Though the staff at The Brass Tap take beer very seriously, they've nevertheless turned drinking it into a game. Customers get a single point for each of the pub's 300 craft beers that they try. At certain milestones, they'll receive gift cards or a t-shirt with a new title, all the way from rookie to beer guru?and, if they conquer the challenge three times, they can win the coveted Repeat Offender 900 shirt.
Thankfully, the bar makes it easy to sort through its 300 beers. The menu is divided up into different beer types, which go deeper than the basic delineation of ale vs. lager vs. water that's been dyed amber. Guests can peruse listings of bottled barleywines and porters, or have a resident beer aficionado fill their mug with an imported brew on draft. Beer even permeates the food: the chipotle mustard on the house-baked pretzels is made with pale ale, just as the cheese dip is made with Samuel Adams. All of the burgers, sandwiches, and pretzel pizzas also have recommended drink pairings.
As for entertainment, each Brass Tap books a variety of local bands throughout the week. Trivia, bingo, and happy hours find regular spots on the schedule, and some locations have outdoor patios and cigars for purchase.
At Koozie's Sports Pub, the clack of pool balls commingles with the clink of beer mugs and the laughter of friends and neighbors. Guests sip on domestic and imported beers and snack on loaded fries or nachos before digging into entrees main dishes of Cuban sandwiches, burgers, wings, or Friday-night fish fries. Throughout the week, the bar hosts entertainments such as karaoke, pool tournaments, or TV broadcasts of Miami sports games' thrilling commercials.
It's not exactly 100 bottles of beer on the wall?in fact, it's more than three times that. Sourced from locations scattered across the globe, The Brass Tap boasts more than 40 brews on tap and hundreds upon hundreds of bottled craft beers. The selection ranges from Chimay Cinq Cents Tripel, a Belgian White imported straight from Baileux, to local brews like Cigar City's citrusy Jai Alai IPA. The drinks pair nicely with the down-home decor and toe-tapping lineup of musical acts, as well as the menu of premium cigars, sourced from places like Nicaragua, the Dominican, and Milton Berle's old sport coats.
