Co-owner Ron Moore and his wife had been thinking about starting a business since Ron’s retirement. Their son, Mitchell, told them about Corktown. As they began touring the area and researching the growth of the neighborhood, they knew it would be the right fit.

“My wife, son, and I wanted to create something that can be a focal point in the community,”

said Ron Moore, founder, and developer of Corktown Taphouse, in a press release. “We want to be a part of Corktown and to make the space welcoming and fun for everyone in the neighborhood.”

In addition to the taphouse, Perennial Corktown offers other essential retail options for the neighborhood including Corktown Market, a bodega-style grocery store, and Haraz Coffee, a Yemeni-inspired coffee shop.

Hunter Pasteur, the Forbes Company, and Oxford Capital Group are developers of the Perennial Corktown apartments where the Taphouse is housed.

“We’re excited to introduce Corktown Taphouse to the residents and neighbors of Corktown,” said Randy Wertheimer, CEO of Hunter Pasteur, in a press release. “Corktown Taphouse brings something unique to Perennial Corktown and the neighborhood. This adds so much to our resident’s living experience and gives the neighborhood a new space to relax and enjoy with friends and family.”

Construction on the taphouse is currently underway and doors are projected to open late this summer.
