Taps Restaurant & Taproom opened their doors for business in the Fall of 2009. While pouring craft beer exclusively is now quite common amongst taprooms in Sonoma County, Eric Lafranchi was one of the first to leave the likes of the major corporate breweries off his tap list.

One location move, thousands of kegs sold, and almost six years later, Eric is busy as ever. Friday nights at Taps may require a wait if you’re planning on stopping by in the evening.

Attached is a video of an interview with Eric in which he shares some insight of what inspired him to start the business and a look at future events.
