August 17, 2018 GMT

HUNTINGTON — One of Huntington’s coolest craft beer bars just got a little cooler.

Taps at Heritage, located in the historic Heritage Station at 210 11th St., Suite 9, will be officially opening its new outdoor space on Saturday, Aug. 18, according to owners Allison White and Ray Frye.

“Ray and I have been talking about how we could get outdoor seating, so we finally talked to all the right officials, got the design for the new outdoor space approved and started construction last week,” White said.

The entire outdoor space, which includes the new deck and built-in bench seating, is approximately 25 feet by 30 feet and can accommodate about 40 people, according to White.

“We plan to do a grand opening party for it,” she said.

The space also will be available for rent, White added.

“There is going to be nothing like it in Huntington,” White said. “It’s going to be private and out of the way. It will be like you’re hanging out on your own back porch. It’s going to be awesome,” she said.

White says the new deck also will help attract more visitors to Heritage Station.

“Heritage Station is already a cool place and this is just going to make it better,” she said.

Taps at Heritage offers a variety of draft beers, ciders and more than 20 brands of can and bottled beers and ciders.

Taps is the “little brother” of SIP Wine and Whiskey bar located just 3 doors down and also owned by White and Frye.
