Tap Depot

The Monterey Tap Depot is conveniently located on the Monterey Recreation Trail just steps from the famous Fisherman’s Wharf. Craft beer fans will enjoy 24 taps amidst a social vibe. Bar rails, communal seating and lounge chairs adorn the interior, while an outdoor patio offers fire pits, heaters, picnic tables, corn hole, and easy access to the Wedo’s Tacos resident food truck. Once a bustling train station in the 1930s, this location is aptly named the Tap Depot. First-come, first-served, no reservations at this location.
