More than 100 beers for you to choose from
You could sing every round of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall,"and it still wouldn't cover all the beers at Rochester on Tap.

Sessions one and two cost $36; VIP tickets are $51.
Rochester's event is one of 70 beer festivals that have been held around the country. America on Tap is the foremost producer of premium beer festivals in the U.S. Or as the people at America on Tap say, it's not just an opportunity to drink beer, but to experience beer.
