Self-serve taproom Tap That opens in downtown Phoenix
PHOENIX — A new kind of brew pub experience has opened along Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix.
Tap That Downtown, located at 909 N. Fifth Street, is a self-serve taproom offering a constantly rotating selection of 35 craft beers and wines from Arizona breweries.
Patrons will be given a device with RFID technology created by iPourIt that can activate the taps and track each person’s tab. Screens at each tap show how many ounces have been poured.
“We can use iPourIt’s data to fine-tune the selection on our tap wall and make sure our guests have the experience they’re looking for,” co-owner Roshiem Austin said in a press release.
“The inventory tracking is the piece that I use the most. I use it to keep up the movement of the beer and purchasing. It really helps me stay organized and keep the wall stocked with a unique and eclectic offering.”
A weekly top-10 beer leaderboard will be posted on the taproom’s social media accounts so guests can see which beers have been poured the most.
The restaurant features a full menu of pub fare, including poutine with stout gravy and soft pretzels with IPA cheese. It also plans to host events such as live music and Paint & Sip nights.
Tap That is open Monday-Thursday from noon-10 p.m., Friday from noon-2 a.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 a.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
