WheatonArts traces its roots back to 1888 when Dr. Theodore Wheaton first began his glass empire that expanded into 41 factories nationwide. The historic venue has since garnered a reputation as the center of commercial glass manufacturing in the United States.

“For one day, two great American crafts come together for the inaugural ‘What’s on Tap’ Craft Beer Festival,” said Monterosso. “Just as a craft brewer spends much time and care formulating the perfect beer recipe — so too does a master glass blower."
