Jennifer Gallego knows her beer. For years, she’s been studying flavor profiles, building connections in the craft beer world, and even brewing her own beer at home to ensure she understands every detail that goes into creating the perfect pint. “As a woman in the industry, I know the feeling of intimidation when you walk into a bar or brewery,” she said. “It’s kind of a man’s world, and I’m excited to help change that.”

And this summer, change is coming — at least to Gilbert, AZ. Jennifer plans to open the industrial garage doors of the Tap Dragon Beer and Wine Bar by August 1st. Located on the corner of Gilbert and Warner (835 South Gilbert Street, to be exact), Tap Dragon will be the first official tap room in the area, serving 32 craft beers on tap and 15 rotating wines, complete with a dog-friendly patio, an indoor-outdoor bar, and live music. 

“I’m hoping to become the Cheers of the neighborhood,” Jennifer said. “People from all walks of life are welcome.” 

In the spirit of quoting barrier-breaking women, I feel it’s only appropriate to end with the words of my personal hero, Rihanna: “I’ll drink to that!”
