He has been featured on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine and played the music of Steve Martin commissioned for New York City's esteemed "Shakespeare in the Park" series in Central Park in summer 2012.

We work closely with our distributors breweries and  Resturaunts on an ongoing basis to assemble the final comfirmed list. Please understand, however, that occasionally, due to circumstances beyond our control, certain last minute changes and/or substitutions to our food and beer may be necessary.

*This food in no way shape or form will constitute a meal, the food is present merely to compliment the libation and is not in anyway meant to provide more than a taste of what each resturaunt is fully capable of


Unlike most beer festivals, The Hand Crafted Tasting Co. actually pays for all of the beer served at our events. We also waive booth fees for brewers to further support craft brewers access to our events as promotional platforms. Across all of our Seasonal events we spend hundreds of thousands of dollars each year on the craft beer served at our festivals.
