Katie Davis and Chris Schafernak
Tap and Handle was named to the prestigious Draft Magazine® Top 100 Best Beer Bars in the Country list!
Tap and Handle was founded in 2012 by Jeff Willis, formerly of Austin's The Ginger Man, and was bought by Katie Davis and Andrew Fitzgibbon in 2016. Just recently, we have been fortunate enough to add Chris Schafernak, a long-time bartender and manager of Tap and Handle as a co-owner. We welcome his expertise in the industry, which will continue to be apparent in the Tap & Handle's 74 rotating drafts, where rare and amazing craft beers like Toppling Goliath Mornin’ Delight, Perennial Abraxas and Cantillon are not uncommon finds, just to name a few.
Join us for a drink to see what makes Tap and Handle one of the best beer bars in the country.
