We got there too late for dinner, but the menu looked very tasty. Very nice ambience in an old brick building in a cool little downtown neighborhood. Very homey feeling at the bar with a view of the breweryís guts through a window on the side. Brian, our bartender, went above and beyond the call of duty answering questions about the beer, Massachusetts, New England, pronunciation, and a myriad of other matters. He was a pleasure to talk to and if I lived in Haverhill, I know that The Tap would be where my butt would be parked in most of my free time.

Located on a pretty cool street in downtown Haverhill, The Tap aka Haverhill Brewery is easy to find once you get parking which is on street. As you walk into the establishment you walk by the bar which is loaded with beer paraphernalia. The wood bar is filled with locals, possibly regulars, the atmoshpere is cozy and inviting, very nice. The main dining room has a brick interior, exposed pipe, fans and very high ceilings with pressed tin. As we walked in the place was half empty on a saturday night around 8:45, we sat down to eat and I ordered the cask, "what is a cask" my waitress asked I tell her what it is and she still doesnít know what Iím talking about so I order a regular pint. A few mintues later she comes back and tells me she ask the manager what a cask ale was and that it would be tapped that friday, so I was happy she asked. Besides that she was very friendly and a great waitress. I ordered the burger and fries to go with my Leatherlips IPA which was nice, and my wife had the wild mushroom ravioli which she paried with the pumpkin ale and all the food and beers were great. The prices are good, for entrees, desserts, and beer overall. I definitely with be heading back again.

They donít get any better than this ! The beers brewed onsite are served from the maturation tanks and are amazing, In my opinion the people from Cologne Germany would like this bar as the beers are Fresh &; and tasty. Food is great, the service and friendliness unmatched. They should have their Altbeer on now and it was a super sample when I tried it a couple of weeks ago, albeit not entirely ready, but the brewer offered me a taste, just because I had seen its label on the maturation vessel when I headed for the return station. Location is oposite the T Station, accesible from Boston North Station.

Very cool cobbler theme to the whole place, clean, good service, good food, and good beer. Great/unique selection of some more non-traditional styles. More than just your typical IPA/Amber/Pale/Porter brewpub. Cool location, and a historic town to boot. Excited to try some cask offerings on Friday night.

Nice brew pub close to the station, great outside terrace where you can watch the world go by on sunny days. Excellent beer (especially the Leather lips IPA) good food and service.

Beautiful location. The food was excellent along with the beer. The beer selection was limited to the 8 locally brewed on tap.

From what I saw Haverhill is a pretty ugly little town but the pub is located in what appears to the nice downtown ďtouristyĒ strip. Donít drive around like we did looking for a parking on the street, thereís parking in the back. Inside is pretty nice clean pub. The huge back patio sits over 100. Overall the pub is surprisingly nice and big for such a below-the-radar little town. Food ranges from basic burger/pizza to more elaborate dishes. Most meals are in the $10 to $20 range. I had a quesadilla and the girlfriend had a seafood plate and we were both very satisfied. Selection when I was there was 8 housebrew taps. Haverhill Brewery make some fine brews, from very light session beer to strong Belgian ale. This is a good brewpub and most beer you drink there will range from good to excellent. Good service. They sell a few bottles to go. This place is definitely worth a little detour.

Firstly, The Tap is in Have-rill, not Haver-hill. The passerbys that were asked for directions look at me askance initially with my New Yawk delivery. I guess itís a Peabody pronunciation thing. Anyway, finally got here and the beer did not disappoint. The food was fine, just the normal bar food fare and the service was friendly and accomodating. I would definately go back if the opportunity arose.

Iíve been here about a dozen times since itís opening , though Iíve bene about 8 times within the last 4 months. Really love this place, canít say enough about how great it ties into downtown, great river view from the deck, inside is old world converted manufactoring mill with lots of wood and cool fixtures. Food is always solid and goes beyond traditional pub fare. Beer has always been great even though theyíve had three brewers in the past 3 years..that said all 3 brewers are fantasic in their own right.Great place, wish I lived closer.

We visited The Tap on a nice sunny day and got to sit on the rear terrasse that gave a nice view on the Merrimac river. The food was decent and the service was good. Now the beer, the brewpub had 8 beers on tap including the main attraction : the Leatherlips IPA which is very good. This place is definitely worth a visit once in a while.
