Summer Hours: Taft’s Brewpourium.

Deskey lets us work just a half-day every other Friday throughout the summer. They call it Summer Hours. They’re pretty flippin’ awesome. And they’re back! Today was my first Summer Hours Friday, and we went to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

We had a couple of beers and shared a pizza and some knots with beer cheese. Summer Hour Fridays are the best Fridays. 😀🍕🍻❤️

Loaded tots & knots.

After work this evening we went to Taft’s Brewpourium for a celebratory beer or two with some loaded tots and knots after my six-week post-op checkup

It was a delicious end to a pretty great day. 😀🍻🍕❤️

Sunday Funday.

We went back to Taft’s Brewpourium to watch Michigan take on Rutgers. We hadn’t been to the Brewpourium for a quick minute…

While we were watching the game, we ordered another one of Taft’s New Haven-style apizzas, some of their delicious garlic knots, loaded tots topped with Cincinnati chili and some great Taft’s beers…

Everything was as delicious as always. And Michigan beat Rutgers 62-47! We always have a good time at Taft’s Brewpourium. 😀🍕📺🏀❤️

Taft’s Brewpourium.

Tonight, we met our friends and their kids at Taft’s Brewpourium. It’s been a minute since we were last at the Brewpourium

It was a really fun evening. And it was great to see everyone. 😀🍺❤️

Northside Saturday.

We went back to Taft’s Brewporium for lunch today…

I really like their New Haven-style “apizza…”

We watched some of the baseball and then we watched Michigan lose to Sparty.

It was a really fun day up until the losing part. 😀🍺🍕〽️🏈😕❤️

Taft’s Brewporium.

When we lived downtown, we used to love going to Taft’s Ale House down in OtR, even though we didn’t get there as often as we would like. When we moved to Northside, we noticed that Taft’s had a huge warehouse at the corner of Spring Grove and Mitchell Avenues. We hoped that they had a taproom but no such luck. The warehouse space was just a canning and distribution center. Fast forward a year or so and come to find out that Taft’s is indeed finally opening a tap room in the warehouse. And today was the soft opening of the new Taft’s Brewporium just down the street in Spring Grove Village….

It’s a huge space…

Complete with shuffleboard…

All our Taft’s favorites were on tap…

Taft’s Brewporium also serves food, mainly New Haven-style pizzas. From what I’ve read, New Haven-style pizza is a cross between old-world Neapolitan and New York-style pizza. It uses coal-fired ovens to create a thin, crispy, lightly charred crust. Hey, pizza is pizza. Let’s give it a try…

We couldn’t resist starting with some loaded tots as well…

And we got a 10″ pepperoni pizza. It was delicious!

And with that, we were stuffed. The official Grand Opening for Taft’s Brewporium is next Saturday. It sounds like a pretty fun event

Great beers. Great pizzas and tots. Great place. We’ll definitely be back very soon!

Taft’s Brewporium is a terrific addition to the neighborhood! 😀🍺🍕❤️
