With this upscale beer bar, breadth is key. Offering up to 80 craft beers on tap and an expansive selection of wines and cigars, The Brass Tap is aiming to be a one-size-fits-all establishment, teetering the lines of craft brewhouse, sports bar and live music venue. Self-serve beer taps and high-definition TVs underline the casual vibe of the franchise. Food is not the focus of this chain. The Brass Tap did not build kitchens into the original units, although the chain has since added quick and simple bar bites and menu items.
