Located in Bay Shore, NY, TJ Finley's has rotating taps & local brews that keep beer fans coming to this high-energy hangout with simple pub grub.
We used Tapped Enterprises for my husbands birthday, Kevin was great, he made sure we got to each place on time and was very organized. We did a brewery tour on a Sunday and everyone had a great time! I can't wait to plan another tour and will definitely be using Tapped!
Just used these guys for a Bachelor Party and everything went so well! Kevin and the team were great to work with from the get-go. Our driver, Sal, was extremely nice and let us have a good time. Would definitely use them again and would recommend these guys in a heartbeat.
We can not thank Kevin enough for one of the best brewery tours we have ever gone on. Kevin from Tapped enterprises is a professional and knowledgeable beer expert. The whole process from talking to Kevin on the phone setting up the tour to final drop off, he went above and beyond. Our tour started off at GSB brewery then to long Ireland brewery (my personal favorite) then to diggers for some food and then last stop crooked ladder brewery. Kevin recommended a beer at each place that I made sure I personally sampled and have to agree with him that they were good. We had a group of 14 people and everyone had a great time. I highly recommend using them for your brewery tours. We are already planning another trip for after the holidays with a bigger group.
Wineries are old hat! Breweries are where it's at on Strong Island now! Big shout out and thank you to Drew, Tara and Kevin for putting together one of the best events so far! A party bus full of people, beer and a chauffeur whom not only takes you to all the local breweries but has the hook up with them all, so you feel like Karen walking into the Copacabana with Henry Hill. Now that's the way to say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013!!
The Magic Brew Bus Tour was amazing! I didn't know that a bus could get so boozed up, but it did, and it was tremendously fun. Kevin was literally the best bus driver I've ever had the good fortune of busing with. The breweries we visited were certainly very interesting and filled with the nectar of the ancient world (good beer). 5 stars. Well deserved 5 stars. Wooooooo!
Our group of 10 went on the Beer and Burger tour on a rainy Sun. Can't think of a better way to have spent the day. I had e-mailed Kevin and Ashley several times during the reservation process and they were great to deal with. Due to a scheduling conflict, we could not all fit on the bus, so they sent a limo for our group. Our driver was Column and he was great! Kevin was driving the bus and kept in contact with us at every stop. Our first stop was Spider Bite Beer Co where we all got a flight of delicious beer. Our group was so loud but the proprietors took it in stride and were so nice and accommodating. Next stop was Horace and Sylvia's for yummy burgers and a pint of beer. Our last stop was Great South Bay Brewery which had a great variety of beers. Kevin took us on a tour of their brewing process. I can't say enough about him. He is friendly, personable and extremely knowledgeable about beer making. We had a great day and look forward to doing another tour with Tapped!
I was lucky enough to have a second opportunity to be a part of Kevin @ Tapped Enterprises' AMAZING beer bus tour which this time featured Long Ireland, Great South Bay and Port Jeff breweries. Kevin has been an incredible resource and the first to market with the beer bus concept for the Longuyland bar scene that has exploded. I love what Kevin has been doing and look forward to many more beer bus tours!! IF you need a tour company and a man who has all the knowledge, KEVIN is your guy at Tapped Enterprises!!!!!!!!!!!
I just did a brewery tour with LI beer bus for my fiancé's 30th birthday. Everyone had SUCH a great time!! We did the west south shore tour with a group of 20 people. Throughout the planning process Kevin and Mike were very helpful and responsive. They found out ahead of time that the pub we were supposed to go to was celebrating St. Patrick's day the day of our tour so they switched us to another pub with the same deal to avoid being stuck in that crowd. Our driver Sal was super nice and kept us on time all day without making us feel rushed. This is a great deal for your money. We had pick up from Manhattan, comfortable seating and partying on the bus, plenty of food at the pub (and awesome craft beer selections) and the tastings at the brewery (especially Blue Point) were way bigger than I was expecting for a tasting. If you are considering booking a tour with Tapped I strongly recommend it!
Just did a bachelor party for my buddy last minute with Kevin. It was awesome! We had a blast! Kevin was great from start to finish. Very accommodating. We are already planning our next trip!
We had the BEST time for my husbands 30th birthday! Kevin the owner and Sal our driver went above and beyond for us. Everyone said they had a great time. I highly recommend using tapped enterprises!
My husband, 11 of our friends and I were lucky enough to have spent a day at the Breweries with Tapped Enterprises for my husband's 30th birthday. The day was PERFECT! Kevin and the T.E. crew were very accommodating and it was clear the #1 priority was making sure everyone had a good time. Mission accomplished! I loved how the payment system was setup so everyone who was attending could pay on their own through a website setup specifically for our event. I loved our bus driver, the way the bus was setup allowing us to play our own music, and all three breweries we visited were great. We particularly loved the Great South Bay Brewery that had a foosball table and a corn hole set which added a nice twist to our last stop. I highly recommend the Beer Bus Tour and our group will definitely remember the great day we had for years to come!
I used Tapped Enterprises this past weekend to celebrate my 30th bday and we had an amazing experience! Not only was our driver Theresa punctual and accommodating to our needs but she was fun and personable! We all had a great time at the vineyards, the price was great and we got there and back safe and sound! Thanks so much for everything! We will def be using them again!
I went on their ski trip to hunter mountain. Everyone and everything was spectacular. The bus driver was really cool, professional yet entertaining. The gourmet food they grilled for us after skiing all day, paired with the endless supply of quality craft beer was killer!! I highly recommend this company for any event. They had it all. Good movies, music, people, breakfast, and lunch. I look forward to the next event. Thank you Kevin.
Great day! We did the east end tour. Kevin was our guide and driver! He was amazing! The price is worth it! We had a great lunch at publik house in Southampton. I am a HUGE craft beer drinker and there was MORE then enough beer. We never had to pay out if pocket. The iPhone music hook up for our bus music was amazing surprise. The cheese platter was great. I thought it would be cheesy ( no pun intended lol) but it was great! The go pro cam was cool but it died before the party really got started. Great time, great food, great beer and awesome memories!
We used Tapped Enterprises for our wedding and it was a great choice!!! While other transportation companies gave me many limitations, Kevin was so accommodating and patient with us! There was a time change and I completely forgot to inform Kevin but his patience, understanding, and willingness to accommodate the change was greatly appreciated!!! He worked with us regarding a trip to the venue for the bridal party and provided multiple trips to the venue and back to the hotel for our guests! In addition, the bus was very spacious and comfortable. I know many of the guests, including the bridal party were pleased with their experience!! Can't thank you guys enough!!!
Fantastic time for my husband's 40th birthday on the beer bus with Sal! Sal, you were great! Always accommodating, but helping us with our plans to go to the breweries my husband was interested in. Everyone raved how awesome the day was! Thanks Sal for making Eric's 40th so memorable for him & all of us!!!!
You're the best-est KEVIN! You definitely know your stuff. Thank you for the great beer tour. This is one of my best experience I had since moving here to LI. He is a chill guy who knows how to give us a great time.
It was good hearing how Tapped Enterprises got started...if you didn't know he went into Finance and he quit one day and the following week he purchased a bus. That take guts to just get up and leave and start fresh, but he is one of many people who can say he loves his job.
This is just the coolest thing....um... EVER!
It's basically like a winery tour bus - BUT - it's for COOL people that like to drink beer! It's a designated driver, taking you to all the kick ass breweries on Long Island - and they get you back to your starting point safely!!!
The guy driving the bus was soooo nice to everyone and really went out of his way to make sure we were having a great time!
I recommend Tapped Enterprises to anyone looking to have a great time drinking brews and enjoying time with their friends!
This was my second time with Kevin on a "Tapped Enterprises" tour bus. Once was a private tour and this time a group event. We went to Orchard Vineyards, Sherwood House, and Long Ireland Brewery. Kevin is extremely personable and very knowledgeable about his stops and the Long Island Beer and Wine Scene.I highly recommend Tapped Enterprises if you're looking for a fun way to tour the Island's resources and not have to worry about being behind the wheel of a car. You know what they say.... Leave the driving to us...
Kevin is great, and so are his tours. This was my second time on a Tapped Enterprises tour, and I have to say, it was a blast. Such a cool concept; I am planning on recommending this to anyone I know looking to have a great time on the island- and SAFELY visit the many awesome breweries we have to offer.
Great experience overall! Bought this for my boyfriend as a birthday gift and he LOVED it! We had so much fun at each brewery and they each gave generous portions for the tasting. We really enjoyed the brewery tour as well. Plus, the burgers were delish! Would totally recommend!
Had an amazing experience with Tapped when I used them for my 25th birthday wine tour. Kevin and Mike were so accommodating. Everyone on the bus was raving about the experience and how much fun they had. I will be booking with Tapped in the future for many more events!!! Highly recommend
We recently used Tapped Enterprises as our transportation service for a bachelorette party weekend in the Hamptons. This included pick up and drop off at JFK, transport to 2 local wineries, a night out in Southampton and transportation to a beach in Montauk. Kevin and his team were awesome! We would definitely recommend them. Thank you for making our experience so enjoyable!
There is nothing bad I could say about Tapped and the individuals who helped coordinate the entire day from pick-up to drop-off.I worked closely with Kevin to organize the day and he handled all the details. We were able to hit up a great winery (which opened early exclusively for us), had a great meal and enjoyed so much beer at Bluepoint.I cannot say anything bad about Kevin, he handled my OCD random questions and was so great with keeping us on time and safe. Customer service at it's finest. Even though the weather couldn't hold out- we had a great time singing oldies on the bus back in the rain. I would strongly recommend Tapped (& Kevin) for anyone looking to explore the wineries & breweries on the island without having to worry about driving. Excellent, excellent, excellent- will definitely be booking again!
We used Tapped Enterprises after researching many companies to commute our group of 30 from Long Island to various vineyards in the Hamptons. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Tapped Enterprises for being so organized and making this weekend adventure the greatest success imaginable! Our group consisted of 30 adults in their mid-20's. Our driver greeted us with the upmost level of professionalism, but we insisted he was comfortable and take is suit jacket off (it had to be 100 degrees outside that day) and join in on the fun.
Our group was mixed 50/50 guys and girls. With that said the guys hoped we could stop at a brewery before the wine tasting began. Tapped Enterprises was so extremely helping working with us to ensure everyone's expectations were met. We first stopped at Great South Bay Brewery. It was a great way to start our tour, it was less than 40 minutes from where we were picked up. Each guest received 4 beer sample tickets. It was very quiet when we walked in but the fun was just beginning. The music was going and everyone was comfortable to either sit at a table, or play games like corn hole. There were many beers on tap so everyone had the opportunity to sample something they would enjoy.
Second stop was at Sherwood House. Here we got to sit outside on a beautiful day while enjoying lunch and some wine. The inside of this establishment is very comfortable. The rooms were decorative and fireplace really made you feel at home. The staff working with us, Kristin, was knowledgeable and helpful with her recommendations. I will defiantly be back in the future with a smaller group to enjoy their cheese platters, oysters and lovely wine selection.
Last was Vineyard 48. It was the right way to end the perfect day with an incredible view where we took loads of pictures. The young, energetic culture of this place was spot on with what we were looking for. Our party hats were on with the fun music room on one end of the venue. They handed out coins to allow us to sample wines. I was upset I did not get to sample the Sauvignon Blac as it was out, but I guess that just means I have to return.
The service provided by Tapped Enterprises was great. I would have never known what places to visit in the Hamptons for this party adventure and they really did a great job planning our visits. They have great relationships with the people they work with to ensure your experience is nothing but the best.. They were aware of timeliness and helped us locate the group upon departure. Communication with this company before, during and after our trip was great. I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone I know, regardless of what kind of experience to the Hamptons you're looking for. THANK YOU!
I have been on several tours with Kevin and Tapped Enterprises, and I never cease to be impressed with how Kevin manages to pull these bus tours/pub crawls together and he does it with style... & with a smile on his face always - he truly has a good time doing what he does and he aims to please every guest on the bus. Most recently I was part of GSB's Sleigh Ryed pub crawl. Nice job again Kevin, I'll be back!

Let me just say WOW!!!!! Kevin the owner is fantastic to deal with. Everything was mapped out with his suggestions. We did Woodside Orchard that had a hard cider tasting room, Jason's Vineyard and Long Ireland Brewery. It was great since we had a mixed crowed so we had something for everyone. Ashley was fantastic as well. The bus was cleaned after each stop we were kept on schedule without feeling rushed. The day could not have gone better. A few people in my party already said they are booking their own family trips. Nothing but great things from this company. Kevin and Ashley made everyone feel like we have been family! We might as well be cousins!!!
Id give 10 stars if I could!!!!
What a great idea! Everyone does those winery tours...and while they're alright, I generally find that I'm waaaaaaaaaay too drunk before the second vineyard (c'mon...its wine, I can handle this) and I'm mysteriously broke after spending a day in some cheesy limo. Enter: Tapped Enterprises. This fella, Kevin, decided that he was sick of the monotonous work like the rest of us fools are stuck in and purchased himself a luxury bus. They do bachelor/bachelorette parties, brewery tours, things of that nature. My first experience (and not last) with them was excellent - we had a designated driver, who knew about the different breweries and beers we were trying (as well as the people who ran them). He brought us to three different breweries on Long Island - Great South Bay, Bluepoint and Long Ireland, with a stop at Hoptron - a new brewhouse in Patchogue thats a definite must-go-to. On the ride between each brewery, we had beer, and music, and games. These guys also hold events, which I think is great. AND I didn't forget my growlers. Boom!
Planned a surprise birthday brew bus tour for my husband. We had 20 people. Everyone raved about the experience. The bus was great, timing at each brewery was perfect. Overall experience was impeccable. Kevin was our driver and friend in the end. I would highly recommend this company to everyone!!!
Absolutely loved this experience. I threw a surprise 30th birthday party for my boyfriend with Tapped Enterprises and Kevin and Nick (our driver) were so extremely helpful and great about it. If you love beer, this is for you. It's a different experience than the usual wine tour. Make sure you eat well before and throughout the tour because you will be getting enough beer to hold you over and outdo your body weight (not a bad thing!!). My boyfriend had a great time, and each guest did as well. It was a celebration that each and every person got to enjoy! I would 200% recommend. Thank you again for your hospitality Tapped Enterprises!
Ever had a hoppin' dance party on Sunrise Highway? No!? Me either, until I discovered Tapped Enterprises! They picked us up at the train station and once the doors opened, bagels, friendly faces and an awesome time were awaiting us. This tour specifically stopped at Woodside Orchids, Sherwood house vineyards and Long Ireland brewery allowing a little something for everyone. Kevin seems to have a great working relationship with local breweries, farms, and wineries. They book tours, parties and even just basic transportation to and from events, lowering the number of DWI arrests for the Suffolk County police! I say bah to all those annoying long island wine limo tours that take you to the least common denominators of alcohol on the north shore (I'm looking right at you, Pindar and Vineyard 48!) and hop on a short bus. Not only is it amazing to love what you do, but to make other people happy while doing it takes your job to a completely different level. Big props to Kevin and Tapped Enterprises for a fantastic time!
We can not thank Kevin enough for one of the best brewery tours we have ever gone on. Kevin from Tapped enterprise is a professional and knowledgeable beer expert.

My friends and I have used tapped two years in a row now and have nothing but good things to say! Sal was our driver and picked us up directly on time, helped us video our friend who we were surprising and was so helpful with anything we needed! He was polite, nice and have nothing but great things to say about him! We all had a great time and would definitely recommend trapped for your next occasion! Thanks again!!
Had the BEST time this past weekend in the Hamptons on my friends bachelorette party thanks to Kevin!! We went to 2 vineyards, had the awesome bus all day and night and had a wonderful time! Kevin was incredibly nice and helpful since day 1 when the planning began up until the end of our trip. Would HIGHLY recommend Tapped Enterprises Inc!! Thanks again!!!!
You can drink on the bus, there is a cooler with ice if you do not have one of your own to bring. The driver was so nice had a lot of information for us and we got great tours of the brewery.No need to bring any money but there is more than enough stuff to buy if you want along the way.
Had an absolutely great time being driven around Long Island on this rolling beer bus on Sunday! How can you not love this? You have a great driver, Kevin, who is very knowledgeable, friendly, fun, and most of all patient to put up with all our drunken shenanigans during this past weekend's Yelp Beer Bus event. The bus itself is clean, comfortable, and has both a tv and dock for playing your Ipod's. It's a great way to get around and taste a lot of beer without having to worry about getting a DWI ! Kevin knows all the routes to some of the best local breweries, and is a big craft beer guy himself. They do many beer tasting events on LI and around the local NY area and have packages available for group trips, or shorter shuttles to the local brew tastings. Check out the website for upcoming beer events and rates. To me, it's totally worth the cost to enjoy a worry free, and safe day, rather than drinking and driving. We hit up Great South Bay, Long Ireland, and Port Jeff Brewing Company. That last stop in Port Jeff on a terrific spring day was just perfect to try some beers and then wander around the town for a bite to eat before heading back to the train station to drop us off. Kevin has a great little biz here that I wholeheartedly endorse. Also, between stops it pretty much became a beer fueled dance party bus with some moves going on that would put some strippers to shame! Yay beer!
What a phenomenal idea - bus tours of local breweries and beer fests!!! Sit back, relax and let Tapped Enterprises do the rest. Kevin is a great driver & host and was super knowledgeable about all the local brewers. Tours of the breweries, tastings, and snacks were included. Tours can be customized to include lunch. Limos and wine trails can be so hit or miss. It's so much better tasting beers and cheaper to fill growlers. I will recommend Tapped to everyone I know, what a great idea!
Extremely professional and timely company that brings beer drinkers to breweries on Long Island and beyond; to ensure that there will be no I in DWI. What a great idea this is and perfect for friends just chilling or getting ready to celebrate something. They really do a great job and are super courteous and know where to bring you. They have their finger on the pulse of the brewer and beer community of Long Island so you can trust that you are in good hands and let them do all the planning. This is really awesome and I cannot wait to ride with them again.
Had a great time and Kevin went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our party was great. I will definitely use their services again and strongly recommend them.
This is a genius idea formed by Kevin, who is the master of designated driving. It takes a lot to deal with drunken assholes but he has got it covered! The bus was comfortable and tricked out with an Ipod dock, and you can bring as much beer as you want to drink on your way to...drink more. There are a lot of different breweries to choose from across the Island, plus some cool stops in between! This is the man's (or awesome woman's) alternative to a typical LI wine tour. Definitely recommend for an awesome bachelor party, birthday party, or just to party!
I booked Tapped for a Bachelorette Party. Our driver, Roman, was polite and arranged everything at each of our stops. Setting up the entire day was easy....especially with the destination suggestions from Kevin. We had the BEST time. I would absolutely book through Tapped again.
I used Tapped over the weekend for my 25th birthday! We rented the bus out for the night. Rick, our driver was great! He was very polite and accommodating the whole night. Booking this trip was also easy and quick. Mike in the office was very helpful! I would definitely recommend booking events with Tapped for any occasion. Thanks guys!!
I booked tapped enterprises for a winery tour for a bachelorette party while we stayed in Greenport. From the booking to the actual day everything went smoothly. Booking was a breeze. The day of the tour the bus arrived on time and driver was texting to let me know of exact arrival time. The girls loved the bus & not having to climb in and out of a limo. A cooler with ice and water was provided as well as cups and paper towels. The driver was great and had us hooked up with our tastings very quickly at each winery. There was no confusion about anything with I have experienced with other companies in the past. We also stopped at the LI vodka distillery which was a nice change from the wineries. The driver also helped us check the bus to make sure we did not leave any valuables on board! I highly recommend this company for whatever your needs are. They are very accommodating and were able to provide the exact itinerary that I was looking for. Other companies were not as willing to accommodate an exact itinerary (there were specific wineries we wanted to go to). Thanks tapped!
You know I went on a limo beer tour, but somehow beer and limos just don't mix.....beer and a short bus? Rock on! One of the best and most amazing parties on wheels! Our driver was chill and laid back and he will make an extra stop if you like. On a limo tour, no detours allowed, lame! Beer bus- hell yeah! Next the proof is in the man himself! Kevin our tour driver was extremely knowledgeable and professional, even better he knows beer! This man's passion for beer prompted him to start Tapped Enterprises and I can completely relate to his story. You can plainly see this passion in his business! Support him and go on a tour, you will be so glad you did!
I went on their ski trip to hunter mountain. Everyone and everything was spectacular. The bus driver was really cool, professional yet entertaining. The gourmet food they grilled for us after skiing all day, paired with the endless supply of quality craft beer was killer!! I highly recommend this company for any event. They had it all. Good movies, music, people, breakfast and lunch. I look forward to the next event. Thank you kevin.
Used Tapped for a Bachelor Party. Kevin was great the whole planning process even though we were a pain and kept changing things. That night our driver Sal was awesome. Everything went smoothly and everyone had a blast and got around safely. Most importantly the bachelor. Thank you again for the great time.
Outstanding experience with Tapped! Mike and Kevin helped every step of the way. Our driver Sal was a blast and accommodated us the entire day. This is my second time with Tapped and it was better than the first. I will absolutely be using Tapped again
Kevin is the owner of this amazing business that safely takes you to different breweries in LI as your party goes bat shit crazy. Seriously. Let it loose, have some heavy duty fun, and blow off some steam in this luxury magic beer bus. Kevin will be there responsibly taking you to some great places, the coolest DD in the world. Tapped Enterprise can help give you a memorable bachelor/bachelorette/for-the-hell-of -it party. There are many tours and events you can participate in such as the Pub Crawl (in which you sample some of the coolest pubs and clubs LI has to offer), Backyard Games (an all day tournament very much like Hunger Games but without the death and blood), and the Brewery Tour (where you sample the concoctions of several breweries on Strong effing Island!).I took part in the Brewery Tour and I had a fantastic time. You start in LI's largest brewery Blue Point where you can enjoy free tastings. From there you move onto Brick House Brewery and Restaurant for more delicious beers. And then you go to the fabulous Long Ireland Beer Company in Riverhead. On my tour we also made a stop to the ultra cool Hoptron Brewery. You're probably thinking, I don't need a bus, I'll just get my frenemy to haul the crew around LI. No. You won't look super fine pulling up in your old Honda. You'll look lame. Be the rockstar that you know you are and drive in style in Kevin's sexy sleek PARTY bus. Emphasis on the PARTY because things will go down in this bus. Beer drinking, music, games, and dance parties. Have a great experience that you will remember for a long time and party with your friends with Tapped Enterprise. You won't regret it.
My friends and I have used Tapped Enterprises for multiple occasions and they are wonderful! We used them for an event this past Sunday and Sal was our driver for the second time. Cannot say enough nice things about him. He's professional, friendly, accommodating and very prompt. Tapped will always be our go to company for events!
Kevin is the man. Not only was he extra knowledgeable about well, everything! But he was also one of the friendliest business owners. He was so incredibly passionate about his job and spreading the wealth! I have to say that my day with Tapped Enterprises was one of the best days I have ever had.
Think winery limo, but for us awesome folk that know that beer is better because beer makes people HAPPY.
Kevin helped turned this adorable bus for beer-drinkers into the ultimate dance party bus.
Thank you Tapped Enterprises for giving us an awesome day around all of the Long Island Breweries, it wouldn't have happened without you!

What a great idea!! Long Island has so many cool microbrews and brew pubs to offer, and being that you'd (of course) want to visit more than one in a day, this is the perfect way to do it.
I was recently part of the 5th Annual Sleigh Rye'd tour hosted by Great South Bay Brewery. The fact that they were the ones hosting was reason enough to get me here. We visited GSB in Bayshore, BobbieQue & Hoptron Brewtique in Patchogue, the South Shore Dive in Sayville, and TJ Finley's back in Bayshore. Free santa hats and a free pint was given at every bar, and not to mention the beer on the bus kept this party rolling!
What an awesome day to try out some different brews, meet some new people, and get from point A to point B safely! Would definitely recommend this and do it again myself!
After being on 2 trips now with Kevin and Tapped Enterprises, I will tell you it is a lot of fun. Kevin is a good guy who bought a bus and now drives drunk people around places. I went on the Yelp elite tour of LI breweries with Tapped, and on the Hunter Mountain ski trip. The tour was great as it was on his bus but Kevin did not get to party as he was driving us around. The other reviews here are about that, but I will write about the Ski trip. This was on a large bus and was sponsored by Port Jeff Brewery and Tap & Barrel both excellent establishments. We were all set with a full 1/2 barrel keg and a 1/6th of Port Jefferson Brew. Me and my friend were drinking beers at 4am on the bus. However, we were not prepared for the animals that got on at Tap and Barrel. They were hilarious and were still partying from the night before. We got a prime parking spot steps away from the lodge. I don't know how Kevin managed that but it was nice! We rode/skied all day and at 3 pm had a huge party in said prime parking spot. I got to drink beer with Mike the owner of PJ brewery the man who made it! There was a full out party going on and I saw some guys come over from Hunter Mountain and I thought we were going to get shut down but they wanted some food! I had so much of that 8% beer that I did not realize that my beer was freezing up as I drank it. Temperatures were in single digits. Probably the first time in my life I had to worry about my beer getting too COLD rather than warm! Overall though this is great. The girls going to wineries in their cat heels and limos are so mid 2000's. Beer buses and craft beer is where it is at!
I planned a 3 location tour with 12 members. I was in direct contact with Kevin for weeks prior to the event. He was able to answer all of my questions and was incredibly patient. The tour was organized and the bus was immaculate. When we arrived at each location they were awaiting our arrival. Kevin was in direct contact with the owner/manager, which made the experience run very smooth. Everyone vowed to make this an annual trip. If you are looking for a reliable business with a personal touch, look no further.
I have to say THANK YOU to Kevin first and foremost for dealing with the insane planning and all the changes that went along with planning my brother-in-law's bachelor party. And second, for the great time that everyone had. Our driver, Brian was so great and he was there to help us with anything we needed all night and kept us on track with the schedule to make sure we hit all the places we wanted and to get us back on time. Alot of my brother-in-law's family and friends live out of state so it was very hard to get answers as to who could make it but Kevin never gave me a problem about every time the number of people changed or i wanted to alter the itinerary. He was so cool about everything and helped me plan the whole night. He set us up with a one-hour open bar and some apps (delicious wings and mozzarella sticks) at T.J. Finley's in Bay Shore. Then we hit Verde, headed over to Mary Carroll's in Babylon and ended the night at The Scene in Commack. Brian had the bus stocked with some sodas and waters and some ice if we needed it. The bus was also really nice and very comfortable. All the guys had a really good time and I would definitely recommend Tapped Enterprises to anyone planning any kind of special outing like this. I will definitely be using them again and I would love to do one of the brewery tours! Once again, Thanks, Kevin and Brian!!!
