Will Larter left this review about Brews of the World

This is a bottle shop with a keg-only bar counter on the right hand wall. The owner was welcoming and friendly but the beers all seemed very samey to me: pale and hoppy (and, naturally, cold and gassy too) with the only dark beer a chocolate stout with coconut and raspberry. Most of them quite strong too, with prices to match. (See photo of beer blackboard.) I was on the point of walking out without bothering with a drink, but decided to overcome my prejudices to the extent of a third of the 4.5% pale from Verdant with the name There Will Be No Intervals. It was very cold and didn't do anything for me, apart from making me £2 poorer. I was told that the long term plan is to have cask beers too, but this depends on developing enough trade to be confident of selling them before they go off.

Quinno _ left this review about Brews of the World

A bottle shop (with an oddly limited bottled range though there’s loads of old Bass) with an on-licence and a small amount of seating, dominated by a long main table which at least cultivates convivial drinking, all housed in a spartan rectangular high-ceilinged room which smells of new and is a bit cold. No ale here but 10 craft taps are available, all UK bar one from the US (Left Hand Brewing 25th Anniversary) alongside a variety of chilled bottles and cans. Classic FM was the choice of background music, unusual but highbrow. Friendly owner. Quite idiosyncratic here which I liked, though it won’t be to everyone’s taste.
