Boasting 26 rotating beers on tap that range from classic domestics, imports, as well as Michigan
favorites; micro-brew fanatics will love downtown’s newest beer pub. Located in the Stadium District at 414 E. Michigan Ave, Taps 25, is a relaxed beer bar that blends the latest social media technology with a good old-fashioned beer pub.

“It’s a classic style pub,” says Jerome White, who owns the new bar along with his partner Doug
Johns Jr., “but with a very tech savvy feeling to it.”

With a bar handmade from 125-year old reclaimed barn wood, patrons will feel right at home while
tweeting and updating from their seats. A large TV screen will display a live stream of tweets with the hashtag #Taps25, and messages mentioning @Taps25.

Taps 25 serves soup and specialty breads, has two 53" HD TVs to take in the game and a Foosball

In addition, Taps 25 has been awarded a $1,000 Sign Grant from the Design Committee of
Downtown Lansing Inc. in partnership with the Lansing Economic Development Corporation.

“Adding to the cluster of other entertainment venues located at 414 E. Michigan Avenue, the Taps 25 projecting sign is a prime example of creative and innovative sign design helping to improve the
overall economic vitality in the downtown,” says Mindy Biladeau, Executive Director of Downtown
Lansing Inc.

A grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony will take place with owners Doug Johns Jr. and Jerome White, along with Mayor Bernero, Downtown Lansing Inc., and the Lansing Economic Development Corporation on Tuesday, May 15, at 4:30 p.m. 

Everyone is invited to Taps 25 to view the new pub, try an old favorite or new brew, enjoy
complimentary appetizers and tweet about the bar while you’re there.
