Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Conshohocken, PA, City Tap owns three restaurants in the Mid-Atlantic region, including two locations in Philadelphia and one in the heart of Washington, D.C.  The restaurants have an extensive selection of craft beers from local, regional and international breweries, and each restaurant serves from a highly sought after draft and bottle beer list.  Their restaurants also feature American regional fare with a focus on quality ingredients from local sources.  Their staff is eager and able to guide both the beer aficionado as well as the novice through their offerings and pairings.  Expansion is underway at two new locations in Palm Beach, FL and Boston, MA which are expected to open by summer of 2016 and additional locations are also expected to be opened before the year end.  “We are thrilled to be in partnership with Balance Point,” said Tim MacColl, Managing Partner of LMP.  “They are patient, long-term capital providers that understand the business model and we look forward to their continued support.”
