Tap’d, a craft beer taproom, will open in Ventura early September

LAKE FOREST, CA – July 23, 2018 – “Something new is pouring into Ventura!”

Tap’d, a craft beer taproom, will open its doors early September 2018. It will be the first and only self-serve taproom using iPourIt self-serve technology in Ventura, California. iPourIt will install a beer wall consisting of 43 self-serve taps.

Co-Owner Sean Ardoin first discovered the self-serve model when he visited Pour Taproom in Santa Cruz, Calif. in June 2017. Ardoin partnered up with his uncle-in-law and owner of American Plastic Corp., Robert Washington, also CEO of Tap’d. Within a few months of the idea conception, Washington contacted iPourIt.

“After the initial conversation with iPourIt, I knew we had to move forward,” said Washington.

To complete the Tap’d team, Washington and Ardoin recruited culinary chef Matt Burin and technology guru Melvin Nunnery. Their biggest contributor, Mark Covarrubias of FM Covarrubias Construction, is responsible for creating a visual concept and construction plan that is sure to make this project unique.

Tap’d will offer 43 local and regional craft beers and wines while serving a fast-casual menu with a gourmet twist. The menu will consist of gourmet items with the finest ingredients, such as their Shrimp Sliders with a citrus coleslaw, Balsamic Thinly Sliced Prime Rib Salad, The Quebec Special Flatbread Pizza, Portobello Mushroom Burger, and more.

Vice President of iPourIt, Darren Nicholson says, “iPourIt is excited to bring a new and unique concept to Ventura. Robert and Sean are intelligent entrepreneurs who know the ins and outs of business operations, and they have a passion for their community. We look forward to growing the business with Tap’d.”

The 43 self-serve taproom is located on Main Street in the heart of Downtown Ventura.
