Tap Trekker Tour: A Beer Lover’s Dream


When it comes to beer, there’s nothing quite like tasting fresh brews straight from the source. That’s where the Tap Trekker Tour comes in – a journey through some of the best breweries in the country, all while enjoying the beautiful scenery along the way. And this year, 42 North is hitting the road for the ultimate beer-lover’s road trip.

What is Tap Trekker Tour?

The Tap Trekker Tour is an annual event where beer enthusiasts gather for a weekend of traveling to some of the best craft breweries around. Each year, a different region of the country is chosen as the destination, and this year, it’s the Northeast. From September 17th to September 19th, the tour will take us through New York, Vermont, and Massachusetts, with stops at some of the most renowned breweries in each state.

The Breweries

The tour starts at 42 North in East Aurora, New York, where we’ll get to enjoy some of the brewery’s signature beers, including the Borderland IPA and the Asylum Porter. From there, we’ll head to Vermont for a stop at the Alchemist, known for their famous Heady Topper IPA. Other Vermont breweries on the itinerary include the Burlington Beer Company and Lawsons Finest Liquids.

The final leg of the tour takes us to Massachusetts, where we’ll stop at Tree House Brewing and Trillium Brewing Company, both known for their juicy IPAs. We’ll end the tour with a farewell party at Night Shift Brewer in Everett, Massachusetts.

The Experience

Beyond just the breweries, the Tap Trekker Tour offers a unique experience that you won’t get at a typical beer festival or tasting. The tour’s organizers arrange for scenic routes between each stop, so attendees can enjoy the beautiful landscapes and small towns of the Northeast.

In addition, the tour includes VIP access to each brewery we visit, with behind-the-scenes tours and tastings of their signature beers. We’ll also get to meet the master brewers and staff who make these delicious beers possible, and learn about the brewing process firsthand.


If you’re a beer lover, the Tap Trekker Tour is an experience you won’t want to miss. With 42 North leading the way on this year’s journey through the Northeast, you can rest assured that you’ll be in good hands throughout the weekend. So pack your bags and join us on the ultimate beer-lover’s road trip. We’ll see you on the road!
