The festival is called the "greatest celebration of craft beer made in New York State."

"We're not talking about big-corporation beer that comes out of huge vats in a 300,000 sq. ft. production plant. We're talking about hand-made beer.... beer with enough personality and genuine taste to be called craft-brewed. This is beer made with pride by people who truly enjoy a quality, flavorful beer," TAP NY states.

TAP New York started in 1998. Over 100,000 beer lovers have attended the craft beer festival, which is one of the largest and longest-running craft beer festivals in the country.

USA Today has named it one of the 10 best beer festivals in America.
