Federal Taphouse Opening in Fraser Centre Pushed Back

The opening of Federal Taphouse's State College location in the Fraser Centre has been moved back a few days.

The restaurant and bar announced on its website in May that it would open on Monday, June 19, but that has been moved back to Saturday, July 1, according to general manager David Chubb. The change in opening date will allow Federal Taphouse to put the finishing touches on construction.

The State College location will be Federal Taphouse's fourth in Pennsylvania, with others in Harrisburg, Lancaster and Camp Hill. 
It joins Hyatt Place Hotel, Target, H&M and private condos in the Fraser Centre. Target and H&M were the first occupants to open their doors in the new building in October 2016 and Hyatt opened earlier this year.

Federal Taphouse will be located on the second floor of the Fraser Centre, with access through the hotel and from Fraser Street. 

Owned by Penn State alumni Corey Fogarty and Judd Goodman, Federal Taphouse's other locations boast hundreds of craft and bottled beers as well as craft spirits and a variety of wines on tap and bottled. Specializing in farm-to-table fare using local ingredients, they also offer lunch and dinner menus and a Sunday brunch.

Fogarty and Goodman opened the first Federal Taphouse in 2012, developing a small chain that specializes in craft beer and from-scratch foods.
