FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
INAUGURAL ‘WHATS ON TAP’ CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL RESCHEDULED TO JUNE 17, 2017 AT WHEATONARTS CULTURAL CENTER IN MILLVILLE, NJ
MILLVILLE, NJ (April 2017) — The inaugural “What’s on Tap” Craft Beer Festival has been postponed to June 17, 2017 (from 1-5 p.m.) due to forecasts for inclement weather. The outdoor event, to be held at the historic WheatonArts and Cultural Center in Millville, NJ was originally scheduled for May 13, 2017, but weather forecasts called for cold, windy and rainy conditions on that date.
“Since this is our very first What’s On Tap Craft Beer Festival, we want to make sure the event is a positive experience and as memorable as possible,” said Gary Monterosso, host of the “What’s On Tap” TV show after which the festival is named. “When we saw the weather forecasts for May 13, we knew right away that the date would have to be changed so our attendees will have a great time and focus on the beer, the music, food and fun and not staying warm and dry,” he added. “Hopefully Mother Nature will be more cooperative on June 17.”
All tickets purchased for the May 13 date will be automatically transferred to the new date (June 17). Refunds will be issued to anyone who cannot make the new date.
“We apologize for this inconvenience and hope to see you all June 17,” said Monterosso.
All of the details of the originally scheduled event remain the same, including event times (1–5 p.m.), vendors, entertainment, food options and brewers. More than 20 craft brewers will be pouring more than 50 different kinds of beer, showcasing their finest and most popular beverage creations on the historic grounds of the WheatonArts and Cultural Center.
For one day, two great and storied American crafts come together for the inaugural “What’s on Tap” Craft Beer Festival. More than 20 craft brewers will showcase their finest beers on the idyllic, lakeside pinelands of the WheatonsArts and Cultural Center. WheatonArts traces 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.
The following Garden State craft beer brewers will be among the vendors at the festival:
• Glasstown Brewing Company (Millville, NJ)
• Eight & Sand Beer Co. (Woodbury, NJ)
• Tomfoolery Brewing Co. (Hammonton, NJ)
• Beach Haus Brewery (Belmar, NJ)

hours from 1-5pm. The Festival will also feature a live band playing popular covers, a DJ, beerrelated
