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. There are plenty of great menu options served with a cold draft beer, homemade soda, or local fruit infused cocktails.

New Yorker leaves corporate world to open up a brewer and tap room in St. John, Virgin Islands. Great food, great beverages. The root beer rum and root beer soda are awesome. Called R&R. I highly recommend the fish tacos.

Tap Room is where we visit multiple times every trip! Their beer is amazing - food is great - staff couldn't be nicer. I have been going there for 5 years and get to see the same staff every time! (now if they would just get their beer to SC/NC!)

We had been walking around town for awhile and looking for a spot to grab a quick bite, cold drink and A/C. We found this little gem and it did not disappoint.

I like the Tap Room and have eaten there multiple times. They were the victims of a fire in their old location, and are doing the best they can with the temporary dining they have. I had the fish tacos, and although I'd consider going back and having them again, they were not good on this trip. On some trips... More

Had an early dinner here during happy hour. Very good! Great burger, fish tacos, and blackened mahi mahi sandwich. Beers were good as well! Had several on tap and was nice to have a cold one that was in a glass. Enjoyed the root beer and root beer float as well. Wished we had visited earlier in our trip! Good... More

We enjoyed visiting the Tap Room in Mongoose Junction after learning that their prior location burned down recently. My husband got their Island Hoppin IPA everywhere we went on St. John and brought some back to the states with us. The beers were good and so was the food. We tried the fish tacos, and my husband said the blackened... More

My wife and I went in for a reprieve from shopping at Mongoose Junction. The place is currently small (see caveat below), but had ample table space considering. Menu is what you would expect at a pub/bar establishment. Good beer selection and food options. Now the best part....my cheeseburger! I could review cheeseburgers like some people review wines. This one... More

The tap room has moved to a very small, uneventful place. To be fair, we didn't stay and eat or drink. The space was so small and there are so many places to eat and drink on the island that sitting in a small room for a good beer just didn't appeal to us. We will return however when the... More

The have 4-5 house drafts and 4-5 guests drafts. Not a huge selection on tap, but your in St John and most places have zero draft beer. The owners have a great story and are really nice guys. They are currently renovating after a fire...good luck guys, I look forward to seeing your new place when I get back.

We heard about this microbrewery so we stopped in before catching the ferry back to St. Thomas. They are in a temporary location due to the recent fire but that does not impact the great beer and service. Clean room for the bar and the variety beers is great.
