The Sun Sets On Another Tap NY! It was another amazing weekend…

The Sun Sets On Another Tap NY! It was another amazing weekend for NY beer at Hunter Mountain this weekend. Additions of an outdoor stage for awards announcements and most importantly, tenting the entirety of the slopeside area really made for a better overall experience. There was so much beer it is starting to become an event you truly need to come both days for to get to try everything you want. Congrats going to this year’s winners- Horseheads for best NYS brewery, Chatham for best Hudson Valley brewery and Barrier who won best beer for their SmackDab IPL. ‘Til next year…
