Pub SignMan left this review about Café Beermoth

This is a spacious modern beer bar operated by the owners of a bottle shop in the Northern Quarter. The pub has a typical, modern craft beer bar feel to it, with a large, single room set-up that sees the servery run along the right hand half of the rear wall. The bar has a fairly drab, utilitarian counter, hop lined counter, handpulls along the bar back and windows behind that look through to the white tiled cellar room out the back. Rough cut wooden ledges with high stools run across the space opposite the bar whilst a series of padded banquette booths track the long row of front windows, each partitioned by a nice wooden frame structure that has been liberally decorated with more hops. The left side of the room has regular tables and chairs for the most part, plus a Chesterfield sofa to the far left next to the side windows, all under a series of shelves holding a beer bottle collection. The usual craft beer decorating company must’ve been employed here, as the walls are all painted grey, the ceiling is a mess of exposed utilities and decor is an afterthought. Somehow, this didn’t grate on me as much as it might normally, perhaps because the comfy seating, muted lighting and suitable background music helped make the place feel a lot more comfortable than it sounds on paper. That being said, I did visit at quite a quiet period and can imagine the room getting loud and echoey with a large crowd in.
A board above the bar details the full beer range but I couldn’t figure out which beers were on cask, so a very helpful barman patiently talked me through all the cask options which amounted to Thornbridge Jaipur, Red Willow Smokeless, Torrside Monsters Imperial Porter, Hawkshead Lakeland Gold, Siren Undercurrent, Vocation Chop and Change and Fallen Local Motive. A further ten craft keg brews were also available including a few rarely seen, interesting sounding European beers. My pint of the Chop and Change cost £4.00 and was in excellent condition.
This felt like it landed somewhere between your typical craft beer bar and a more well thought-out, contemporary ale house, without really delivering either. I thought the beer range and quality was up there with anything I’ve come across in Manchester and was more than happy settling down with my pint but question whether the beer alone is enough to keep me here for a longer session. Probably needs a revisit at a busier time to properly assess but I left with a favourable impression and would suggest it’s a must-visit for those seeking good craft beer bars in the city centre.

A modern opened out bar with the emphasis firmly on the beer,the cask line up on my visit is ably described by Bucking Farstard below, but I went keg and had a really quite good Brew By Numbers DDH Pale Ale. There is little in the way of any pub atmosphere here but there was a certain buzz about it, if beer is your main interest then this is a must.

I did make this newish entry to the Manchester drinking scene (opened December 2015) during the official PuG crawl on the Friday afternoon and was also impressed. Got in here before the Friday after work rush and it was comfortably busy but not overly so. It’s a very modern bar by design but is well done to allow plenty of space for vertical drinking as well as ample seating including several bench booths along the windows on the Spring Gardens side. And with a craft and cask range of beers as described by others below there should be something for everyone here.
I had a very enjoyable Durham Karma Citra which I went for as much for the comedy name as for the beer style. I can understand why this one is gaining plaudits.
The only small issue we had was making sure we didn’t go to the wrong Beermoth establishment and finding it because whilst the address is given as Spring Gardens the entrance is actually in Brown Street.
