The Brass Tap Expands Franchise Opportunity

TAMPA, Fla. - Feb. 18, 2013 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // -- When Beef 'O' Brady's acquired the rights to franchise The Brass Tap in June 2012, Chief Development Officer James Walker had an incredible idea; open The Brass Tap in airports.

Now, less than one year later, The Brass Tap, the emerging franchise known for its more than 300 craft beers, premium wines, live music and extravagant cigars, has launched a new venue prototype exclusively for airports. To introduce the new airport-specific franchise opportunity to prospective entrepreneurs, executives from The Brass Tap will exhibit at the ARN Revenue Conference and Exhibition in booth 131 in Las Vegas from Feb. 24 -- 26, 2013.

Founded in Tampa, The Brass Tap is best known for highlighting local breweries through ongoing promotions and tasting events, rotating its vast taps regularly and for making hundreds of unique bottled beers available for carry-out. New to The Brass Tap airport locations will be a decadent food menu including the likes of goat cheese and prosciutto salad, marinated olives and Spanish manchego cheese, stout chili and much more.

"The Brass Tap has an incredibly unique position in the marketplace at airports, and its business model and unit-level economics make the franchise opportunity attractive and practical for investors who want to operate their own business," said James Walker, chief development officer of The Brass Tap. "We are fully committed to opening several airport locations across the country in 2013 and beyond."

With five open locations, The Brass Tap will open 14 additional units by 2014. For more information about The Brass Tap franchise opportunity, visit
