Occupying the bottom corner of the otherwise huge red-brick building that was the former premises of the Cains brewery, thereís still a strong emphasis on real ales here despite the fact the local brewers beers are no longer served here. You should find a couple of rotating choices here if you make it this far south from the city centre - itís a considerable walk. The reward in doing this is mainly to view the pub in its heritage glory as itís got a lovely decor from yesteryear inside, one that mainly locals now only enjoy. Thereís not too many houses in this area either, itís mostly business premises in the immediate area.

Very beautiful building, yet out of 7 drafts only stout is worthwhile from my pov.

Visited in 2012. A decent spot to try the Cains beers at source, and you canít get much closr. Built right in to the rather magnificent red brick and terracotta edifice of Cains brewery. Canít imagine there are too many out & out Victorian brewery taps such as this left nowdays. I imagine, with the cessation of brewing, that this place may be no more too (but I havenít been able to confirm that).

We were here roughly 4 years ago. Generally we like the Cainís beers, also the place is decent, older Pub style. When we asked for a Cainís beer shirt and it was not available in the requested size, one of the brewery operators, who was there after his shift, immediately took off his shirt and gave it to me. He even refused any kind of compensation. Great, unparalleled †attitude!!! Was a fantastic experience. Great beer, great shirt, great people!

What a joke, the flagship outlet is in such a state of disrepair. This place needs some TLC. The room looks shoddy and grubby and emits a sour odour which is rather off putting when trying to enjoy a nice drink. The staff are helpful but the environment letís it down. A good clean and some redecoration would work wonders to turn this place around.

Visited in januar 2012 on our pre-winter-ale-pubcrawl.. Lovely, cosy brewery tap, just next to the brewery. A bit old fashion, but in the nice way, and one a the few pubs I visited in Liverpool with more beer posters, than pictures of ships and the Beatles ;-) Friendly staff and well served beers.

The best place to have Cains beers in Liverpool (a surprise). A very cozy place to have some Cains in a bottle or on tap (2010).

Bit of treck to get there,up the hill from brunswick dock.. lovely victorian bar with fittings from pubs that are no.more..As its attached to the brewery the beer is very fresh.,mainly Cains but with guestbeers as very good and reasonably priced. Lovely place to spend an afternoon,worth the trip.

Right on the Brewery gates, this is an impressive pub. The woodwork thoughout is very ornate, a true work of art which should be seen by as many people as possible, so make sure you visit this bar if you are ever in Liverpool. The beer (Real Ale) is of course all Cains, which isnít a bad thing. They do also sell fizzy stuff if you canít handle the proper beer. Fair distance from the centre of the city, or any other place of interest, but as I have already said, a must visit bar, when in Liverpool.

A nicely restored Victorian brewery tap incorporated into the corner of Cainís magnificent ďterracotta palaceĒ. Once known as ďThe GrapesĒ, the Cains Brewery Tap is worth a visit just to see the imposing late nineteenth century brewery building and the inside of the pub, which is all polished wood and stained glass. Appropriately perhaps, itís a monument to Cains beers. Unusually for a Liverpool pub, there is no Beatles memorabilia, no pictures of ships and the posters on the walls mainly advertise their own wares. There are eight hand pumps (offering four Cains beers when we were there), four keg taps and the Cains bottle range neatly ranked behind the bar. Underneath a huge station-type clock there was a blackboard for listing guest beers but it was blank. (Visited 16 January 2012).
