Managing multiple beers and wines comes naturally to Brian Ballard, owner of Pour Taproom, whose former life involved managing up to 100 employees. His skills transferred easily to the interactive concept he has developed in his Downtown establishment.
Interaction is a huge part of his business: Employees are interacting with the customers and the customers are interacting with each other while enjoying the Pour experience, which gives people the opportunity to try multiple types of beer and wine and pay by the ounce. Pour Taproom has the largest beer selection Downtown and is the only place in Wilmington that incorporates self-pour technology.
Pour Taproom also serves food! The menu of small bites includes food that is good quality and reasonably priced.
One of the more popular offerings is the pretzel baguette served with a dipping sauce. Regulars also love the flatbread pizzas which are just enough for one person. You can opt for a simple salad, grilled cheese or Panini. Or, when you’re feeling sociable, you can choose to share a plate of taproom nachos.
Whatever you choose, Brian wants you to have a good experience at Pour Taproom because customer satisfaction is what inspires him. He also loves having 6,500 square feet of space in the unique, historic Murchison building to give back to the community through events and fundraisers.
This unique venue is well worth a visit. And, you really need to check out the old bank vault which houses the wine taproom…and also happens to be hurricane proof!
