I haven't stayed at the Scrivner since I injured my wrist in the grotto post-TAP. Y'all be careful now!
This will be my 4th year attending. I really enjoy it and its a lot of fun.
ill be there
where is everyone else staying? ^jr headed to cosmic charlies for a beer or two afterwards haha?
Yeah, where do people stay for this?
Will be there Saturday only this year. Have a place to crash, but can't do Sunday so...
Got room pal???
Is anyone from NYC going up on the charter bus on Sunday? I'm in town on business starting on the 21st for 7 weeks and thought TAP NY might make a fun day trip. Just bought a bus/festival ticket, but will be by myself so was hoping to find a few people to hang out with.
We will be there
Sweet! The brewery lists includes a vast majority of invited breweries with many more additions from last year. We are very excited for this fest
Definitely going... this has been my 5-6 year. A LOT of new NY breweries which is always exciting. This is one of the best weekends of the year...
Anybody noticed that there are now 61 confirmed breweries? Sloop will be there and if no one is familiar with these guys I would recommend an early stop by on Saturday as I bet they will have a cask of something good! Rushing Duck, Peekskill, Crossroads, and Cortland are also gonna be my first stops.
Sloop. Thanks for the tip. Peekskill will be one of my first stops, one of my middle stops, and one of my last stops.
How about a last call BA meetup at Shmaltz? I love to end the fest there for a heavy, strong sample or two.
All great choices Dave.
Weather Channel app says high of 52 next Saturday at Hunter Mountain. I'll take it, but I'd bet it's even warmer. TAP Saturday always seems to be glorious.
Asking if I'm headed to TAP is like asking if I'll be alive again this year. My wife and I take a bus trip with a beer club out of Gaslight Brewery (brewpub) in South Orange, NJ every year. Agreed on hitting Peekskill early, everything I've heard about them is that they're going to blow up soon. One of my favorites every year is Brown's Brewing and their session whiskey porter. So much flavor in a low ABV beer.
BA recommends consuming at least 6-10 drinks per day leading up to a festival. I'm starting my training with a Founders Porter, then busting out the Brooklyn Silver Anniversary that's been chilling in the fridge.
Who's training with me? It's like The Biggest Loser, but we're drinking beer. And winning.
I like the Silver Anniv. It was better than expected actually.
I'm really liking it, especially as it warms up. I'm not so good at reviewing beers yet, but I'd say it's nice in a subtle way. At first I thought I didn't get my money's worth, but you know what? It's pretty smooth and nice.
Everybody remember, lotsa water, and we always heavily bacon and cheese it up beforehand. Gonna be a lot of great beer and we all will do better if we can drink what we want and still enjoy them. I haven't been able to "train" properly this week at all, but hope to try some of every beer I enjoy.
Also, hope the food is as great as it was last year, def. the best year yet for food quality and quantity.
Will look for BA's at Schmaltz at the end of day, think we'll be a foursome, maybe bring a bottle or two of my own NY beer to share.
I'll plan for the BA meet-up at Schmaltz as well towards the end of the day sat.
Anyone else staying at scribner hollow? It'd be cool to have a few beers afterwards on sat and/or sunday
The food theme this year is "best of" - the favorites of past TAP events.
Remember to say "Swordfish" to Adam or Justin. You will be rewarded. I tried this beer, it is fucking delicious!!!!
All checked in and ready to go. See you all there! Anyone doing anything special post fest tonight? Apparently Chatham brewery is throwing party with a band here at scribner hollow
