Servehzah Bottle Shop & Taproom
Situated in the heart of the Arts District, the word cerveza is not misspelled in this bar’s name. Rather, it’s a play on the word by owners Tony Herrera, Johnny Barbosa and Tony Martinez.
The three partners “wanted to create a place to incorporate our (Latin) culture,” and that intention is evident with Latin music playing and pics on the wall of iconic figures (including Carlos Santana, Aniceto Molina and Vicente Fernandez). There’s also the Servehzah Nueva Esperanza: a Mexican-style lager made exclusively for the taproom by local Juxta Nomad and Astronomy Aleworks.
Also pouring from the 24 taps are local and regional beers, usually representing lagers, ambers, sours, porters, stouts, Belgians and IPAs. As soon as one keg empties, a different one is brought on, so you will likely find new beers to try each time you visit. In addition to the taps, there’s the “beer cave”: a refrigerated room where you can personally select from 140 rotating cans and bottles, to take home or drink here. Micheladas, made with Tony Martinez’s proprietary mix, are popular – especially when made with the aforementioned Nueva Esperanza, or the Ace mango, guava and pineapple ciders.
Although no food is served, there are food trucks scheduled daily.
