Yes, its a brewery which may engender some sort of innate sense of wonder in at least half the population... but there are so many that are better than this disappointment. Where to start...
Firstly, the service is absolutely terrible. We arrived and spent close to 10 minutes at the counter waiting to be served while the staff talked amongst themselves. When one of them finally came over he treated us like we had interupted him, not like he was there to actually serve anyone. He then decided that he wouldn't serve us without us providing identification (we are in our 30s), which was clearly his attempt at some sort of power trip. He then chose to make rude comments about the photos on the identification.
Secondly, the decor is sad. It appears that it may be an attempt to be "kitsch", but sadly it resembles something more like an old, rundown RSA. This wasn't helped by the tables of pensioners that were sitting around (nothing against pensioners)... To top it off you cant even take the beer away to enjoy it in a nicer location, as the brewery has had it off-license suspended... meaning you can only buy it to drink there. (They were also displaying an expired on-license, which they quickly changed when I pointed it out).
Thirdly, if you actually get to trying the beer you will discover how average it is. Yes it is beer, but with a whole brewery of fancy equipment you'd think that they could manage to produce something with a good balance of malt body and hop aroma. Sadly, all I got from their beers was wet cardboard and a little horse blanket... not exactly desirable qualities in a "craft beer".
Overall, poor service, poor management, poor quality product... You can do much better than this place. Look elsewhere.
