    Folks, I'm looking to find out roughly how many operating 100 tap beer bars are out there. The information does not seem readily available. Just post up any that you know of. Thanks for your help.

    Mayor of Old Town in Fort Collins, CO and Tapwerks in Oklahoma City are two that come to mind.

    The volume of customers you need to have 100 taps is insane otherwise your sitting on a lot of old beer because you will not turn 100 lines very quickly.

    Sadly, that's not enough to discourage these places. When one multi-tap joint (no longer opened - came and went quickly) opened near me, I used to sit down, look quickly at the menu (at least this place had one) and then naively say, "Oh, geez, I just can't decide with all these choices! What have you just tapped recently?"

    I thought it was a clever way to avoid the old stuff, but the bartender always pleaded ignorance. :slight_frown:

    Last time I stopped in - new name over the door, 5-6 taps, Yuengling Lager the only non-AB or MC product.

    Not at 100 taps, but Hay Merchant in Houston has about the biggest turnover of taps I have seen in a high volume beer bars. 80 taps, plus 5 casks. They routinely change out 20 new beers a day, weekends much more. I have never seen a place that consistently gives out this high of quality with that amount of volume.

    There's over 70 locations world-wide with over 100 taps in the database; I'm guessing more if we had the info.

    My wallet and liver both fear a new Hop Cat opening, especially much closer to where I live!
