Final Draft Taphouse

Hours of operation to be announced prior to our Grand Opening!

Final Draft Taphouse is a craft-beer bar in Vancouver Washington featuring 30 rotating craft beers, craft cider and wine, and a small food selection. We offer the community an entertaining, welcoming, community craft-beer bar to gather to learn about and enjoy high quality, local craft beers while connecting with existing and new friends. 

Brewers' Tell the North Bank Beer Story

During the 2nd annual North Bank Beer Week (Sept. 22 to 30), we invited North Bank Brewers to come into the taphouse and tell their stories. As the (tap)house of stories, we believe in the power of telling stories to connect with each other, new friends, and the community. North Bank brewers shared about their breweries, how they got into brewing/came to open their breweries, and their thoughts on being part of the North Bank. Here is the collective story emerging of the North Bank craft-beer scene as told by 15 North Bank (SW Washington Brewers)! 

We already knew we have found ourselves part of a very exciting time in this community because of craft beer but after hearing their stories, we are even MORE excited to be a part of it all! We look forward to watching it grow and being a part of its continual growth!

 

North Bank Beer Week Recap!

The 2nd annual North Bank Beer Week took place Sept. 22 to 30. And here at Final Draft Taphouse, we did several events including Brewers' Stories, our launch of Couve Brew Bevy, and a Trap Door/Wingman Brewers Collab beer release party! Throughout the week, there were many events around Vancouver and the entire North Bank celebrating all the goodness that is craft beer on the North Bank! Being part of the North Bank is something very special with lots of promise for the future of craft beer on the North Bank! We are excited to be part of the North Bank and part of this awesome craft-beer community!

We look forward to next year's North Bank Beer Week!

Here's an image recap of our North Bank festivities!
