It's been a few years since I visited the Brewery Tap so was pleased to re-visit on a recent Saturday evening. The main room was pretty full but there were a couple of tables free in the smaller room off to the right. However it is fair to say that most of the character is in the fascinating main room, which I am led to believe is a former Jacobean banqueting hall. This is the brewery tap for Spitting Feathers so naturally their beers dominate the eight hand pulls, but I also observed Marble Pint and Cheddar Valley cider on the pumps.

Food is served, for those so inclined.

Definitely plenty to choose from and an interesting building. Well worth a visit and I shall try not to leave it as long next time!

Fabulous main room with a high ceiling and magnificent carved fireplace, plain plastered walls and mostly sympathetic furnishings. Large quarry tiles as flooring. You can see into the cellar as you climb the stairs up to the bar. Eight pulls, one with cider and two with guests, the remaining five had a range of Spitting Feathers beers. Not my favourite brewery but the “Stout” was quite drinkable however at 4.4% it ain’t a stout it’s a weak Porter. There are also single tall keg fonts for Estrella, proper Budvar Budweiser and a couple of Hacker-Pschor beers, a separate low T-bar has half a dozen craft kegs. Didn’t go in the room on the right, although there was an extraordinary young gal in a pink fifties style dress and with purple hair in there.

Located up steps from the street is the Brewery Tap which is in Gamul House, a grade II listed hall. The main bar area is in a high curved ceilinged rendered room with wooden beams in the roof space. Standard furniture is found throughout and the bar is in the right rear corner. As the name suggests, this is a place for beer fans with eight cask ales being available alongside some craft keg products. This is home to the Spitting Feathers Brewery so their Special, Empire, Mustn’t Grumble and Thirst Quencher were available alongside Broadoak’s Crimson King, Wantsum’s Black Pig, Bragdy Twt Lol Glog and Salopian’s Flash Point. I went for a pint of the citrusy Thirst Quencher which was very good. Locally sourced food was advertised, but I didn’t spot a menu.
The lack of television and music makes this place a perfect spot for lovers of beer and beer related chat. Customers can even take in their four-legged friends, with treats available from the bar. I found the service to be very friendly and will be sure to revisit next time I am in Chester.
