OUR STORY

We love each other. We love craft beer. We love building community. And we love helping people explore beer!


Kimberly and Mike met in the Fall of 2015 because of their love of craft beer. They quickly fell in love and realized both shared the same dream of having their own craft beer taphouse! After exploring craft beer and the PNW together for a few months, they decided to make their dreams come true and bring their passion for craft beer to Mike’s hometown of Vancouver, Washington with the creation of Final Draft Taphouse. 

Kimberly and Mike love craft beer, connecting with others, and want Final Draft Tapouse to be the place where beer friends come together to enjoy and explore craft beer, share stories, and make life-long connections!

MIKE BOLT, BOLT.SHRED.BEER Mike was born and grew up in Vancouver, Wa. After graduating from Columbia High School, he moved to Montana to attend the University of Montana. After graduation, he had no idea what he truly wanted to do as a career. While in Montana, Mike fell in love with the beer in Missoula and had an extreme passion for it. So he decided to move back to Portland, Oregon and make a career out of working in the craft-beverage industry. He started working in the wine industry, then moved from there to craft cider and finally into the craft-beer industry, most recently working at Oregon City Brewery and Fortside Brewing in Vancouver. Although he loved where he worked, Mike wasn’t completely satisfied as he longed for his own pursuit in craft beer. He has chosen to take his love and passion for craft beer home to Vancouver, Wa., where the craft-beer scene is starting to blossom. Mike loves craft beer and loves to share beer and stories with others. Mike often says, “Let’s grab a pint and be RAD!” Favorite beer style?  C’mon!? I love all beer styles! But right now, a big fatty stout sounds amazing! Favorite craft beer right now?  Whatever beer is in my hand at the moment! Favorite quote?  Be excellent to each other, and party on dudes! – Bill & Ted A perfect day off would be…  relaxing at Lake Merwin with Kimberly, drinking amazingly refreshingly craft beer, evening surf session, and a big yummy dinner by the fire!  Favorite musician/band?  John Lennon Favorite book of all time?  Ahhh, I haven’t read too many books.  What do you have to do before you die?  Shred (ski) powder, so hard, in the mountains of Japan and eat blowfish!
