The Craft Bar features 30 taps and sells about a dozen craft beers in bottles. Worth noting is that Wine World, the beer, wine and spirits specialty store next door to the Craft Bar, lists “between 700 and 800” craft and import beer selections. As part of the Wine World family, The Craft Bar offers something unique in the form of 32-ounce “crowlers.” These are 32-ouncer cans available along the Gulf Coast since early 2016. Crowlers are cans filled and sealed on-site and there is no deposit required, as in the case of glass growlers. The Craft Bar sells an average of 50 crowlers a week, and Hardman recalls one customer who bought 12 of them filled with Oyster City’s Hooter Brown, made with Tupelo honey. The Craft Bar’s gastropub aspect means that regular events involve special pairings of food and craft beer. For instance, there’s even been a Movie Monday event that combined “Jaws” with Lost Coast Sharkinator White IPA.
Offering an abundant amount of unique craft beers, Brass Tap looks forward to serving the season beers of winter, like a Pumking from Southern Tier or a St. Bernardus Christmas Ale, which according to The Brass Tap team, “tastes like a Christmas Tree in a glass”. In addition to a Brew Crew rewards program and regularly scheduled events, Brass Tap also works craft beer into its food menu. There are offerings such as Guinness Bacon Waffles and Seadog Blueberry Ale Waffles, and the menu includes recommendations on how to pair certain dishes with specific beers.
