The Tap Room, our island brewpub, is the home of St. John Brewers and our Virgin Island beers. Serving the largest selection of draft beer in the entire Caribbean. Come relax in our A/C bar or two outdoor patios while enjoying our award winning locally brewed beers and homemade soda. Our new food menu has something for everyone. Try one of our fresh salads, savory barbeque pulled pork sandwich or warm Bavarian pretzels.

This is a laid back bar with football on TV, a number of beers on tap, and some decent sandwiches on their menu. The beer of which we tried 4 of their own brews are honestly not great. Their cider and mango flavoured beer are too fruity. Their summer ale has a lot of the hops taste and their IPA... More

We stopped by for a burger one evening and this was one of the worst meals we had while on the island. The burgers were bland and the side was a sad handful of cheap potato chips.

I agree that the local beer is good (mainly the Summer Ale). We had it in many places around the island. We decided to go to the Tap Room with friends that had been there before, but the experience sucked. We sat down, but had to change tables because the first was pretty dirty. The next was 'less worse' (yet... More

We've been visiting the Tap Room since our first trip to STJ. It's my favorite place to sit down and enjoy a Tropical Mango Ale, which is my favorite on island. Usually crowded, but worth it. Happy to see that the guys are brewing some test batches on island, and really liked the Coffee Stout, and the Hard Cider. Cheers,... More

Yep, The Tap Room is the first outlet for St. John Brewery's products. And it's located in a rather large shopping center, Mongoose Junction. So you can sip away at a cool one while the misses goes shopping. Better yet, why not all stay and partake together. Lots to talk about visiting the island. You can even kick you heals... More

Always like local brews. Was skeptical that a brewery n a small island could produce good beer. Was I wrong!! Not usually a fan of fruity beer (except for Belgians). Broke down and tried the Tropical Mango Pale Ale. WOW! What a nice beer. Subtle hints of fruit done right. Made a return visit before dinner just for a fees... More

Family trip to St John and us kids (all of us almost 30, lol) have a deep love/fondness for locally produced beer/microbreweries. Enter Tap Room. We found out about it after the hubby bought a build your own 6 pack (for only $10 mind you) from the store downstairs from the Tap Room. With that purchase we got a coupon... More

We enjoy going to the Tap Room for the beer and the food, however the bartenders are more interested in talking to each other than waiting on the patrons. We have been there many times, and the bartenders are less than adequate, unfortunately. They definitely need training in customer service.

The tap room is one of the only places on the whole island to get a good craft beer. They also have a wonderful air conditioning system. Cold beer and a cool place to relax out of the sun. I like the Mango best. In addition to their handful of beers thye also have a variety of beers from elsewhere... More
