at Genesee Brew House in Rochester, NY

The Tap It Forward Festival is a community beer festival celebrating New York state beer and all the incredible artisans, farms, suppliers, educators and more that help to make our region a world-class brewing destination. Proceeds from the day will benefit the New York State Brewers Association (NYSBA).

Last year, more than 2,000 attended the festival, along with over 20 New York state breweries, 10 vendors, food trucks and live music. We’re absolutely pumped for this year’s event, and we’re planning on making it even bigger and better than last year’s with more breweries and more tickets for you!

If you are with a brewery or are a beer industry purveyor, we would love to have you join us! Click on Exhibitor Info for more information.
