Will Larter left this review about Offbeat Brewery

Like a number of other recently opened small breweries, Offbeat is housed in a functional but not particularly attractive industrial unit. Part of the space not needed for brewing has been adapted for use as a bar. It is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday only from 5pm (though sometimes closed if they have another event on elsewhere - see website for details at https://offbeatbrewery.wordpress.com/stillbrewing/ or contact them via Facebook or Twitter). With a forthcoming visit from Luton Town to the nearby stadium in mind, I contacted Offbeat in October and asked if they would fancy opening pre-match, which they were happy to do. I arrived shortly after 12 noon to find some of my football friends already present and supping beer. There's just one hand pump on the bar, most of the brewery's beers being kegged. I tried the Wild Blackberry Mild, which did indeed have a readily identifiable flavour of blackberries, but only after I had nursed the glass in the palms of my hands to raise the temperature to something drinkable, and swirled the beer around to release some of the carbon dioxide. I returned after meeting some more Hatters in the nearby Borough and this time went for the Odd Pod Vanilla Stout, which went through the same process before becoming a very nice drink. I can understand why some breweries are producing their beers in this format nowadays. While I agree that it's better to have a beer that doesn't deteriorate like a cask beer does if not sold within four or five days, I'll argue with anyone who tries to tell me that the beers are better when full of gas and freezing cold.
