The Golden Taps is getting ready for a new ski season after completing a renovation of the pub.

New menu, new season, new beer and a new look at The Golden Taps

It is a new season at The Golden Taps and things just keep getting better.

It is a new season at The Golden Taps and things just keep getting better.

Adam McCullough, one of the partners, came to Golden more than eight years ago to open a pub.

He moved to town from Jasper where he and his business partner were both working as bartenders.

“We wanted to open our own place. We looked around British Columbia at different places with ski hills and figured out Golden had the best equation for us,” he said.

As for the past eight years, McCullough said they have gone by very fast.

Recently the pub went through a renovation heading into another ski season.

“We raised the booths. They were lower before, and on busy nights it felt like the crowd was above you. Now those are the first three places people sit when people come in,” he said.

They decision was also made to put in a stage area for musical performances explained McCullough.

“People can sit there and eat during the day and bands can play at night. It also provides us with a more suitable dance floor. It is now set up for multipurpose usage,” he said. “It also seems a bit cozier now.”

The new look will also allow for bigger groups to sit together at the pub.

Along with the physical changes made at Taps, the bar has also brought in new beer on tap.

“We now have two new Sleemans and two new Okanagon Springs products. This is along with a new menu which will combine the classic meals which people come here for and a few new surprises,” McCullough said.

Ever since the pub opened, McCullough said the support they have received from the community has been overwhelming.

“We had never been here until we opened this place. The town was very receptive and welcomed us with open arms. We were lucky in that way,” he said. “We always like to keep the place fresh so the people who come here have something fresh to see.”
