Beer comes in all shapes and sizes, and at The Brass Tap in Myrtle Beach, they celebrate all of it. Dozens of taps line the wall behind the bar, many of which are changed regularly if not on a daily basis. More beers are available bottled, and of course there are wines and liquors so every drinker should find something they enjoy here.
The restaurant’s available drinks for the day are given on a drink menu and are separated by beer type, so guests can easily find their preferred brew or find something to compliment a dish. For instance, customers who prefer something light will find those beers listed under pale ales or pilsners. Brass Tap of course doesn’t ignore IPAs or stouts, and also offers a few fruit and spice beers.
Just like their beers, The Brass Tap also has a variety of food, most of which can be described as pub grub. There are burgers, tacos, wings, pretzels, even pizza on pretzels. Some customers who want to get the most of their experience may decide on a dish first before matching a beer to it, or vice versa.
The menu begins on the lighter side, with popular choices like the shareable appetizers, pretzels, flatbreads, and small plates leading the way. For something more filling, their burgers are ½ a pound of angus beef and come with fries, as do the bar’s large plates and sandwiches.
To sample an array of The Brass Tap’s cooking, the combo appetizer is a good place to start. This shareable comes with pot stickers, southwest chicken eggrolls, and tempura shrimp, plus three sauces to mix and match tastes with. All three made great finger foods, with just enough crunch on each exterior to compliment the interior. The shrimp was especially enjoyable when dipped in the sweet chili sauce, which had more of a kick than it let on.
The Brass Tap offers daily specials throughout the week to encourage guests to come back, and not just for the beer. Lunch time offers a Tap Two option for $8.99 where customers can choose a side to go with half of an entrée. The bar is also very popular on the weekends, when they have their brunch special until 3p.m., cooking up breakfasts like waffles and paninis along with suggested beers and breakfast cocktails.
During the week, Happy Hour lasts from 4-7 p.m. with $1.50 off all drafts, $3 house wine and vodka, and their shareables for half off, all of which makes the prices more reasonable. Tuesdays are popular, and not just during Happy Hour, with $2 tacos and $4 margaritas all day. The Brass Tap also regularly hosts fun events like trivia nights, live music, and game day specials, making this a great place for friends to spend time together.
The servers do try to keep up with the bar and the tables, both inside and out, but there might still be a small wait. Between all the beers to peruse, food to try, and events to partake in, there is a lot to tap into at this bar.
