Keith Murphy and Karl Beisel are inviting you back to middle school. Except, this time, there’s beer. The business partners renovated Manchester’s former Omega building into Murphy’s Taproom after founding the New Hampshire Sports and Social Club, an organization that allows adults to, among other things, hurl squishy balls at one another. With kickball, volleyball, softball, flag football and — of course — dodgeball on the menu of entertainments, Murphy and Beisel have turned your former gym class curriculum into a chance for people to socialize and enter some friendly sports competition.
