Come and join us in the heart of our brewery for samples of our Summer range. Pick from one of the options above, and look forward to being served at your table. We'll give you tokens upon arrival (1 or 5, according to your ticket) to order beer with and have beer tokens (should you run out of the ones included in your ticket price), take home bottles, and merchandise for sale during your session. We'll also have soft drinks and natural wine by the glass for anyone in your party that prefers other delicious beverages.
When your session is done you can take your glass home with you or swap it for a take out bottle of beer.

Email email@example.com with any questions, or group/private event booking enquiries.
Is there an age restriction?
Yes indeed! We operate a challenge 25 policy, so if you're lucky enough to look under 25 please bring government issued ID.
Are pets allowed?
As much as we love animals we have to say no. Our brewery tap is right in the heart of our production brewery and high food hygiene standards and pets don't mix.
How do I get there?
We're a short walk from Piccadilly train station and an even shorter walk from New Islington tram stop. Feel free to cycle, we have a secure area for your bike. If someone insists on driving you here we have 10 parking spaces outside, with plenty of parking on neighbouring streets (such as Adair St).
What 5 beers will I get?
You can take your pick. We'll bring some samples to your table of our draft beer and talk you through any bottles we have (if they're a different batch, or style for example). Choose to stick with one beer you really love, or try all 5 lines, it'll be your call. We'll pour you 1/3s of strong beer, 1/2s of medium strength beer, and 2/3s of lower strength beer.
What if I don't want to drink all 5 beers?
Well, we certainly won't see you miss out. You'll be able to exchange any unused tokens for bottles of beer to take out.
Can I stay for two sessions back to back?
I'm afraid we've got to be very careful. We're on a short leash with our (rather worried) landlords and absolutely can't afford to get a bad reputation caused by drunken or loutish behaviour near our brewery. We are very good neighbours to those businesses and residents around us, and simply can't let that slip at all. Brewery taps are a new thing for a lot of people, and we're really committed to setting up a high standard – great beer in a great environment. If you're adamant you want to hang out for two sessions, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see what we can do for you.
Can I book in for a stag do or lads day out?
This is another tricky subject (see above). As a general rule we aren't open to bookings of large parties for stag dos or groups of lads. If you're the friendliest bunch of respectful chaps please drop us a line at email@example.com and we'll see what we can do for you.

At the heart of our new venture is a deep love for the changing seasons, each bringing with it an invitation to enjoy the scarcity and abundance our natural environment offers.
We work to showcase the ebb and flow by using seasonal ingredients at their very best, and taking inspiration from the change of lifestyle each season creates.
Along the way there’ll be both old recipes and new experiments, as we use the best of both traditional and cutting edge techniques to create modern seasonal beer.
