Patrons duck through an enormous beer barrel in order to enter Taps House of Beer. The entryway hints at the ranks of 90 tap handles and condensation-dappled bottles that wait inside, populating the massive beer list. Customers find a seat at wooden tables or a brown-leather couch in the exposed-brick room, sipping on Delirium Tremens, Chimay, Maui Brewing Company’s Coconut Porter, or Racer 5, an oak-hued IPA infused with the West-Coast sunniness of Cascade hops. From the kitchen emerge pulled-pork sliders and nachos, which are easy to split among friends, unlike the last pizza in a life raft. Flat-screen televisions fill the air with news of football games, the sound punctuated by the chatter of a beer club and the performances of karaoke singers.
