The Taproom Takeover

A taproom can be a great asset to any brewery. Not only does it provide a place for customers to come and try your beer, but it can also be used as a venue for events, a retail space, and a source of income. However, opening a taproom is not as simple as just putting out some tables and chairs. You need to do a few things to ensure your taproom is successful.

Taprooms and Takeovers

People often have difficulty telling the difference between a taproom and a brewpub. To put it simply: A taproom is a place where people can go to drink beer brewed on-site. A brewpub is a place where people can go to drink beer from multiple breweries and eat food. Sometimes a taproom will feature a unique selection of beers from another craft brewery for a limited time. This is known as a taproom takeover.

The taproom industry accounts for 8 percent of beer production volume in the United States. And the industry continues to grow after a slight decline a few years ago. So taproom takeovers are an excellent example of how local companies can team up for the mutual benefit.

More Beer, More (Storage) Problems

As the popularity of craft beer continues to grow, so does the need for storage for taprooms and beer lovers alike. But with so many options on the market, it can be hard to know which is correct. The more beer a bar wants to offer, the more storage problems it will run into.

High-quality keg racks are essential for walk-in coolers and supply closets for a taproom because they ensure that the kegs and other supplies are properly stored and organized. This prevents potential accidents and makes finding the supplies you need easier.

Of course, supply shortages are one of the biggest challenges facing taprooms and breweries these days. Supply chain shortages affect the craft beer brewing industry by causing a lack of hops, grain, and barley, key ingredients in beverages. The deficit is caused by a combination of factors, including bad weather in vital hop-growing regions, increased demand for craft beer, and a decrease in the overall supply of barley and wheat due to the Russo-Ukrainian War. This has led to higher ingredient prices, leading to higher costs for craft beer.
