The Franchise

Looking for a great business opportunity in a rapidly expanding market?
The Brass Tap has all the vital ingredients.

The Brass Tap Business Model

The Brass Tap business model has been designed as a Premium Craft Beer Experience offering a range of 60 craft beers on tap, along with more than 150 varieties of imports, local craft beers and a selection of premium wines and cigars. The model also has a distinct focus:

  • On local entertainment which creates a unique atmosphere where the vibe is upbeat and casual.
  • We blend in a sports element where you won’t miss a minute of the action as our HDTV’s have all the major sports action. 
  • When it comes to food, we have a specially designed menu to meet the needs of our guests offering a broad range of items including salty snacks, fresh baked pretzels, our unique pretzel pizzas, Panini sandwiches and more.  We are designed to not be a restaurant , however our “kitchenette” with very limited space and mechanical requirements is able to deliver an upscale menu which meets our guest needs.

Why The Brass Tap?

  • Ultimate Craft Beer Bar Experience
  • Attractive Unit Level Economics
  • An Emerging Category
  • A Unique Vehicle to Start and Grow your Business.
