The famous bar measures 405 feet, 10 inches, and is even taller than the nearby Perry’s Victory and International Peace Monument. With an impressive 160 bar stools, 56 beer taps, and a seating capacity of 1,200! On busy nights, the bar employs over 20 bartenders and opens two extra bars in the back and on the building’s sides.

Tippers and the Beer Barrel Saloon are both located on the site of the famous old Colonial Building. This historically beautiful wooden structure tragically burned to the ground in 1988. For just shy of 100 years, the Colonial Building was home to various businesses, including a dance hall, skating rink, and a bowling alley.
