The Tap House, a craft beer tap room, will open in mid-August at Heritage Station in downtown Huntington.
The bar will feature a Belgium-style tap house and outdoor beer garden with beers from Europe, craft beers from the United States and a variety of West Virginia beers, according to a prepared release. It will be owned by Jeff McKay, a sociology instructor at Marshall University and one of the organizers of the inaugural Rails and Ales Craft Beer Festival, set for Aug. 17 at Heritage Station.
McKay said he will carry American craft beers from breweries such as Great Lakes, Sierra Nevada, and Southern Tier. European beers will come from breweries such as Ayinger, Weihenstephaner, and Petrus, as well as a wide selection of Belgian Trappist beers.
Patrons also will be able to sample beers from across West Virginia. McKay plans to feature each West Virginia brewery on cask and to tap casks weekly.For more information visit, www.facebook.com/thetaphousewv.
