Tapp99, self-pour taproom from race car driver, comes to Navy Yard this spring

Restaurant and tap room near Nats Stadium features RFID-enabled enjoyment

Tap99, a new taphouse and restaurant will open just steps from Nats Stadium this spring. Founded by Jason Cherry, a Pirelli World Challenge, Mazda and Nissan race car driver and business owner, Tap99 will bring self-service beer, wine, cider, and premixed cocktails to the Navy Yard neighborhood.

The self-pour taproom and restaurant will be located in a 2,800-square foot space. The restaurant team will rotate brews to reflect seasonal arrivals and craft, local brewers. Communal tables, which will make up the bulk of the 98 indoor seats, will be complemented by the outdoor patio’s additional al-fresco seating.


The Tap99 kitchen will dish out artisan pizzas, which are made in a Marra Forni brick oven, small plates and shareable dishes.

“Not only will our self-pour experience translate into shorter wait times, it will allow customers to sample small amounts of a variety of our 99 beverages on tap,” said Tap99 owner Jason Cherry, who also owns Mission Escape Rooms, the largest escape room business in Maryland. “We look forward to welcoming Navy Yard residents, visitors and Nats fans alike to experience this unique concept.”

An RFID card will enable customers to connect their preferred choice of payment and purchase a variety of adult beverages by the ounce. Guests will benefit from an improved experience that reflects reduced wait times and additional enjoyment, suggested an announcement from Tap99.
