Prohibition Taproom

Continuing this week’s 13th Street Kitchens takeover we have Prohibition Taproom. This casual gastropub opened in 2008 inside a building from the 1800s. Prohibition Taproom debuted their new menu May 2016 featuring small plates featuring comfort food and prohibition era snacks. The menu highlights seasonal locally farmed ingredients. The restaurant has a warm and cozy glow about it with the retro neon signage outside and its dim lighting and jukebox greeting you as you walk in the front door.  This joint is serving brunch and lunch 7 days a week while selling 6 packs and growlers you can take home or carry next door to Bufad or Cafe Lift so you can BYOB.

Don’t forget about the killer sandwiches and burger. All the meat comes from thier sister restaurant Kensington Quarters so you know its top-notch. They’ve got a Braised Beef Cheesesteak with bourbon braised KQ beef, cheddar, and pickled shallots on a long roll. The infamous Pro-Tap Burger with KQ ground beef, cheddar, caramelized onion, and pickles on a soft bun. And of course the mouthwatering Braised Pork Belly Grilled Cheese with provolone, black garlic aioli, and pickled spring onion on sourdough.
