The Tall Guy & the Tap

The freshest beer you can get by the glass. That’s what Patrick Broderick is offering customers at his Tall Guy Brewing tap room newly opened in the old Sears building on North Franklin Street.

Patrick comes by his talent for making great beer honestly. For 30 years he rose in the ranks at North Coast Brewing and finished his career as co-brewmaster. In that time, he developed a strong sense of community and a solid belief that Fort Bragg is worthy of mecca status for great craft beer.

If you want the beer,
you gotta get it here.

Working with his wife and three daughters, Patrick’s go-fresh-or-go-home model involves brewing once a week and rotating beers regularly. The starting lineup includes a Mexican Lager, German Helles, Belgian Witbier, a hoppy American Pale Ale, a 90s-style IPA, a hazy IPA, a Brut IPA. and a London Porter as well as hard and soft seltzers made on the premises.

Local Tip:

All Tall Guy beers are served by the glass, although you can get growlers poured right from the tap.

The vibe at Tall Guy is 70s relaxed chic with comfy couches, window seats, a 12-foot harvest table, and even a place to play shuffleboard. Patrick has created a gathering place for the community and a destination for travelers, ready to accommodate a party or date night, or offer a refuge to sip and read. The tap room serves simple but delicious fare available from local food trucks and restaurants, offered to compliment the fresh libations.
