DC-area residents, visitors to experience beer, wine, premixed cocktails in new way
Self-pour Taphouse Tap99, located just across the main gates of Nationals Park in Navy Yard, has opened. The Washington, DC opening brings to life the concept that owner Jason Cherry, who is a serial entrepreneur and former race car driver, envisioned. Across 2,800 square feet of space, customers will be able to enjoy self-pour tap beer, wine, ciders and premixed cocktails.
Tapp99 customers will particularly enjoy seasonal beverages from local craft breweries and distributors.
“I’m thrilled to bring DC’s first fully self-pour taphouse to the vibrant Navy Yard neighborhood,” said Cherry. “Not only will our self-pour experience translate into shorter wait times, it will allow customers to sample small amounts of a variety of our 99 beverages on tap. We look forward to welcoming Navy Yard residents, visitors and Nats fans alike to experience this unique concept. ”
Expect to indulge in artisan pizzas made in the handcrafted Marra Forni brick oven, as well as other small and shareable plates that include maple buffalo shrimp and tuna poke nachos, for good measure.
Patrons can use an RFID card to activate the electronic self-pour taps of their choosing. Customers are charged by the ounce, meaning they can pour as little or as much of their beverage of choice. Self-pour technology creates a fun, interactive experience for consumers, said the company, and in addition, wait times and touch points with staff are improved.
Cherry is betting that the unique self-pour experience of the 99 taps at Tap99 will be a hit.
