As winter melts into spring (soon, we hope!), Central New York draws closer to prime beer-drinking season. But don't just rely on the same old brands. Come to this year's TAP into the MOST fundraiser and find a new brew to enjoy during fishing trips, family picnics, and fireworks displays this summer.
The 10th annual event, set for 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at the MOST, brings together dozens of beers for you to try, as well as wine and hard cider. Paired with food from fabulous local restaurants and music from Alibi and The Baby Boomers Band, TAP is the area's best spring beer tasting event and THE place to be. If March Madness has gotten a hold on you, don't worry. We'll have big screens throughout the MOST where you can catch the big game.
TAP tickets cost $60 at the door.
But for the best experience, consider becoming a VIP, which will get you access a half hour earlier, and special foods and unique beers for tasting in a private VIP lounge. The lounge will have its own screen to watch basketball from comfy seats. With limited availability, the VIP area is the best place to go to cheer on the Orange.
TAP VIP tickets cost $85 at the door.
Beverage samples may include Angry Orchard, Beck's, Brooklyn Brewery, Butternuts Beer & Ale, Cooperstown Brewing Co., Cortland Beer Co., Empire Brewing Co., Fort Collins Brewery, Full Sail Brewing Co., Goose Island, Gordon Biersch, Great Lakes Brewing Co., Harpoon IPA, Harvest Moon Cidery, Ithaca Beer Co., Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, Long Trail Ale, Middle Ages Brewing Co., McKenzie's Hard Cider, Saranac Brewery, Shock Top, Southern Tier Brewing Co. and many, many more.
Last year's restaurants included bc Restaurant, Carnegie CafÃ© & Catering, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Julie's Place/Karen's Catering, Kitty Hoynes, Lemon Grass/Bistro Elephant, Pastabilities, and Wegmans. Check back later for a list of this year's restaurants.
The best reason to attend is what your money goes toward. Money raised at TAP will fund the MOST's outreach and education programs, which gives local students the background they need for careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The money will also help bring in high-quality traveling exhibits that make the MOST a key educational resource for all of Central New York.
The event runs from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. April 5.
