Final Draft Tap House The Latest Craft Beer Addition To Vancouver
Several weeks ago my wife and I attended the grand opening of Final Draft Taphouse in Vancouver, Washington. This new beer bar was created with love by Kimberly Johnson and Mike Bolt, who both have worked at a variety of breweries or craft beer-oriented businesses.
My wife and I first met Kimberly in Bend at the Bend Brew Fest 6 years ago and more recently I met Mike. I always enjoy meeting people who put their time in learning the industry and then go for their dreams. And this was the case for these two.
Located in a strip mall off of SE Mill Plain the taphouse is located in a busy part of SE Vancouver, WA.
Inside the taphouse a beautiful mural stands out showcasing Kimberly and Mike's passions beyond beer.
We are meant to live in community, and we believe in the power of connecting with people. Yes, we serve alcohol and you could say we operate a ‘bar.’ But we believe Final Draft Taphouse is more than that. Our place is a place to connect with each other over a pint and have conversations that matter - from the Final Draft Taphouse's website
Every beer has a story, every person has a story…we believe in the power of stories to connect with each other and to better the world. Sharing stories is how we connect with others and how we learn and grow! - from the Final Draft Taphouse's website
Final Draft Taphouse, of course, offers a varied selection of craft beer including South West Washington breweries like Heathen Brewing, Ghost Runners Brewery, Loowit Brewing and others. Unlike many taphouses they offer a small food selection with staples such as panini ssandwiches, meat and cheese platers and soft pretzels.
