On tap – Taproom opens in Kirkwood
A crowd-funded coffee and beer bar has opened its doors in Kirkwood.
Taproom Coffee announced via its Facebook page that it opened today, April 29.
The announcement says, “So the city surprised us yesterday by letting us walk away from City Hall with our business license! Since we’re legal now, we’ve opened our doors with a limited menu. If you can’t stand to wait any longer and must visit to see what we’ve done with the place, please come by! We’re open full hours from 7 AM – 10 PM. But please be patient with us – we still don’t have our alcohol permit or our more substantial food offerings. But our coffee/espresso menu is fully available and we’ve got a baked goods order from Mae’s Bakery coming to fill the shelves in a couple hours. There are 40 bar and table seats to go around, wi-fi, outlets, and smiling faces.”
Taproom is located at 1963 Hosea L. Williams Drive in Kirkwood.
Founder Jonathan Pascual raised money via a Kickstarter campaign to cover most of Taproom’s startup costs. The restaurant received around $20,000 in donations. Pascual got the idea for Taproom when he observed that people who loved craft beers also tended to be people who loved specialty coffee, and vice versa.
