(March 8, 2019 – Tumon, Guam) – The Guam Brewery Tap House (The Tap House), Guam’s innovative craft beer and pub concept, officially tapped its first keg this month in Tumon Bay.

“The Tap House is proud to bring delicious and fresh craft beer to Guam that infuses unique flavors that anyone can enjoy,” said Mike Converse, The Tap House’s award-winning head brewer. “I invite craft beer drinkers and enthusiasts to order a paddle or sample all six of our specially designed recipes to discover their favorite flavors. Every few weeks, I’ll be introducing a new recipe that will be freshly brewed in-house and available in small batches.”

Converse added, “We’ve been testing recipes for more than a year to perfect the flavors that will resonate with the tastes of local beer enthusiasts. You don’t have to be a beer connoisseur to enjoy our craft brews. We use the best ingredients that will appeal to the connoisseur, but we brew for the masses. I look forward to meeting Guam’s craft community and talking about flavors that they enjoy.”
The Tap House also offers an extensive menu of tapas, handcrafted burgers, sandwiches and sides, all made with the finest ingredients and infused with beers produced by the Guam Brewery. The dishes were designed to pair well with the Guam Brewery’s craft beers or to be enjoyed at any time.
