TUMON, Guam—The Guam Brewery Tap House, Guam’s innovative craft beer and pub concept, officially tapped its first keg this month in Tumon Bay.
The Tap House serves specialty brews designed by award-winning head brewer Mike Converse.
The Tap House unveiled six of its proprietary recipes—Guam Gold Cream Ale, Tumon Bay Hoppy Blond, Old Hagåtña Honey Rye, Island IPA, Mansanita Amber Ale, and Paseo Porter—and previewed its first freshly brewed small batch of the Paseo Porter during a soft opening this month for friends, family, and trade partners.
All recipes have been awarded the Guam Product Seal.
“The Tap House is proud to bring delicious and fresh craft beer to Guam that infuses unique flavors that anyone can enjoy,” said Converse. “I invite craft beer drinkers and enthusiasts to order a paddle or sample all six of our specially designed recipes to discover their favorite flavors. Every few weeks, I’ll be introducing a new recipe that will be freshly brewed in-house and available in small batches.”
Converse in a nationally recognized head brewer who has won numerous awards for his craft beer recipes. Converse learned the art of brewing from a true brewmaster revered in the craft beer world as a master of the craft.
“We’ve been testing recipes for more than a year to perfect the flavors that will resonate with the tastes of local beer enthusiasts,” said Converse. “You don’t have to be a beer connoisseur to enjoy our craft brews. We use the best ingredients that will appeal to the connoisseur, but we brew for the masses. I look forward to meeting Guam’s craft community and talking about flavors that they enjoy.”
The Tap House also offers an extensive menu of tapas, handcrafted burgers, sandwiches and sides, all made with the finest ingredients and infused with beers produced by the Guam Brewery. The dishes were designed to pair well with the Guam Brewery’s craft beers or to be enjoyed at any time.
“Craft beer and craft food enthusiasts are going to love the Tap House concept. I guarantee you’ll walk in for Guam’s freshest craft brew and end up staying for our delicious food by Chef Jared Preuc,” said Mark Stotts, general manager of the Tap House. “Everyone will enjoy our easygoing, warm Håfa Adai vibe.”
Stotts added, “We have tasting guides for anyone who wants to learn more about our recipes and craft beer in general, to include the special batches brewed here at the Tap House. We’re here to enlighten anyone’s craft curiosities.”
Phillip Bamba, one of the owners of the Tap House, said, “We’ve been brewing this innovative concept for a few years now. The Tap House and our brews represent the best of our island and culture to the world. Our line of craft beers is meant to delight our customers from start to finish and leave a lasting and positive representation of our people and our Håfa Adai spirit. We are proud of what we created and invite everyone to experience it.”
