The Tap & Mallet is one of Rochester, NY’s best beer bars and over the weekend they hosted a really cool event dubbed the “Victory Total Tap Takeover & Pig Roast”
Check out all of those V’s!
(Thanks to our buddy Deron for the photo!)
With approximately 30 taps at the bar, to have one brewery dominate them all is a pretty big deal. They had them all on special and there were even guest speakers from the brewery throughout the day.
As for the beer, highlights included:
- Uncle Teddy’s Bitter (on cask)
- Saison du Buff (Dogfish/Stone collaboration)
- Summer Love
- Abbey 5
- Pursuit Pale Ale Series
- Braumeister Pils
- Moonglow Weizenbock
- Gassy Jack Bitter
- Scarlet Fire Rauchbier
- Hop Devil IPA
- Harvest Pils (a draft-only Pilsner brewed once a year positioned around the annual hop harvest. It is considered a “fresh hop” beer as the Mt Hood Hops used are from a farm in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, harvested, driven back to the brewery by their head brewer and brewed within 12 hours.)
- Baltic Thunder
- Yakima Glory (their black IPA)
- Wild Devil
The cool part is, that’s only a partial list! If you’re in the Rochester area, stop by and help them finish it off. Even after an incredible turnout, they have some leftovers. You can even check out their draft list.
Make sure to check out their events page too! They have a really cool Belgian Beer & Food Festival coming up on December 4th and hopefully a few of us will be able to make the trip.
