Utica on Tap a playground for beer lovers

 

beerIf you love beer, especially craft beer, then the Utica on Tap Festival is for you. Here’s the kicker. Even if you think that you don’t like beer, it may still be for you. Craft beer isn’t all dark and bitter. Some of it is fruity, malty, nutty or even sweet and sometimes featuring chocolate, vanilla, oatmeal or even coffee flavors. If your only beer experience is from a can of yellow, fizzy mass produced light beer, give craft beer a try. There will be a huge variety of craft brews to sample  and live entertainment by Max and Kelly. This year there will be two sessions: 1 to 4 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m., Saturday, April 30 at Utica Memorial Auditorium, 400 Oriskany St., Utica.

Utica on Tap will include over 100 beers and ciders from some of America’s finest craft breweries. Some of these include Shock Top, Magic Hat, Blue Moon, Twisted Tea and probably the most well-known, Sam Adams. You may have heard of these and even tried some or all of them. What you may not know is that these breweries offer a wide variety of beers that aren’t always available at your local market. You might discover that your favorite craft brewery has more to offer than you could have imagined.

The cost is $35 in advance and you must have your paper ticket in hand or digital ticket on your smart phone. Tickets will be $45 at the door. With your admission, you receive a free tasting glass to sample the brews for the entire 3 hours as well as free entertainment from some of the best local talent around. Obviously, you must be at least 21 to enter. Tickets are available at http://uticaontap.com. Come on out and find your new “go to beer” and discover why craft beer is taking the country by storm. Good people drink good beer. Cheers!
