Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Wheelie Thirsty

Fixed Wheel Brewery outlet, larger inside than the second, short-lived branch in Lye, and perhaps more of a mini-pub than a micro one since it has two linked rooms plus some wooden benches out on the front patio area. Plainly furnished and sparsely decorated, with a few cycling-related features about the place. With two banks of three handpumps, I found five of their own beers - including the Whitey Australian Pale (£3.30) - plus Oakham Inferno as a guest. Additionally, up to 17 further beers and ciders can be dispensed from taps on the side wall behind the counter, and the selection of 14 available on my visit offered a diverse range.

The Good Beer Guide 2020 has the Wheelie Thirsty in Lye - but it appears that this has closed down and they have moved here.

I'm sure its presented in the same format - a brightly lit, micro pub selling all the fixed wheel breweries wares. Wooden tables, wooden seats, scatter cushions.

Stout had just won Champion Winter Beer of Great Britain - so it made sense to sample that.

I agree with Delboy below, as l am also a big fan of Fixed Wheel beers and have visited their Brewery Tap in Blackheath, along with their Wheelie Thirsty micro pub in Lye. We visited this micropub last Friday and had a very enjoyable visit. There were six handpumps, serving five Fixed Wheel beers and their guest beer was Oakham Inferno. On arrival I went for the meal deal, which was a pint of stout, cob and a packet of crisps for £5.50. They also had a choice of 17 beers and ciders from a bank of taps, down the right hand side wall of the bar.
The interior décor was quite similar to their micro in Lye, with a reclaimed pine timber bar area, some timber cladded walls and cream painted walls. This former Midland Bank is a good size with two rooms, knocked into one, plus an outside patio seating area along the front. Good beer, friendly and efficient service at the bar and friendly locals, well worth a visit in my opinion.
