Tap & Screw Brewery opening second location in Oakley

Tap & Screw Brewery opened in Westwood a little over a year ago, and now the brewery is expanding to a second location at 3026 Madison Road in Oakley, which will open this summer.
Tom Lorenz and Chuck Frisch own Tap & Screw, with Tom’s son Adam as the head brewer. Adam will run the second location as well as continue brewing.
The Oakley location will mainly be for small-batch and specialty beers, which will be brewed on a two-barrel system. All of the beers available in Westwood will also be available in Oakley, including the All Jacked Up vanilla porter, Irony Belgian dubbel and Dr. Kool IPA.
Like the original brewpub, the Oakley Tap & Screw will also have a food menu, but it will be much smaller with just 8-10 items on the menu. Tap & Screw's food menu focuses on fresh and homemade dishes, and the Westwood location has a full menu for lunch and dinner.

The new brewpub will be open six days a week for lunch, dinner and late-night.
Down the road, the Tap & Screw team plans to open two or three more brewpubs around the city.
