Tap and Pour is tapping craft beers in Warner Robins

Craft beer pubs are popping up like wildflowers around Middle Georgia, and they are becoming popular spots for social gatherings. As with many brewpubs, Tap and Pour in Warner Robins offers a variety of select craft beers from stouts and pilsners to ales, porters, and lagers.

Among their 40-plus beers on tap, they feature many craft beers originating in Georgia, including breweries in Atlanta, Kennesaw, Athens, Columbus, Decatur, Greensboro, and the small town of Omaha, on the Alabama border. Tap and Pour also carries a line of novelty brands, such as “Gose beer,” which I found out is an old German-style beer. The name is derived from Goslar, Germany, where it originated.

They also carry a long list of IPAs, which is an abbreviation for India Pale Ale. Unlike Gose beer, IPAs did not originate in India, although the style is over 175 years old. IPAs are a hoppy beer that’s considered to be in a broader category of pale ale.

I had the pleasure of conversing with Robert Kurhajian, an employee at Tap and Pour. He gave me some insight into what Tap and Pour has to offer patrons in the craft brew genre. Kurhajian advised me that the owner, Neal Patel, is also the owner of Bootlegger’s Liquor, located in the same building complex. Tap and Pour has been open since December 2015.The ambiance is nice and appealing with a cozy lounge section where patrons can sip and relax, but there is also seating at the bar for a more sociable experience. Tap and Pour also has an outdoor deck if you prefer to enjoy your beverage and social endeavors alfresco.

Tap and Pour also offers a double-insulated stainless-steel growler which is a little pricier, around $30.00 to $40.00 depending on which size you purchase. They also get growlers on consignment form Southern Growler out of Alabama.When asked about their most popular brands of craft beer, I was informed that Dragon’s Milk, a stout beer from New Holland Brewing Company, is a popular brand. Their most sought-after craft beer is Tropicalia, an IPA from Creature Comforts Brewing Company out of Athens, Georgia. Kurhajian said, “It’s so popular it’s hard to keep it in stock.”
