It’s one of my favorite events of the year. It’s Hat City on Tap, and it’s happening on Saturday March 25th at the Danbury Ice Arena.

Why is it one of my favorites? Well, where else can you sample all the craft beer you want for three full hours at one low price? Plus, if you’d like an extra hour of fantastic beer sampling, then for a small upgrade fee, you can become a VIP and get four hours of sampling.

Now, how many beers can you really drink in that time frame with a sampling glass? Let’s try and do some math. Each sampling glass is three ounces. A bottle of beer is twelve ounces. That means that four samples equals one full beer. Most people can go through four sample glasses in a matter of minutes, so that would mean that in say five minutes, you would have finished one bottle of beer. You still have two hours and 55 minutes left to drink. That’s a lot of beer!

At our last Hat City on Tap event, I tried to get an idea of how many beers people drank. As you can see in the video below, the answer was not that easy to come by:
