Aqualung . left this review about Moonface Brewery & Tap

The microbrewery here isn't even up and running yet but I think it's fair to class the tap as a micropub as there are no TVs, no keg and no music or other electronic distractions. The friendly landlord said that he hoped to be brewing by Easter and that his priority would be historical beers.
The old industrial building has been thoroughly renovated inside and consists of a rectangular room with a door to the rear left leading to the brewery. The bar counter is to the right of that and has stillage with the casks on. The ciders seem to be kept in the brewery and the fact that they do a few gins is the only minor diversion from the micropub template. My only concern is whether a prolonged hot spell would adversely affect the beer but the owner did say that the building was cool even in hot weather.
There were five beers available Muirhouse Magnum Mild, Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale, Black Country Ales Plum Pig Porter, Potbelly Beijing Black and Spitting Feathers
Empire IPA. I tried the Magnum Mild (£3.30), Plum Pig Porter (£3.50) and Empire IPA (£3.90). The Porter was a bit tired but the other two were in very good nick.
This place is well worth a visit and I look forward to a return after they've got the brewing going.
