The WPDH staff made it's annual pilgrimage to the TAP-NY Beer Festival in Hunter, NY this weekend.  It was a cold and windy day up in the mountains, but the taste of delicious, New York brews kept us warm and cozy all day long.

There were 80 breweries in attendance with an overwhelming amount of beer styles to sample.  From long-time attendees like Lake Placid to newcomers like Last Stop Brewery in Poughkeepsie who just opened for business 11 days ago, Hunter was the place to be for New York craft beer.
