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.

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 a fun, quick read. Interesting characters, especially Carol. The villain was a bit over the top, but the romance was good, and I enjoyed the "complete three tasks and I'll make the deal" trope that then morphed into other acts of kindness. Might be worth looking for the other series entries. Beer and gourmet food - what's not to like?

I received this book for free, in exchange for an honest review.

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

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.

A light and sexy look inside brewing a great stout. If you love a romance that is slow, smooth and layered with a few surprises, then you will enjoy this first installment from the Brewing Love series. The characters are charming, relatable and willing to do almost anything for those they love.

Grab an iced cold beer and sit down for a romance that is sure to leave you with the perfect amount of sizzle.

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.

I’d give it a 3.5, rounded up to 4 here. A nice, sweet story, but maybe a little unrealistic in how quickly our leads fell in love. Their emotional reactions felt true to life, though.

This was my first read from Meg Benjamin and it certainly won't be the last. Now I've always been a sucker for books that combine anything brewing with romance being a bit of a beer nerd myself, so I was especially happy when I came across this book and found out the heroine was the actual brew master of the story! Female brewers are few and far between, so that aspect made the story even more exciting and interesting for me.

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

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.

When he hears about a legendary beer that was only brewed once, he decides to track down the brewmaster to see if there is any left that he can buy.

It's interesting enough. I liked both main characters, and story was good too. It was a good read and I enjoyed it. Although, in my opinion, it's best not to read this book in one sitting. ;) It's a kind of book you should take your time reading or else you might find some scenes boring.
Bec's business dreams was ruined when her business partner left, and her brother decided not to help her with their brewery. All she has left is one barrel of her beer, she thinks of it as her lucky charm, magic.

I really liked the brewing aspect of this and the way Bec and Wyatt met and weren't immediately friendly. The tasks she gave him to sell the beer were a fun aspect.

Bec herself was amusing and a bit of a spitfire. Wyatt was an interesting typical city guy in a tourist town. I didn't necessarily feel like I knew them that well though. Hints of their pasts were shared but nothing enough to make an emotional impact.

I didn't care for Liam, Bec's brother. I think he was supposed to be seen as protecti

Bec Dempsey lost her business when her major backer decided to end their partnership, but she's chosen not to give up on her dreams. Selling the last barrel of her legendary Zoria imperial stout to Wyatt Montgomery may be her one and only chance of re-opening Antero Brewing, but he's a city-slicker and she's already been burned once by a man like Wyatt. However, once she realizes he's nothing like her ex, will she give him a chance?

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

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

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.

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

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 story features Wyatt Montgomery and Bec Dempsey. He wants her last barrel of craft beer and is willing to jump through hoops to get it. He just didn't expect his biggest competitor to come along and start throwing money around, trying to buy it out from under him. Throughout the quest for the last barrel of craft beer there's a quiet romance brewing.

The storyline was good. The characters were well developed and definitely added to the story but I didn't feel a whole lot of emotion
