TAPS Fish House & Brewery will celebrate the opening of its landmark restaurant in Brea 20 years ago with a three-course menu of original dishes from 1999 on Monday, September 23, starting at 4 p.m. As a tribute to the 20th anniversary TAPS brewers are bringing back the cult classic and award-winning beer Trace of Remy.
“A little taste of nostalgia is in order to thank our guests for their amazing loyalty over the last two decades,” said TAPS founder and proprietor Joe Manzella, who opened the original TAPS in Brea with his father and sister on September 20, 1999. TAPS quickly became a popular destination for guests seeking high-quality seafood, selections from the county’s largest oyster bar, as well as craft beers and fine wines, cordially served in a setting of upscale comfort. TAPS Fish House & Brewery since has expanded to Corona and Irvine, as well as TAPS Brewery & Barrel Room, a full-scale production brewery with a tasting room and food truck in Tustin.
