This is a decent sized, modern craft beer bar with its own on-site brewery, all brought to you by the people behind the station tap chain (York Tap, Sheffield Tap, Euston Tap etc...). It wouldn’t be a serious craft beer bar without the inevitable concrete floor, white tile walls and undressed ceiling, but enough thought has been put into this place to elevate it above your bog-standard hipster outlet, creating a more inclusive feeling space which is aided by its excellent location just up the road from the station. Most of the seating comes in the form of low backed padded bar stools which serve numerous high tables, mainly running in long rows through the centre of the room. There are large brewing vessels down the left hand side of the room and storage tanks along the opposite wall where the long, straight servery can be found, all of which makes you feel a bit like you’re sat in the middle of brewing operations, although there was no such activity evident on our Saturday afternoon visit. The front windows have neon pub signs in them and look out to a small pavement seating area which looked like a last resort option given the number of stinking busses that pull up directly alongside. Decor comes mainly in the form of a large beer mat collection plus some really cool posters for previous Leeds Beer Festivals. Music played quietly in the background throughout our stay and a few people were eating from the handy pizza menu.
The beer range is as wide and eclectic as in the more established branches of this chain, with cask options extending to Anarchy Hard Times, Wild Beer Millionaire, Oakham JHB, Tapped Rodeo, Kirkstall Dissolution, Gun Zamzama, Cromarty Atlantic Drift, Roosters Highway 51, Atom Blonde Ale and Exit 33 Blonde, plus one I couldn’t read and one real cider. An extensive line-up, but turnover seemed to be rapid and my pint of the Dissolution was excellent as a result. A large beer menu lists a comprehensive selection of bottled and canned beers to cater for most tastes.
This is another great little bar from this very reliable pub group and a good addition to the already very strong Leeds pub scene. This felt a bit like a craft beer bar to take people who don’t like craft beer to – a notion that the vast cask range seems to support – and I will most certainly be checking this place out again when I’m next in the area.

Another from the Pivni stable and, characteristically, this is more a bar, or perhaps more accurately, an alehouse than a boozer.
It has large picture windows at the front, bar to the right with beers offered named above the bar, a tall table in front of the bar with stools, various tables and chairs and tanks on either side of the room.
The staff are young, friendly, hipsterishly fashionable, knowledgeable and patient as they need to be given the vast choice available.
Beers on fall in to three categories: tank, keg and cask. I was simply too weary (as a newt) to list all the beers on but it's a wide choice. I did note that the cask selection was good without being outstanding although they do seem to always offer something on the slightly stronger side, Thornbridge Crackendale on our visit which was very good. Everything else we tried was in fine shape.
Close to the station and, as such, probably the first visit if arriving by train with some risk of it being the last.

Doesn't look much from the outside,housed on the ground floor of a modern building ,but there is a treat instore when inside.It's popular with younger drinkers but the kind that really appreciate beer in all it's forms,and the choice here is vast.It's also the home of Tapped brewery with the coppers and settling tanks to the left,and even lager settling tanks to the right.Furniture is a mix of traditional wooden with some high tables and beer choice is indicated by large cards running the full length of the right handside bar,split into three categories namely ale (13 handpumps) ,keg and tank (a combined 15 taps) including around 5 tank conditioned beers from Tapped.
My Kirkstall Disollution IPA was spot on,the style choice was wide with lots of Locale and my next visit will be much longer giving more chance to sample other fine ales.
Like the other "Taps",this bar showcases superb beer and really is a must visit when in Leeds.It's busy because it's good,so expect a lively atmosphere at peak times.Cant wait for the revisit !
