please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

As might be expected, the beers on offer yesterday were in excellent condition. The two of us were able to try all of the offerings with the 6x 1/3rd pint vouchers that were included with our two museum entry tickets. Our favourite was the on-site brewed Charrington IPA; also available were Offilers’ Best Bitter (again brewed on site), Magpie's Five for Silver and 3 from Nottingham Brewery.

Part of the National Brewing Museum and in the dark shadow of Coors. Is this the kind of Brewery Tap that we want to showcase to the world? The White Shield microbrewery next door must be ashamed to take their beers in. Beers were far too cold and the design of the place was a sub-standard version of a chain pub. As one of our party said did nobody have the wit to go for a Sheffield Tap type of design. If you do go to the museum I'd suggest you walk out of the door and head for the Cooper's Tavern in Cross Street - worth the walk.

Modern bar selling Worthington ales plus guests, Beer quality very good.

Great that the Brewing Museum is open again. "Bass" has been quietly dropped from the museum name (inevitable since museum site is provided by Coors, but Bass brand is owned by their competitors, Interbrew - oh, aren't we grateful for the government's "Beer Orders" that dealt with the 'problem' of tied houses selling brewery's own products at affordable prices!
Bar area is indeed a bit clinical, but adjacent eating area is very spacious, with chunky wooden furniture and historical posters etc. displayed on double-height walls. Food menu offers good range.
Apart from the standard Worthington's White Shield, other products from the micro-brewery within the museum were available, including 'Spring Shield'.
Museum admission includes vouchers for beer tasting: four quarter-pint tokens, that can be all spent on one pint.

Now the National Brewery Centre tap. Beer was on good form. Pleasant modern surroundings but a bit soul less.

Corporate blandness. 3 casks made in the White Shield microbrewery, but served by modern chrome hand pumps. This place lacks soul. It's all about gleaming surface and no depth. Rate 3.
