On Wednesday we chatted with Roman Maliszewski, the founder of Tapster, in our “Have a Drink” series on Instagram Live which you can find here. Tapster is a self-pour concept that originated in Chicago, but thanks to a friend in Seattle, Roman decided to bring his concept here. The South Lake Union taproom allows customers to pour their own beer, kinda like a self-serve frozen yogurt shop. They host drag nights, comedy shows, and more fun events year-round. Read on to find out a little more about Roman and Tapster.

Get outside and see the beauty of the surrounding areas.
