user reviews of Beerdock, Crewe

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

Just to say they now have expanded the range of craft beers on tap. There are now 10 available, plus one cask beer (not always available) and a "Lager tap".

Nothing else changed ...

I’m surprised no-one else has reviewed this place as it is one of the best drinking establishments in town – and the nearest decent place to the railway station. Anyway, just to say that this place has now been extended upstairs, provided much needed extra seating – and higher quality loos ! The decor up there is a bit minimalist, and I prefer to sit downstairs amongst the shelves of bottles. The extra space has enabled them to start up some regular events. Wednesdays are “bring a curry” night, and there are occasional gigs on Mondays or Tuesdays.

I need to be careful what I say here, as I am a regular, and they can probably guess who I am !

Anyway, this is a micro-pub cum bottle shop – claimed to be a unique concept, though I’m not so sure about that. It has up to six craft keg beers on tap, plus one real ale on draught (though that often isn’t available). The keg beers are ever changing and come from all over. Usually the UK (e.g. Thornbridge, Runaway, Brightside, Rat) but ones from Ireland, Germany, USA, and Belgium have been noted. The draught ale is usually fairly local (e.g. Red Willow).

Plus, the walls are absolutely covered in shelves lined with bottles – I’m told that at any one time up to 600 different beers are in stock. Bottles can be either drunk in or taken out. [ Sales are about 50/50 draft / bottles, and 50/50 drink in / take out ]

The bottle stock is constantly changing. Unless it’s a big seller (Thornbridge, Marble etc) once it’s gone chances are it won’t be back in stock. The bottle array is arranged geographically, from Cheshire on the immediate left, through Manchester / Yorkshire / London to Scotland / Wales / Ireland, back down through Europe (mainly Germany / Belgium) to the USA. Note also that a selection of bottles is always kept in the fridge.

Be warned – this place is not cheap ! Prices for the draught range from £3 - £6 per pint. Bottles start at about £3 and can go up to £25 !! [ The large ones on the top shelf ] Nor are prices shown anywhere for the bottles – so you can easily run up a large bill. [ To be fair the staff will warn you if you buy a bottle costing more than about £5 ]

As you might expect, the place is run by a very small team of enthusiastic knowledgeable staff who are only too happy to help. The regular customers often try and help bewildered newcomers as well !

The place is only small and narrow. Seating consists of demountable tables and benches – seating about 20 in total. This is not the place to come if you get claustrophobia, or don’t want to talk to your neighbour !

No music. No food (except nibbles). No TV sports. No mass produced alco-fizz. No wine. No Spirits. Dogs are allowed but must be kept under control in case their wagging tail knocks bottles off the shelf!! Not sure about cats, but you certainly can’t swing them here !

This is the original location of what is intended to be a small chain – they have already opened a branch in Nottingham.

8/10 – a great place but entirely different to a normal pub.
