Today it’s time to drink the donuts. Tria Taproom is tapping the improbable Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break at noon. The beer is literally beer and donuts in the same glass. The Imperial Stout is “dry-doughnuted” with 997 glazed donuts.
Tria Taproom is serving each glass with a complimentary donut from Federal Donuts. Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break weighs in at 11.5% and an 11 ounce glass will set you back $8.50. But hey, when else will you get to drink a donut?

Don Russell gets into the details about Tria Taproom’s high-tech web-based beer auditing system. And Russell has a suggestion for where this is all heading.
I see a single app that alerts me when my favorite IPA goes on tap. Then it automatically sends a car to pick me up, invites my Facebook friends to belly up to the bar with me, Instagrams a photo of my pint, signals the Internet jukebox to play “Gimme Shelter,” tweets my Yelp! review, calculates the bartender’s tip, and texts my wife with some lame excuse for missing dinner with the in-laws.
Nerds, get to work on this, now.

Tria Taproom quietly opened Saturday evening at 20th and Walnut Streets. The former Rum Bar has been totally transformed into a minimal space where the focus is clearly on the bar’s forty taps that pour beer, wine, cider and soda. We stopped in shortly after Tria Taproom opened yesterday at 4 p.m., to check out what was pouring as well as what was coming out of the kitchen.
In addition to Tria’s well-trained staff, Tria Taproom welcomes you with an iPad. From the iPad menu you can check out what’s available to drink and if you’re a true nerd, you can see just how much is left in the keg. You can also do this from your smartphone as well at tria.bevchek.com.

Tria published this photo of the still under construction Tria Taproom in their weekly newsletter today. Best news, we can now count down to the opening in weeks instead of months.
Tria Taproom is coming to 20th and Walnut and will serve draft beer, wine, cider and soda, along with a menu of pizza and bar fare.
Tria’s weekly email contained the above photo of the under construction Tria Taproom at 2005 Walnut Street. The beer and pizza focused spot is aiming to open this August and will feature draft beer, draft wine and draft soda (no bottles).

This Friday, May 17th will be the last day for Univesity City’s Tria Wine Room. The little sibbling of Center City’s Tria locations opened in October, 2010 as Biba and has developed a number of loyal guests, but “that number is too small to make Tria Wine Room a viable business.” We always enjoyed the intimate space and the splendid deck.
As a way to say goodbye, Tria Wine room is extending its Off the Beaten Vine Happy Hour an additional hour. Enjoy excellent and unusual wines tonight through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. for just $5.
Tria will be expanding back to three this summer with Tria Taproom, Tria’s take on beer, pizza and of course wine. That project is under construction at 2005 Walnut Street, the former home of Rum Bar.

This morning we spotted our second favorite shade of orange in the window of the former Rum Bar on Walnut Street. The liquor license application is registered to William Alexander Corp. and an Internet search revealed Tria’s Jonathan Myerow as one of the names on the liquor license.
Myerow tells us he’s opening Tria Taproom at the former Rum Bar. The concept will be pizza and beer. Other than that he’s being tight-lipped, won’t even tell us what kind of pizza oven he’s installing. And though it seems everyone is doing pizza right now, Myerow promises his will be a bit different.
Tria Taproom is aiming for a summer opening. That pizza oven may be in April, so stay tuned.
