For one day, two great and storied American crafts come together to bring you the inaugural “What’s on Tap” Craft Beer Festival. Twenty-five craft brewers will showcase their finest beers on the idyllic, lakeside pinelands of the Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center. WheatonArts can trace its roots back to 1888 When Dr. Theodore Wheaton first started his glass empire that would soon expand to 41 factories nationwide and garner a reputation as the center of commercial glass manufacturing in the United States. Just as the craft brewer spends much time and care formulating the perfect beer recipe so too does the master glass blower.
So where do these two great American industries intersect? Glass is so much more than simply a vessel for containing a liquid. We would argue that the glass, as unique as the artist who created it, accentuates the beer. As soon as the beer hits the glass, its color, aroma, and taste is altered, your “eye candy” receptors tune in, and your anticipation is tweaked. Hidden nuances become more pronounced, colors shimmer, and the enjoyment of the beer simply becomes a better, more complete experience.
Please join us on Saturday, May 13, 2017, as we celebrate American industry. Twenty-five craft brewers will be pouring over 50 different brews and food trucks will be on-site serving up some of your beer festival favorites. Live music, craft vendors, brewery awards, and games round out the day. One lucky guest might even get a chance to blow their own glass during a live demonstration.
