I am a list maker. At
times it borders on the absurd. Over the
years I’ve jotted down interesting first names, brainstormed on dry erase
boards, scoured dictionaries, and of course shared those late nights while I’m
intoxicated with friends and in the midst of a conversation about nothing
relating to bar names someone proclaims “that’s the one!” Sadly there isn’t a clever back story on how our
name came about.
I’m pretty sure I was looking through one of my favorite
books Schott’s Miscellany and the word brimmer jumped out at me. Its definition is simple: A glass so full
that the liquid touches the brim. And
heeltap serves as the opposite: the tiny amount of residue in your glass that
you can never seem to retrieve.
My vision all along has been to create a gastro-pub that
serves as a gathering place for good food, good drink, and good company and has
the feel that it has always been there. You
come in for a full glass and leave when that one or more are empty. I can’t wait to introduce you to Brimmer
