As kids, we just wanted to do cool grown-up things like writing checks and driving cars. Now that we're grown-ups, we just want to do cool bartender things like use taps. Brewport Tap House in El Segundo lets us indulge our desires. Provide a credit or debit card and get a wristband preloaded with credits. Then pick your beverage spigot, tap the sensor and get the sip you want (in the quantity you want). Have a small glass of pilsner with your sandwich or switch it up with a full pint of coffee stout. Wine, cider, coffee and kombucha are on tap, too. A Wolfgang Puck protégé masterminded the food menu, so expect upscale eats. Even the chips are dusted with white truffle salt. Very grown-up.


A taphouse where you're in control of your pours.
Deciding what to drink has never been so much fun.
