Galaxy Hut Adding New Taps

Galaxy HutGalaxy Hut in Clarendon (2711 Wilson Blvd) may be small, but it’s getting an even bigger draft beer selection.

Owner Lary Hoffman raised alarm on social media Tuesday morning when he posted on Facebook and Twitter: “Galaxy Hut for sale.” In fact, Hoffman is selling the bar’s old tap system. It’s listed for $1,500 in a Craigslist ad.

Customers panicked that the sale was the precursor to the entire bar being sold, but Hoffman told that’s not the case. He’s upgrading from a 20-tap system (currently down to 14 due to a broken “kegerator”) to a 28-tap system.

“Just upgrading the beer system, not selling the Hut,” Hoffman wrote in an email. “I tripled the size of our walk in cooler last year, this is the second phase of upgrading to 28 taps all pouring from the keg room.”

Hoffman couldn’t say specifically when the new tap system would be installed and ready for use, but estimated it would be a few weeks. He said no other major improvements to Galaxy Hut are in store.
