Tim's Tavern was founded in 1957 by Tim Triner. Originally named Jack & Tim's, Tim ventured on his own a few years later.
Tim was a former professional baseball player for the Hartford Braves, the Boston Braves, and the Milwaukee Brewers in the old international league. In 1939, Tim pitched the McKinley Bulldogs to a state championship. Teammates and McKinley faithfuls continue to patronize Tim's Tavern to this day. Tim's dynamic personality and popularity built Tim's Tavern into one of the top "beer joints" around.
During the early 1960s, Tim developed a "beer battered fish" recipe that was second to none! Originally, a piece of fish sold for a mere $.10 each, to go along with a $.10 draft beer.
