Welcome to the Neighborhood: Minneapolis, AND Nashville Edition!

Maybe you’ve heard us ramble excitedly once or twice (sorry not sorry) that the thing we’ve been most pumped about over the past year or so here at TapRm is our growth. When your mission is to get more high-quality, well- and thoughtfully-made craft beverages into more hands with greater ease and access, it stands to reason that entering new cities and new markets would, happily, make that goal happen. It feels like all the time, TapRm is rolling into a new city and making it fun and effortless for the folks there to access an incredibly wide range of adult beverages in a simple click. 

Beer geeks, hard seltzer enthusiasts, canned cocktail connoisseurs, hard cider lovers, hard kombucha fans, and more in Denver, Minneapolis, and Nashville can now get their favorite brands and new brands to discover delivered to them through TapRm. Cheers to TapRm steadily going nationwide! 

To celebrate, we’re saying an official “hello and how do you do?” and introducing some exciting brands available in each city. Think of it like TapRm strolling around the cul-de-sac and greeting the neighbors, only instead of an unidentifiable casserole, we’re bringing beer.

Denver Beer Co.

It’s our duty as Denver citizens to truly represent, right? And what better way to do that than with Denver Beer Co.? It’s waving the Denver flag, and it’s more than living up to the high expectations for stellar craft beer that exist in Colorado. Denver Beer Co. has a taproom that makes for an ideal Saturday hang, but what about snow days, or sick days, or last-minute needs, or impromptu get-togethers, or gift needs, or…well, you get the idea, really any occasion? TapRm’s got you with fast and easy Denver Beer Co. delivery. One of our current favorites is the Graham Cracker Porter. Crack this can open and you’re instantly sitting around a campfire making s’mores. It’s outdoorsy in vibe, warming in feel, and absolutely delicious in aroma and flavor, thanks to smoked cedar, vanilla, chocolate, mulling spices, and fig notes.

Hooch Booch

What if you’re less into beer? What if you want something lighter? What if you want to try something new and different? What if you can’t get enough of the funk of kombucha? It’s your lucky day, because we’ve got one of the best examples of hard kombucha out there, and it’s from right here in Denver. Hooch Booch is generating serious buzz, so you’re going to want to get to know this brand if you haven’t yet. It’s new, born in 2020, and making a splash with Jazz Age attitude, not to mention its incredibly flavorful yet easy-drinking hard kombucha inspired by cocktails. The Old Fashioned Hard Kombucha is a perfect introduction. It’s got hints of orange peel and cherry, just like its namesake classic.

Station 26 Brewing Co.

One of the many, many, many great things about living in Denver is the absolute embarrassment of riches when it comes to craft beer. It’s an absolute haven for brilliant brewers whipping up everything from pitch-perfect, traditional staples to innovate, experimental creations. When it comes to capturing the Denver beer scene in a selection we can bring right to your doorstep, it’s honestly just too fun to get to work with breweries like Station 26 Brewing Co. and include them in our repertoire. Station 26 flexes its diverse skill set by brewing everything from lagers to IPAs. A fantastic example of the brewery’s prowess is the Tangerine Cream. It’s a crushable cream ale elevated with tasty and nostalgic creamsicle notes, courtesy of tart tangerine and sweet vanilla.

Stem Ciders
All this talk about Denver beer certainly doesn’t leave other drink categories out in the cold. Denver boasts so many different options done brilliantly. One example is Stem Ciders. Stem takes traditional cider and interprets it with inspired flavors that are unique, thoughtful, refreshing, and easy-drinking. Think everything from a classic, crisp apple to a tart-yet-sweet raspberry. A real standout is the Chile Guava. With a base of off-dry apple cider, this tipple bursts with tropical guava, and then heats up with the smoky spice of guajillo and ancho chiles.

It’s never been easier to toast Minnesota pride. Boom Island Brewing Company is based in Minnetonka, where it crafts pitch perfect iterations of time-honored Belgian styles. Boom Island’s expert techniques combine complex styles with easy-drinking, refreshing characteristics. These beers are instant favorites, and the Witness Wit witbier with orange peel and chamomile is a must-have example.

Steel Toe Brewing 

Another local gem! Steel Toe Brewing is based in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, and they’re a community-minded brewery--you never know what kind of fundraiser for what great, worthy cause you might run into at their taproom. The beers are good as their heart is big, too. For proof, order up on the Size 7 IPA, bursting with citrusy hop bitterness, flavor, and aroma.

Bent Paddle Brewing Co.

Wherever you are in Minneapolis, you can experience the best the entire state of Minnesota has to offer without leaving the comfort of your living room. Case in point: Bent Paddle Brewing Co. from Duluth.

The Bent Paddle Classic is a cream ale that will please all palates, and it’s ideal for every kind of occasion in every season. And the Bent Paddle Black is an exciting hybrid of a stout and a porter, chocolatey, roasty, and smooth.

Spiral Brewery

Another example is Spiral Brewery, a must-visit brewery located in lovely, historic Hastings. Spiral Brewery is another brewery that prioritizes community, and boasts a happening taproom--you can expect everything from live music to animal adoption events. Best of all, of course, is the beer! Expect iconic beer styles with fresh twists, like different interpretations of IPAs. Start with the crowd-pleasing Downward Spiral IPA, with notes of grain, citrus, and hop bitterness.

What’s On Tap in Nashville

Comin’ atcha,’ Music City! We know you know how to have a good time in Nashville, and if you live in the green zone in the image below, TapRm can help that good time with easy beverage delivery.

Now for some order inspiration!

Jackalope Brewing Company

Let’s kick things off with some hometown pride. Nashville has such great breweries right in its own backyard, you really don’t have to look too far to find an embarrassment of riches in terms of options and quality. And we’re especially psyched about Jackalope because it’s truly an integral part of Nashville’s craft beer scene. Co-founder Bailey Spaulding and the Jackalope team helped grow the beer community, working to change legislation like ABV caps and high taxes--as Bailey pointed out in a TapRm interview, Nashville already almost had it all, from music to culture to food to fun. The only thing missing was the beer! And ever since 2011, Jackalope has been doing its part to fulfill that need with creativity, skill, and an emphasis on quality. There’s something for everyone, from bitter, floral, citrusy IPAs to smooth yet roasty mocha stouts.

Bearded Iris Brewing

Bearded Iris Brewing is another VIP in the Nashville beer scene. Since 2016, this brewery has been wowing locals and tourists alike with big, bold, flavors in the form of beautifully crafted beers, from the crispest of lagers to the fruitiest of sours to the hoppiest of IPAs. And friends, we’re proud to offer “the one that started it all”: the Homestyle IPA. Brewed with oats and mosaic hops, this IPA is lush and silky, balanced by a kick of citrus and tropical fruit. And it all clocks in at a respectable 6% ABV, helping make it the kind of IPA you’ll want to reach for no matter the occasion.

Blackberry Farm Brewery

It doesn’t get much more truly Tennessee than Blackberry Farm, brewing up beers that capture the terroir of the region. Located in Maryville, Blackberry Farm focuses on traditional, often Belgian-inspired beer styles that allow them to harness the unique wonders of ingredients grown right on the farm. Think rustic styles like saisons and foeder-aged farmhouse ales elevated by creativity and lovingly harvested ingredients. For example, there’s the BFB Berliner Weisse, a bready yet tart 4.6% brew with notes of citrus and ginger, brewed with Tennessee wheat and Blackberry Farm’s custom Tennessee barley malt.

Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co.

Of course, one of the exciting features of TapRm is that you can also get the very best beer that entirely other regions have to offer without venturing outside! Here, we’re staying in the south but heading over to Charleston, South Carolina to check out Edmund’s Oast. Edmund’s Oast has been making waves among beer fans with its eclectic style range--from stouts to sours to blonde ales to IPAs, it seems there is no sort of beer that EO can’t bring to life with expert balance and irresistible flavors and aromas. How about the Sour Apple, which is, you guessed it, a sour made with apples? There’s also a Cherry Pineapple Sour and the Sour Cranberry, too. Or, how about the Breath of Nebula IPA, or the dreamy Maple Coffee Cream Brown Ale?

Shacksbury Cider

If cider is more in your wheelhouse, never fear--TapRm has you covered. We’re bringing you the very best the cider world has to offer, with Shacksbury all the way from Vermont. Shacksbury is just synonymous with the crisp, forever-autumn vibes of cider, always both fresh and refreshing, not to mention flavorful and delicious. The Arlo is about as classic as it gets. A take on Basque cider, it’s complex yet easy-drinking, and mixes New England ingredients with European apples for a cider that’s a little different, and feels like an instant trip around the world.
