The Brass Tap Austin Reopening in The Triangle
Sixteen months after closing its doors in The Domain, The Brass Tap Craft Beer Bar has found a new home in familiar territory. The Florida and Texas taproom chain is reopening at 815 W 47th St, Suite 103 later in August. That space was occupied by Flying Saucer Draught Emporium for just over a decade. After Flying Saucer shut down in December 2017, the 4,800-square-foot taproom sat unoccupied for almost five years.
Familiar Spaces, Familiar Faces
According to Brass Tap’s Marketing leader Jaye Blankenship, the former Flying Saucer was “the perfect spot for our relocation.” The beer bar was forced to relocate after their lease at 10910 Domain Drive was terminated by their landlords last April. The new location is owned by Steve Sheets, who also owns and operates the bar’s Round Rock outpost. The bar will offer more than 150 beers, including 63 taps. In addition to beer, the Brass Tap will have a full bar with “a large selection of choice bourbons and whiskeys.” The taproom will also have a food menu with wings, pizza, burgers, and tacos, as well as gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. For entertainment, the space has a 14-foot projector screen and additional TVs. Blankenship also mentioned that the new location will eventually host trivia and music bingo.
