BeerVenture: Frisco Tap and Brew House

I’ve personally watched Frisco transform from Frisco Burritos to Frisco Cantina and Grille, and now Frisco Tap and Brew House. Whatever you call it, Columbia, Maryland has become home to one of the hippest new beer bars in the Baltimore/DC metropolis.

Located in what looks like a remodeled warehouse on a side street in the heart of Columbia, the decor is something straight out of Santa Fe. Wrap-around booth seating, wall size windows and extended family style tables make this a perfect place to hang out with friends and stay awhile. The enormous bar practically extends the width of the restaurant, as do the 50 beer taps lining the back wall. The star of the bar, however, is the beer list, displayed digitally overhead like two giant airport tele-prompters.

50 beers on tap, 100 bottled beers, and a TV for every game.

You won’t miss your game or fight over channels here. The beer list is surrounded by flat screen TVs, so there’s always something good on the tube, and the menu is still highly recognizable to Frisco’s long-time patrons. That’s right loyal Frisco fans, you won’t have to give up the green chilis, chorizo, nachos, quesadillas, and burritos that we all know and love. The difference is that you can now pair your meal with any of 50 top US and imported craft beers on tap, and 100 bottled selections. Choose from local brews like Flying Dog, DuClaw, Oliver’s, and Clipper City, or maybe you prefer harder to find imported belgian beers. From east coast (RJ Rockers, Dogfish, Troegs) to west coast (Anderson Valley, 21st amendment, Sierra Nevada), up to Canada (Unibroue) and across to Belgium (Scaldis) – Frisco has the craft beer scene covered.  If that’s not enough, house beers will be added soon, as Frisco plans to open their brewing operations well before the year’s end.

The bartenders are welcoming, knowledgeable and stand by to assist, but when in doubt, ask for a sample.  The taps rotate regularly, and the restaurant entertains a packed house on Firkin Thursdays and Pint Nights. Also, don’t forget to ask about their beer club.  The challenge?  Drink and log 100 different beers at Frisco, at which point you’ll chug a “Natty Boh” with the bartenders and earn a coveted Frisco mug.  What better way to begin your next beer journey!

Cheers beers!
