After unexpected delays, Irene’s Tap Room finally opened its doors to an eager public on JULY 6 (*dated changed after newspaper’s publication).

Located at 1227 E. Northern Ave., Irene’s is friendly, mid-century modern tap room, bottle shop and entertainment venue built to expand the knowledge and palates of craft beer and wine lovers in an educational and relaxed setting.

With 23 independent beers and eight wines on tap, and an eclectic menu of temperature-controlled to-go options, Irene’s will offer something for everyone—because men don’t just drink beer and women don’t just drink wine.

While the bar doesn’t serve food, there will be a rotating schedule of food trucks out front.

Hours are 3 p.m.-2 a.m. Monday through Friday, and 12 p.m.-2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call 602-449-7879 or visit
