Our story

Craft beer, great food, live music, sports.

At The Tap, great beer is what we do best. Each day you’ll find Bloomington’s best beer selection, with 90 hand-selected brews on tap, and our draft menu changes every day. Our brewery is located on site and offers 20 original beers on tap to choose from.  Enjoy a pint of our brewer’s best work in our upstairs bar or in our lower Brew Pub off of Kirkwood Ave. You can even grab a Growler of one of our unique small-batch beers to-go.

In addition to our beers on tap, we have over 400 bottled beers to choose from, featuring a wide variety of craft and import styles from breweries around the world.

If you’re looking for something new, try one of our blended drafts (a combination of two or more draft beers layered together to create a new flavor) or beer shots (a smaller mixed beer concoction with higher ABV) for a remix of flavor. For those who prefer something other than beer, we even have wine, served uniquely on tap.

No matter what you’re drinking, you’ll also find a fresh item from our pub food menu to pair it with. A favorite to accompany your beer is the Tap Fries with 4 house dipping sauces of Beer Cheese, Chipotle Ranch, Parmesan Garlic Aioli and Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Crema. Also, don’t miss the Angus Sliders with melted Brie Cheese and Bacon Jam or share a house made pizza. At The Tap, you’ll find burgers, wings, pizza, tacos, and more in the heart of downtown Bloomington.

The Tap stage features live music in Bloomington throughout the week and many flat screens are always showing what’s happening in the world of sports.

At The Tap, we aim to give you the best beer selection, great food, live music, sports and much more. We hope to see you tonight.
