Happy Tuesday. Last week I showed you some images from one of the two businesses that recently opened in Maquoketa. The Chamber Ambassadors visit new businesses for ribbon cuttings, show casing new additions or anytime a business requests them to come to their business. The business I wrote about last week was “Make A Splash” and today I’d like to show you a business called “The Brick Tap.”
When I first started working in Maquoketa there was a bar on the top floor of one of the store fronts on Platte Street called the Loft. It was a favorite place for a lot of people to meet after work but then it finally closed down and has remained closed for the last several years. Now a group of 5 individuals (all having other business endeavors) have rehabbed the old bar and made it into an upscale bar and grill with some really nice touches and great food.
Matt Anderson and his Sister Megan Anderson along with Mary Hayward, Charlie Hayes and Brook Taylor are the co-owners of the Brick Tap. They are open Thursday through Monday and closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. From what I hear around town and see on their Face Book Page They are doing a great job of satisfying their customers. On the left is Charlie Hayes and on the right is chef Matt Anderson.
Megan Anderson displays the ribbon from the ribbon cutting. You can see from the menu above they have a nice variety of food and beverages. I wish I had been able to stick around and learn more about their story and how they came up with the idea of getting together to begin this new business venture.
Then again I’m sure they will be happy to enlighten you over a cool one and some food. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
