Wyatt Montgomery knows a barrel of legendary Zoria imperial stout will help his Denver gastropub stay on top. The only problem is the brewery that made it is no longer in business. When Wyatt hears the brewmaster has only one barrel left, he won’t stop until it’s his. He doesn’t consider what this mythical barrel might cost him. And he certainly doesn’t anticipate his reac ...more

You know those authors that you just fall into their books and don’t want to come out and go back to reality? That’s how I have always felt about Meg Benjamin’s work; she has the ability to write small town romances that have you ready to pack your bags and move just so you can be friends with the people who live there. Love On Tap is set in Colorado and is centered on a mostly defunct craft brewery that has one special barrel of beer left and one pub owner willing to do most anything t

I thought this was a very enjoyable read. Very interesting characters, some quirky secondary characters, and a storyline that was very entertaining. I did find Bec to be a bit of a coward for not facing her friends but she finally came around with Wyatt's coaxing and support. Wyatt was just a sweetheart and the way he interacted with Bec and Carol was sweet. Definitely a book I would recommend.

This is cute. I’ll admit there were times near the beginning where I wasn’t sure about Bec and her stubborn reluctance to do anything to actually help herself, but Wyatt surprised me with his determination and slowly this turned from a slightly unlikely scenario into something delightful. It’s still faintly daft in places and I’m still not sure why Wyatt doesn’t tell everyone to get lost on several occasions, but if you can suspend your disbelief just enough every so often, then this is an enjoy ...more

This book tried to be funny but it failed. The heroine was a coward who got into trouble because she couldn't own up to her mistakes. The hero is a dummy because he falls for a heroine who is skittish, manipulative, and untrusting.

I couldn't connect with any of the characters, and the author loved ridiculous run-on sentences. It was like she never took a breath, which made reading this book exhausting.

This was an interesting story about beers. And those that make it. But really, it’s about a betrayal of not only a friend to Bec Dempsey but a friend of her brothers and someone she was dating and her lover. You see Bec was one of three owners of Antero Brewing.
There was herself, her brother, Liam, and Colin a trust fund baby. They were doing good on their way and had just produced a beer generating a lot of buzzes the Zoria, the golden ticket they thought.
When all of a sudden, Colin pays off

I love reading new authors. Someone who will open new possibilities for me. And Meg Benjamin just did it for me.

The story was just light and easy to read. Something interesting that’ll make you want to know what’ll happen next, but not too much heart-gripping that a heart could not handle. The story doesn’t have much complication and too many twists. Mostly, the story was pretty much straight forward and not too much drama. I don’t know if that was a good thing, but it was actually just the righ

I was given an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I have had a really hard time putting my thought on books that I read into words, sometimes due to frustration and other times because I have way too may thoughts trying to pour out of the head at once. So for now, I’m going to stick with these questions as a guideline for my reviews.

A quirky romance that started with both of them trying to get something from the other. Wyatt a brew that will keep his restaurant on the map. Bec the income to get her brewery up and running. What they didn't expect was the attraction they got when they met.
A fun read that will have Waytt jumping through hoops to get the ingredients of this amazing brew and Bec falling every time he succeeds.
Passion and suspense is what Meg, give us in this read.

Maybe if I was more into beer I would have enjoyed this book more. I just could not get into it at all. I found myself skimming it.

**4.5 Stars**

Wyatt, part-owner of a gastropub in Denver named Quaff, knows profits have been lower lately, and the cause is his newest, and closest, competition, Red Wolf. When a patron, a reporter no less, mentions the legendary Zoria, a creation of the now defunct Antero Brewery, Wyatt is intrigued, even more so considering how delicious the guy says it is and that there's only one barrel remaining. He decides to pursue it upon hearing the owners are hoping to reopen and could use the money to

THE STORY:

You know that feeling you get when you see characters in a TV show eating something, and suddenly you are craving it like nobody's business? This happened to me with this book. I'm dying for some beer. I'll probably be running out to the store later, but first, I'll tell you about this book.

Love on Tap brings two characters together from opposite sides of the supply chain. Wyatt Montgomery needs a spectacular beer to reinvigorate his struggling gastropub in Denver, and Bec Dempsey need

Love on Tap was such a fun contemporary romance. For someone who hates beer like me I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book with all the talk of beer, but really I found how passionate these characters were about it really interesting. Plus, while there was a lot of beer talk in this book, at its core this book was a really well-written love story. The way that author set up the romance between Wyatt and Bec was really nice. I liked that things started out as strictly a business transact ...more

After being burnt it's hard to trust againW, however if you want to move forward that's just what you have to do. You'll also have to mend broken fences. Who will win in the end, the brewmaster or the pubmaster? Or is there a chance that just maybe they could both come out on top again? You'll have to read Love On Tap to find out!

A delightful story involving the latest concept in beer brewing, craft beers, and small independent breweries. The story started out strong, with a attention grabbing concept, building momentum as the story and characters evolved. The author created very believable and likable characters, with chemistry and personalities. As part of the Brewing Love Trilogy, I look forward to reading the remaining books...I'm sure the stories and characters will be just as enchanting.

Thank you NetGalley. I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

The only reason why I liked this book was because of Wyatt, the male MC. He was passionate about his business and wasn't afraid to work hard and go after what he wanted. He was great. Bec, the female MC, on the other hand, annoyed me. I found her to be weak, whiny, and immature. I didn't like her brother, Liam either. Sigh. I would've given this book a higher rating if I didn't dislike Bec and Liam as much as I

This is a fascinating novel by new-to-me author Meg Benjamin. The idea of a love story set against the beer brewing industry is a new one for me and a refreshing change...pun intended!

Wyatt Montgomery needs to get his hands on what he believes is the last remaining barrel of Zoria; an aged imperial stout from the now de-funked Antero Brewing. Quaff, the gastropub he manages needs to pull out all the stops to keep up with the new gastropub on the block if they are to maintain their status of top

This was definitely a sweet read. Wyatt was a very good man from start to finish. I loved the way he went after what he wanted. And Bec was a magnet for him. He was so drawn to her. Their connection was automatic and fast. She was very independent and wanted to prove herself, but vulnerable in her friendships and fear of failing. I thought they made a very cute couple. Their story flowed smoothly and ended very sweetly.

3.5 stars.

This was a lovely read and a nice start of a series.

Here we have Wyatt and Bec, both devoting their lives to the food industry, with Wyatt the owner of a gastrobar and Bec the owner of a brewery that didn’t work as well as she hoped.

These two really needed each other. Bec really needed his help to start over, and mostly to show her she wasn’t a screw up and that people cared for her more than she realized, and to help her face the people she disappointed. As for Wyatt, he really needed

Love on Tap by Meg Benjamin.......I enjoyed the story and it kept me flipping pages. The characters were fun and enjoyable. I loved seeing the story unfold for Wyatt and Bec.

Meg Benjamin’s latest book is different from some of her other novels I have read. Still. I enjoyed Love on Tap. The story-line is engaging. As for the characters, I liked Wyatt the most, perhaps because he is more of an upfront kind of guy. Bec, the female lead, was a contraction; strong but could come across as weak, confident but self-doubting too, and lastly, untrusting but with personal hidden agendas. Maybe that makes her seem more real since we are all capable of being all these things at ...more

This was a fun book about two people who fall in love over craft beer—one the struggling owner of a gastropub who needs the holy grail of beers to beef up business and one who hold the key to said holy grail.

While I liked the plot of the book, the characters fell a little short for me. I get it. Bec was burned by her former lover, who took off with all her money (and her brother’s), not to mention her heart. Why should she trust someone else? She probably shouldn’t, but she was just so

Once again, Meg Benjamin has written a romance that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I've read most of her books, and she specializes in writing characters that are just genuinely nice and romances that always leave me smiling. This start to a new series is set in Colorado, one of my favorite states, and features beer, which is pretty unusual for a romance, even more so because Bec, the heroine is a brewmaster, a profession which is pretty heavily tilted toward men. Poor Bec made the mistake of tru ...more

Love on Tap by Meg Benjamin is the first book from her brand new trilogy, Brewing Love. The creative cover and the book blurb is what drew me into this original romance. This book can be read as a standalone.

Love on Tap is about brewmaster and cheese-maker Bec Demepsey, and gastropub owner Wyatt Montgomery. Due to circumstances beyond her control, Bec had to close down her family's brewery. She still owns the building's contents, and one barrel of Zoria, a very special blend of stout. Bec has dr
