The tour will be hosted by Church Publick, Reade Street Pub, The Hideaway, Warren 77 and others, with beers and ciders presented by returning participants KelSo Beer Co., Gun Hill Brewing, Catskill Brewery, and The Bronx Brewery. New participating breweries include Sixpoint, Chatham Brewery, Original Sin Cider, Brooklyn Cider House, and Descendant Cider.
