“We want corn dogs. We want corn dogs!” chanted the crowd in front of the kitchen.
Two security guards blocked the entrance. Soon a lady entered from the kitchen, holding a tray of corn dogs – hot dogs covered in battered flour.
And the riot began.
Women shoved in front of women. Men over extended their arms, capturing two or three corn dogs.
It was madness.
Well, that must have been expected when these beer paramoures had food craving hours later after drinking…
This was my first-time experience at NY Tap Fest. Usually, when I hear the words “beer” and “festival,” I’d imagine a mosh pit of brawls.
However, it was the opposite. Men were smiling and laughing and even permitting me to pass or holding the doors open. Overall, everyone was merry.
Besides the corn dog riots and lively drunks, mini shops, such as organic made foods, soaps, sweat shirts, barbecue sauce, covered the festival as well.
All in all, the NY Tap Fest provides unlimited samples of brews ranging from sweet to sour to strong to spicy flavors with All-American Food, of course.
The festival welcomes eating, boozing, and socializing.
