Our Story

Vermont Tap House is operated by Wish and Careau Hospitality Group, a partnership between Jonathan Wish, a restauranteur classically trained sushi chef and Shawn Careau, a chef who's developed many styles of cuisine and worked at some premier restaurants around the state.  Tafts Corners is home to dozens of chain restaurants, and the partners want to bring some real, local flavor to the area. Their focus is on locally-sourced, fresh ingredients and regional craft beers served in an atmosphere that celebrates Vermont growers and brewers. It’s also about fun, casual dining with family and friends – an escape from the cookie-cutter world of box stores and generic eateries that surround the Tap House.
