Real Ale Ray left this review about Tower Brewery Tap

The Tower Brewery can be found in an elegant looking water tower built in 1870. After a lot of hard graft John Mills and his Father opened the brewery in 2001. They also received a Civic Society Award for the restoration of an Industrial building.
Armed with a hand scribbled map and navigating in the dark on a cold winters night, we found the brewery along an unlit road in a small industrial estate. If it had been during the day, we probably could have seen the water tower from a distance.
You enter the brewery through a small door, which is part of two huge double doors. This main area consisted of large stainless steel brewing vessels, a stage for music events and viewing gallery. There was also a spiral staircase near the entrance and a log burning stove along the left hand wall with settees, tables and chairs set out.
The tap room can be found through a door on the right. The tap room was quite small and consisted of some comfortable seating and three hand pumps on a shelf over in the corner, with no bar counter.
I went for the Imperial IPA, which is going to be my beer of the week, truly excellent and only £2.50 a pint. Also tried the Tower Bitter, which was also superb. The main brewery and tap room had low lighting, which gave the impression of the Dickensian period.
The brewery is only open to the public on Fridays 4 - 12pm. Well worth a visit.
