I know this seems like guilding the lily to those who read my Taps beer reviews, but the remaking of the Taps Virgil brewing operation as a brew pub has produced some wonderful revolving offerings I feel I can recommend to everyone. Yes they're mostly German styles but they are made well in small batches, they're fresh, on style, clean and very very drinkable.
So far the new head brewer (who has an impressive CV for such a young guy) includes a Dortmunder, Munich Dunkel, Bamberg Rauchbier, Roggenbier, Bockbier, Vanilla weissbier, a porter and an intense micro IPA. They also have the commercial Taps beers on tap as well as Flying Monkeys Hoptical and Newstadt !0/30. There is also a hand pulled cask engine for special casks they crack on invitation.

The ambiance at Taps is pretty spartan but it's all sparkling new interior furnishings and the theme is unpretentious....like a block party in a small neighborhood brewery with live music and solid (good) unpretentious pub fare...I tried the Buffalo Style Chicken Sandwich on sourdough Focaccia...ample portion, fresh, well made, tasty, reasonable price.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover Taps has mutated into a comfy decent little local brew pub with some good on-tap offerings and tasty pub grub. Worth a destination crawl or a definite must stop in Niagara Falls.
