Craft beer fans have yet another option to whet (and wet) their suds-loving whistles with the debut of The Brass Tap (950 N. Congress Ave., 561/413-3782) beer and wine bar in Boynton Beach.
Part of a Florida-based chain with more than a dozen units (and several more slated to open soon), the Boynton Tap takes over the old Shane’s Rib Shack spot. It features some 300 different domestic and imported brews on tap and in bottles, plus a selection of wines and cigars. One-hundred beers are available on tap, including such local favorites as suds from Cigar City, Due South and Funky Buddha.
There’s also a limited food menu that ranges from sammies and burgers to tacos and quesadillas to individual pizzas and chicken wings. Look for live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights too.
Don’t, however, look for The Brass Tap at CityPlace. That Tap is all tapped out, shut down reportedly for not paying rent. And speaking of CityPlace and not paying rent, the mall folks are also said to be after Blue Martini too. Brewzzi, the popular local brewpub, is shuttered, at least for now, following protracted legal maneuvering. Looks like CityPlace is starting to play some hardball.
