Tap and Handle Bottlefest

We're opening up the cellar, tapping our finest brews, and shutting down the bar for 100 ticket holders for the first ever Tap and Handle Bottlefest! In addition to the amazing bottle list below (at least a few bottles of each will be poured), we will be pouring every beer we have on tap come September 24. We will be tapping Goose Island Bourbon County 2014, Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA, and pouring everything else on our real-time draft list: http://www.tapandhandle.com/draft-list/

Top 100 Beer Bar in the Country

Tap and Handle was just named to the prestigious Draft Magazine® Top 100 Best Beer Bars in the Country list!

"You want your beer bar to come with a good pedigree? Okay - this one was founded in 2012 by Jeff Willis, formerly of Austin's The Ginger Man, and was bought earlier this year by the folks who run beer magazine Craft Beer & Brewing. That industry expertise is apparent in the Tap & Handle's 74 rotating drafts,  where uber-rare brews like Perennial Abraxas and Hill Farmstead Dorothy are not uncommon finds...the best venue to drink such wonders in all of Choice City." - Draft Magazine®

Join us for a drink to see what makes Tap and Handle one of four Colorado beer bars in the top 100.
