Made my first of what I hope to be many visits on 4/25/06: Groovy little joint in a redeveloping section of Norfolk. The night I visited, they had 34 quality taps and probably another 60 in bottles, only 4 of which started with "bud" or "miller". The little pizza I had was pretty good, but the hard-to-find taps were even better. Too bad I was driving! Revisit soonest!

A interesting bar to go to down in Norfolk. They’ve got many unique beers that are hard to get including the only Westvleteren that I’ve found in Virginia. Great bar staff that remember who you are even if you’ve only been in there once. Lots of fun, and highly recommended.

Just went back to the Taphouse after about 5 years. Still a bit of a ODU college bar, but a fantastic selection. 32 beers on tap, and many, many more in a bottle. Had my first Westy 12 here! I did not eat, but gputty assures me his burger was great.

Solid beer selection with about 20 taps and 20-30 bottles available. With the demise of the handpump at Bier Garten, the Taphouse now has the only handpump in the area that I know of. Service is average, setting is not bad at all. Food is somewhat inventive, but nothing to write home about generally. People go there for the beer. Good beer bar, and I go there on a regular basis.

Went over the Christmas holiday, sat at the bar, service was great, beer selection was much better than other times i had been here. They had just gotten Westy 12 and 8, Rochefort 6, 8,10, and Rodenbach Grand Cru in. Also had some pretty decent tap selections as well. All in all, not a bad time

While I haven’t been in a while, this place was pretty good. We ended up going here when the Bier Garden was closed. They had a couple of beers on cask, including Smuttynose Old Brown Dog. We ate dinner here and the food was very good. This could have changed since last year, but at the time this place was great. The beer selection was above average and th service was good. Worth hitting up if you are anywhere near the area.
