This is a proper micropub with no TVs or other distractions. Although it also bills itself as a bottle shop this is very much a side-line as it's much more micropub than off licence. It's slightly on the larger size as these places go consisting of a wider rectangular room with some low furnishings to the left and a fair bit of floor space to the right where there is also some shelving for tins and bottles. Unusually this building has a cellar which has had cooling added and is where the draught beers and presumably the empties are kept. There are a couple of chilled cabinets behind the bar, one with boxes of cider and the other with soft drinks and the odd wine plus tins and bottles of beers. I saw no evidence of any spirits.
There is a bar with five hand pumps plus a few keg options that I didn't really take much notice of. The five beers were Mobberley 1924, Purple Moose Chocolate Moose, Great Orme Welsh Black, Conwy Kodiak and Spitting Feathers Repetitive Strain Injury. I went for the 1924 (£3.20), Chocolate Moose (£3.40), Kodiak (£3.40) and Repetitive Strain Injury (£3.60), all prices prior to discount and all in first class condition.
I thought this was an excellent micropub. It's GBG 2018 listed.

The Bay Hop micro pub was a very welcome addition to the Colwyn Bay Real Ale scene with just a Wetherspoons and one other pub selling cask beer in the immediate central area. Four to five ales are usually on sale, with a mix of local ales and those from further afield. It is also a bottle shop with many ales on view in the large glass fronted fridge behind the bar.
