Levine and Strahan, Kyle and San Marcos residents respectively, have worked in the service industry for years and always knew they wanted to own a bar.
“Combined we’ve done every job in the industry from line cook to bar manager to talent buyer to brand developers ... so it just seemed like the natural progression to purchase a place and get to really try our hand at owning a spot,” Strahan said.
The Taproom will continue to operate as normal while The Porch will move toward live music.
“The Porch is getting a big face-lift; we’re redesigning the layout, and we have a New Years’ Eve party, so we’ll start music programming on a regular basis in 2022,” Strahan said.
