There will be no 2015 Big Tap In.
First of all, let me thank each and every one of you for supporting The Big Tap In Real Craft Beer Festival - it has been an amazing journey for us. We never thought that we would get so much MASSIVE support for this event. Hosting a real craft beer festival was just a dream of ours. Each of you helped to make our dream become an amazing reality!
We also never thought that we could have the ability to raise so much money for a wonderful g...roup of girls and their awesome non-profit organization. Working with Making Kids Count has been a real joy and we cannot wait to work with them again in the future! Please continue to support their mission! What they do is so wonderful.
Another exciting part of our journey is that we had the ability to bring awareness of craft beer to the Mahoning Valley. In the last few years, craft beer has become pretty common in our area. We remember when people were not so sure of this, so called, "dark beer".
For all 5 of the Big Tap In events, we have had so many supporters including craft brewers, distributors, vendors, restaurants, entertainers, volunteers and attendees...it has been very humbling. We THANK YOU! We also thank many of you that supported our businesses in Boardman, OH - Vintage Estate Wine and Beer and Magic Tree Pub & Eatery - before, during and after BTI! We are grateful for you.
We are still very much passionate about the craft beer industry. We plan to bring other exciting craft beer centric events to the Mahoning Valley. If you are interested, keep subscribed to this email list. If not, please remove yourself - we don't want to SPAM you!
Again, BTI supporters....THANK YOU! Cheers to you! Thank you for allowing us to create memories for you!
