Entrance needs a sign since you need to either enter through the sports bar on the first floor or through the alley next to it, neither of which has a sign. Once you get there, there is a sign next to the elevator and stairs, neither of which tells you what floor you need to be on. Combined with minimal online presence, you sort of need to be in the known it seems. Once you get there, you’re definitely somewhere different, a modern taproom, white tiles, big, bright thanks to ceiling window, gorgeous blue design. Not much atmosphere but looks pretty and different from any other bar I visited in Belfast. Bit too squeaky clean but nice. They have 6 of their own beers listed as on tap, maybe a bit more since menu wasn’t up to date. Also some guests (Ireland + UK), wine and macro taps like Heineken. Small can selection of modern craft Irish and UK beers. Pints are 5 – 6 euro, no beers of their exceeding 6.5 % ABV. ½ + 2/3 pints available as well as flights which are served in pretty ceramic trays. Beers are modern craft beer style, APA, IPA, Kettle Sour, hoppy pilsner, Stout and Christmas Stout. None were hugely exciting but decent, more in line with craft a decade a go but with less hops. Service was friendly for sure, didn’t interact much. Not the most exciting of places or breweries but it does make an interesting contrast with every other beer place in Belfast it seems.

Vegan Junk Food bar as the name says now with many location, only rating since already here. Been to a few locations, love the food, pure excess but like it a bit less now that it has become bit too gimmicky with wacky colored buns etc. which adds nothing and takes away a bit. Few times bad luck with waiting times at other locations. Beer is Two Chefs and Heineken. There is a beer specially made for the bars by Two Chefs but no guarantee that it will be available. Not a beer place.

Separate from the brewery now, coffee available, giftpacks, their own beers and local produce with brick stones, wood and old timey. Not something I am in need but nicely done.
