“Great Beer, Great Bourbon, Great Place”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Oh yeah, they have good food too! This place is just great. The location was a bit of a risk, but it seems to have worked out very well in their favor. They have over 42 beers on tap hence the name and what's really tasty are the several Bourbons available and bartenders who not know how to describe the Bourbon but how to pour and serve it.

“The Best Gastro-Pub”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Tap 42 has a rustic atmosphere & warm vibe you would expect to find at a Colorado ski-town. The drink menu is extensive with various local & national craft selections, beer cocktails, & unique drink concoctions. If you're having a hard time deciding on a drink don't hesitate to ask the waitresses for their advice as they are quite knowledgeable and are happy to give you some advice. If your curious to try a new craft brew ask for a taste. They will provide a complimentary small sample taste before you commit to a full pint. Ok now you have your drink I hope you brought your appetite because the food is fabulous! The Prohibition Burger is one of the best hamburgers I've ever had!! Try the brussel sprouts instead of fries, I never new brussel sprouts could taste that good!! Another great menu items is the Quinoa Salad, (my wife's favorite!)

“Nice!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Came here with another couple and sat inside. Loved the ambiance. Food was very good. I ordered the fish and chips. Just wish there was more fish and less fries. The rest of my party ordered the prohibition burger and the veggie burger. They loved it!! Service was great too.

“5 of us enjoyed ALL of our meals.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Met at Tap 42 for a business meeting. Were seated on the patio with a nice fan that kept us very comfortable. Had to pull 2 tables that seated 4 of us together to accommodate us and tap 42 had no problem to make us comfortable. Quickly took our drink orders and delivered quickly. Came back and took orders for lunch and whisked away. All orders delivered 100% perfect and delicious. 2 ordered the prohibition burger and the rest of ordered the Free Range Turkey Burger, sandwich wrap, tuna and watermelon salad and sides of french fries and Brussels sprouts. All were outstanding. Waitstaff very attentive and was an outstanding lunch. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Loved the prohibition burger!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

TAP offers a lot of different bottled and draft beers, of course you just need one of them but I'm sure they will have that one! Their burgers are excellent, fresh and creative! Will go back whenever in the neighborhood. Fantastic servers!
