Tapping into Oak

Owners Rod Steward and Lorraine Lyons of 64 Oz. welcome customers to their new space at 208 Oak St. The taproom, with 30 taps of beer, cider and wine, opened in May 2015 around the corner on Third Street and quickly became a downtown craft beer hub, with regular live music, often with Steward at the drum kit. “We’ve had nothing but good responses from the regulars” since the move in early July, according to Lyons. “They like the brick wall and the new tables. And we’re happy to have our outside seating still.” One adjustment for regulars was the way the numbered taps are oriented: When the cooler was reinstalled, it had to be reversed because of the shop layout. That meant the general “lighter to darker” tap order — cider-wine-lagers-hoppy-dark — changed so stouts are now at far left instead of right. Of course, those requisite IPAs stayed, suitably, at center.
