ANAHEIM, Calif., Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer and Disneyland Resort announced Black Tap will bring its award-winning burgers and famous CrazyShake™ milkshakes to The Happiest Place On Earth in 2018. The opening marks Black Tap's first California location and it will be located at Downtown Disney® District.
"We can't wait to share the magic of Black Tap with guests from all over the world," says Black Tap owner and Michelin Star awarded chef Joe Isidori. "From delicious burgers to awesome CrazyShake™ milkshakes, Black Tap will be the cherry on top of an incredible experience at Disneyland Resort."

Black Tap has quickly expanded with five locations in New York, and is growing its international presence with new locations in Dubai and Geneva. Black Tap's first U.S. location outside of New York will open in Las Vegas at The Venetian in December 2017.
