They always have a few interesting beers on tap including their own house brew 1861 Arnold's Porter. They have a courtyard out back with a stage for live music.

All of the beer served at Taft's are their own concoctions from a Key Lime Caribbean Ale to a Chocolate Porter to a Belgian Saison. This Beer Hall is 3 levels.
