Both Chris and I want to welcome you to Takoma Beverage Company!  Getting the doors open has been a culmination of over a year’s worth of work, many long days and nights, and the generosity of countless people, including our families, who haven’t really seen us over the last few months.  We’re so glad to be able to bring our passion to the neighborhood of Takoma Park, and the reception from the community has been heartwarming.  Y’all know how to make a person feel loved!

At Takoma Beverage Company, we’re obsessed with drinks.  We love their taste and aromas, their histories and significance to many cultures before us, the way they bring us together and the way they can change your day.  Our desire is to create a space that lives in this celebration all day long, from a handmade pourover in the morning, to a revitalizing tea in the afternoon, to a classic cocktail for a night cap.

The bigger picture for us at Takoma Bev. Co. is connection.  Technology has driven us to stay more connected than ever before, but we hope our little corner of the community can satiate this desire.  Nothing brings us closer together than grabbing a drink with a friend, or meeting up for a coffee.  Conversations and ideas come together over drinks that can’t happen organically anywhere else.  Further, our beverages pull our global world together.  Whether it’s a lovely washed Yirgacheffe coffee from a small coop in Ethiopia to an elegant cava handmade at a family owned vineyard just outside of Barcelona, to a traditional gose style beer straight from Leipzig- all these drinks connect us.  How often do we have an opportunity to interact with and appreciate the hard work and traditions of other cultures in such an easily accessible way as in a glass?  It’s one of the most beautiful parts of this industry and we look forward to sharing it with you.

So, welcome to Takoma Bev. Co.!  We can’t wait to meet you, so please stop by and introduce yourself, and let’s get to know each other!
