This pub had a wide and varied range of beers on our visit. The 14 keg options also included three beers from Cloudwater and a comprehensive choice of cans and bottles at the far end of the bar. There was a tap take over on our visit, with two brewers from Wales, showcasing. This consisted of two beers from Waen Brewery and five from Hopcraft. We went for the Hopcraft Perfect Skin, which was excellent.

A rammed opening night in the 16th February saw the latest addition to the Canning Circus and Nottingham drinking scene crash into life. As the new tap for the Totally Brewed team, the pub sits nicely with the Organ Grinder, Falcon, Room with a Brew, Hand & Heart and the Sir John BW, making Canning Circus a real beer destination.

The OverDraught started life as a Nat west bank and was until recently a fancy dress and costume shop. The inside has been stripped back to the raw concrete and brick, featuring the original lift shaft. The décor is contemporary with a leaning to the hipster brigade. Lots of greys and fairy lights along with assorted scrub top tables make the place feel quite modern. The bar is primarily a single room, with a mezzanine at the far end, reached by a short flight of stairs, the toilets are downstairs.

The long resin topped bar has a good assortment of TB beers and a couple of guests, as well as a long line of keg taps on the back wall, using Katana sword handles as levers. Spirits are not currently high on the pubs priority list and the pouring of a G&T seemed to confuse the new barman. At the end of the bar are a couple of fridges with a huge selection of strange beer cans and bottles for consumption in or out.

Music was playing fairly loudly during our visit, but the pub was really over full and I'm sure that it will be moderated as the immediate excitement dies off a bit.

I will certainly be back again, probably when it is a little quieter.
