2016 – 40th Annual Fall Tasting

This Fall Tasting will be the 40th Fall Tasting and one of the oldest and longest continuously running beer event in the country! As such, we are pulling out all the stops to put on a very special tasting that you will not want to miss. The Fall Tasting allows the public to participate in a blind tasting of craft beers and then vote for their favorites.
