A shop conversion micro which celebrates beer in all it's forms,there is an impressive can display on the left wall,lots of pine furniture in the front room with the bar directly ahead.It's worth wandering around as down the corridor there is a side snug and a rear vault plus a door to outside.There is a distinct chip board smell to this rear area ,so it maybe a new feature.
There is a heavy metal soundtrack but played at a sensible volune and the 13 keg selections looked interesting and innovative.
There were 3 real ales on my trip in Verdant Future You (NBSS 4.5 served in a dimple mug) ,Harviestoun Sciehallion and Glass House Shiro served by an excellent barman who gave great beer advice and was most engaging.Pricing maybe considered steep for Stourbridge and it closes at 10pm even on a Saturday but I would include this on any crawl around town.I really enjoyed it.

Bottle shop with a bar. A small amount of seating with a lot of middle-class mincers standing around taking-up space (we assumed there had been a ‘happening’ of some sort). Three cask with a shed of keg. My Bristol Beer Factory Standing on the Barn was in great shape (NBSS 4) which left me with a better impression of the place than may have been the case otherwise. I’d like to give it another go when quieter. 7.5

Interesting addition to the Stourbridge drinking scene.

From my conversation with the barman, it started off as a bottle shop just as covid struck and then they added in the bar.

Racks (and racks) of cans, bottles from UK Craft Brewers and German/Belgian traditional and more unusual. Some previously unseen mixed fermentation 750ml bottles from Deya provide an indication of how unusual the selection is.

Front facing bar with a keg wall (about 10) and three cask. Some ciders. Looked like a reasonably varied spirits selection, with Whisky getting its own list. I went for a Christmas Delirium - which they are prepared to serve in pints to those with deep pockets and nothing else to do for the rest of the afternoon.

A comfortable experience and I will be re-visiting.
