The Brass Tap Franchise

Beer store

The Brass Tap business model has been designed as a Premium Beer Experience offering a range of 60-80 craft beers on tap, along with more than 300 varieties of imports, local craft beers and a selection of premium wines and cigars. The model also has a distinct focus:

*On local entertainment which creates a unique atmosphere where the vibe is upbeat and casual.
*We blend in a sports element where you won't miss a minute of the action as our HDTV's have all the major sports action.
*When it comes to food, we have a specially designed menu to meet the needs of our guests offering a broad range of items including salty snacks, fresh baked pretzels, our unique pretzel pizzas, Panini sandwiches and more. We are designed to not be a restaurant , however our "kitchenette" with very limited space and mechanical requirements is able to deliver an upscale menu which meets our guest needs.
