Tap 42 pours a bounty of pota­bles to keep lo­cals com­ing back all week.

Whether it’s happy hour, game night, ladies’ night, or bot­tom­less brunch, Mi­ami­ans can al­ways count on Tap 42 Craft Beer Bar + Kitchen to wet their whis­tle—though “Sundays get pretty crazy,” says gen­eral man­ager Sadiel Rivero.

In­deed, “Fun­day” at the Co­ral Gables spot sees herds of young pro­fes­sion­als and Univer­sity of Mi­ami stu­dents sip­ping lim­it­less Bloody Marys, mi­mosas, or Funky Buddha Florid­i­ans. If you pre­fer to keep your drink­ing op­tions wide open, the cock­tails on tap, sea­sonal con­coc­tions (sum­mer calls for the spirit- and cit­rus-for­ward Last Call, with Jame­son Cask­mates, sherry, sweet ver­mouth, or­ange liqueur, and lemon), hand­crafted li­ba­tions (try the laven­der lemon­ade), and beer in­no­va­tions (like a Drafted Old Fash­ioned, made with Magic Hat #9 and Knob Creek rye) are sure to get you into good spir­its. There’s also a ro­bust, evolv­ing list of brews from lo­cal providers like Con­crete Beach, Wyn­wood Brew­ing, MIA, and J Wake­field, as well as daily spe­cial drafts. If you’re a whiskey con­nois­seur, you’re in luck: Tap 42’s bestkept se­cret is its Scotch col­lec­tion, which in­cludes over 20 va­ri­eties, from light and del­i­cate to smoky and rich, and even some blends.

And now you can have the same fun at a Mid­town lo­ca­tion, which de­buts items such as the Rain­bow Sushi Bowl and Spicy Sal­mon To­s­tones. Just re­mem­ber, drink re­spon­si­bly. 301 Gi­ralda Ave., Co­ral Gables, 786-391-1566; 3252 NE First Ave., Ste. 101, Mi­ami; 786-864-0194; tap42.com

Tap 42 has four Florida out­posts, in­clud­ing this one in Co­ral dables. ƚƛƨưƞ: fn ad­di­tion to its eclec­tic menu of drinks, Tap 42 of­fers delectable burg­ers and sand­wiches, in­clud­ing the mro­hi­bi­tion, the Av­o­cado Turkey Burger, and the Truf­fle Filet Steak Sand­wich.
