Tap and Handle was founded in 2012 by Jeff Willis, who cut his teeth in the beer bar business at Austin, Texas institution The Ginger Man before relocating to Colorado where he was part of the launch team for Backcountry Pizza in Boulder. In the years since, Tap and Handle has received numerous awards, from the Coloradoan’s award for “Best Beer Bar” to recognition as one of Draft Magazine’s Top 100 Beer Bars in the country. Willis has returned to Austin to ply his craft beer trade again, and Tap and Handle’s new ownership, led by Katie Davis and Andrew Fitzgibbon, continues the legacy of showcasing the absolute best that craft beer has to offer.
