Bucking Fastard left this review about The Last Heretic

Listed in the 2020 GBG ,this is an interesting shop conversion with lots of wrought iron decoration,modern and subtle drop down lighting and a row of pews along each side with traditional tables and stools,which helps conversation between punters flow naturally.The raised serving area has a seperate cold room for the stillage,while further back a corridor leads to the loos and a small beer garden.
The young barman explaining that there is a sister micro in Swadlincote and there are plans for another opening in Burton,encouraging in these Covid times.He also played his part in getting conversation moving,and some very useful curry information,as well as good gossip about other boozers in Burton,was gathered from him and other customers.
The ale selection is eclectic ,expect 4 on although the "up next list" may come in the play as long as conditioning is felt fine.On entering the ale choice was Potbelly Hedonism,Tiny Rebel Five Dollar Shake (NBSS 2.5 but coming to an end),4T Stout Detectives (NBSS 4.5) and Blue Monkey MPA (NBSS 4.5,off the "up next "list.)There was also an excellent North Brewing Transmission IPA available in cans as a takeout to the dry curry house close by next to the Coopers.Besides ale there are ciders and some key keg beer,plus interesting infused spirits such as Titanic Plum Porter gin.

With ale quality this high,and a great micro atmosphere,this is the pub of choice close to Burton station.Dont miss out when in town.

Oblong room painted in an ill-advised green grey colour all round so gloom central, as well as being almost empty on my Thursday night visit bar some Ladz with Epic Bantz. Four ales available from a cold store, quite an eclectic choice (Brewhouse & Kitchen, Brewers Droop, Abstract Elephant and Isle of Purbeck) and five ciders plus some foreign bottles. My Elephant, whilst ostensibly in decent nick, wasn’t a particularly pleasant beer (the brewer subsequently told me that the beer was brewed in Autumn the previous year and was past its BBE…). Didn’t really care for this one the weakest of the three Burton micros in my view.

I'm not the man to be reviewing Micros but I popped in as it was in the GBG 2018.

Its a shop. The beers are kept on racking in a seperate glassed off airlock room.

I had a beautiful looking Heacham Gold but it was absolutely headless and lifeless.

Not my cup of tea but give it a go if you like micros.

Visit blogged at Classic Pub with good Burton Bridge Beer.

Worth checking out.

Third decent micro pub and the fullest of them all. Good real ale selection and is worth a return when quieter so I can see what I'm drinking.

The Last Heretic, or should I say the last pint, before heading to the train station. This was a friendly and comfortable micro, which is well described, only to add the lighting was subdued in the evening from the glass orb ceiling lamps and some candles. The barmaid was hip and trendy and can only be described as a female hipster. Four ales to choose from, so we went for the Blue Monkey Infinity, and XT 25.

This is another fairly typical Burton micropub consisting of a narrow room with a wooden floor and grey walls.
Four beers were available Tower Gone For A Burton, a Muirhouse beer, an Osset beer and RAT Rat in the Kitchen. I went for the Tower beer (£3.00) which unfortunately was rather flat. Whether this was down to the brewery or the pub I'll never know but I would give this place another go.

Old Boots left this review about The Last Heretic

A single room micro almost next door to the Roebuck. There's bench seating down each side at a mix of tables and the counter is at back on the right. No pulls as the beers are fetched by the landlord from the glass cellar/cupboard behind the counter all served by gravity. The usual offices are up a corridor to the side of the cellar. Four beers and four ciders were on when I visited, again excellent condition as expected in a micro. A painted sign on the wall explains the name.
