Pub SignMan left this review about Taproom by Brixton Village

This is a small craft beer bar operating inside Brixton’s popular covered market. The bar occupies a simple market unit, with enough space for a servery to the rear and a high table or two under the front window, but as with most of the market’s eateries, the bulk of the seating is out on the walkways. The bar counter has sheet metal frontage and a cheap formica top, whilst the bar back is dominated by the keg taps and large beer boards. A small area to the left could theoretically accommodate a bit more seating, but it was instead being used as a storage space for spare furniture. The market’s wide walkways allow plenty of seating to be laid out, most of it under the bar’s front windows and along the opposite side of the passage. The market has a lively feel, with customers from the neighbouring restaurants rubbing shoulders with punters from the bar, as the lines between the seating areas for each blur somewhat. Dancehall tunes were being played throughout the market, but there was no music in the bar itself.
There’s no cask ale here, but eleven keg lines offered a wide selection of craft beers from local brewers and some of the more reputable nationwide producers. I tried a decent pint of the London Beer Factory Voodoo Stout which was priced at £6.00, as were many of the other beers, irrespective of their strength. There was just one lone barman running the show when I arrived and when he realised that all of the seating was occupied, he brought out an additional table and chairs so that I would have somewhere to sit.
This is a bit of a niche place that can’t really be described as a pub, but instead somewhere to check out some decent local craft beers in a lively environment, perhaps in combination with a meal from one of the many restaurants in the market. I enjoyed the beer and thought the service was good, but drinking in a market walkway and paying premium prices for the privilege isn’t really something I’d want to repeat too often.

Small craft beer bar in the Brixton Village market. There are only three or four tables in the market passage. We were probably lucky to grab one, especially as our next intended stop (Lost In Brixton) was supposedly fully booked.

This place did exceed our expectations though. Whilst there's no real ale, there was a reasonable craft selection - Brick Helles Lager & Pale, Pillars Brew, Signature Polyphonic Peach & Roadie, Good Vibrations NEPA, Crate Cider, London Beer Factory Breaker & Brixton Low Voltage. I opted for the sour beer (Polyphonic Peach), which as with all sour beers was very much an acquired taste.

The market is quite a lively place. We went back later in the evening to eat and it was busier still. As such, it's quite a decent atmosphere and is a good spot for some people watching!
