This venture was started by the Franklin family who share a passion for craft beer and good food. Opening a restaurant has always been a dream of Dustin’s after completing his military service in the U.S Navy. He and his wife felt compelled to make their investment in Madera, Dustin’s hometown where he graduated from Madera High School in 2005.  Dustin and Traci want to contribute to the progress of growing Madera into a vibrant community.  Their goal is to serve award-winning beer, specialty wine and hand-crafted pizza in a warm casual setting. The Tap House wants their patrons to feel like family when dining at their establishment.

The Tap House tentative opening date is September 1, 2017.  They are currently hiring and are expected to have 12 employees. Resumes may be sent to for consideration of employment.
