We had so much fun last year, and that’s why we’re doing it again! Buffalo On Tap, a giant craft beer festival presented by Consumers Beverages, is back. This year, it's happening Saturday, February 15 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Buffalo Convention Center!

I've become a beer drinker over the last few years and found myself sampling many of the different varieties of craft beers at the event last year. I tend to like the lighter beers over the dark. If you love beer, you’re going to love Buffalo On Tap.

Every ticket purchaser will receive a souvenir sampling glass and various craft samplings. Plus, if you get hungry, there will be delicious BBQ from BW’s for sale during the festival.

Tickets for the event go on sale tomorrow, Friday, January 10. VIP passes are available for $55, and they get you in an hour early at 2 p.m. so you get the jump on everybody else. General admission is $35. You can get your tickets at any of the 17 Consumers Beverages locations.
