As the "Honorary Brewmaster" of this past weekend's "Utica On Tap", I'd just like to say thank-you to all of you who made the event a huge success.

Thanks to you for attending either the early or late afternoon session of Utica On Tap, and many thanks go out to the staff and mangement of the Stanley Theater. When I talked with people attending, they really enjoyed sampling all the brews on the Stanley World Stage!

I met a lot of great 96.1 WODZ listeners who know their beers, and had some very informative discussions with all the many craft brewers on stage. Thanks also go out to Pizza Boys of New York Mills, The Lotus Garden, Killabrew Saloon & Irish Pub and Mr. McGill's for keeping everyone well fed. And thanks to our friends at Swifty's Restaurant & Pub for the official Utica On Tap after party.

Of course, many thanks to the distributors and craft brewers who brought along so many exceptional beers to sample, and all of our exhibitors and sponsors! Ryan and our Townsquare Media colleagues made sure every detail was taken care of.

And, we were all kept entertained by the music of the Amy lyn duo and Kelly & Max, great job by true performers. So, after such a successful event, we just hope that we brought some "Cheers" to your weekend.
