As a historic destination this is a must for any beer enthusiast who is coming through the area. However this rating is going to focus more on the tap room which has a more industrial modern feel.
At least three Worthington beers will be on at all times. Since your tour ticket gives you four free samples this is a great way to tick them without buying bottles. I was also able to try ’E’ which is supposed to be based on the original recipes for Bass Ale. Beyond that the selection descends towards Coors standards like Carling.
This isn’t a place that I would come just to drink but it is worth a visit. Also be sure to swing into the shop where you might find the occasional gem. Prices may have been a bit high. However given the rarity of certain bottles it is worth your time to at least browse.

Third visit on 10 Apr 2013: Coors have changed ’The Brewery Tap’ since my other visits, but it’s still a pleasant bar to sit in before and after a wander around the excellent Museum (and bottle shop). Not however the sort of bar you’d use as ’a local’, too many people coming and going because of its location as (a detatched) part of the Museum.
6 Different hand-pulls with 3 ’Shields’ on offer at all times: Red, White and the seasonal, Spring on this visit.
Staff were great and friendly, the food very good and plentiful.

Nice place on historical ground.

Steve Wellington was our host gave us a tour. Aged beers, the Bass No 1, the muesum was great too bad it is closed now. If one was just to do the pub and gift shop I could see SilkTork rating but I had a great time there.

Corporate blandness. 3 casks made in the microbrewery but served by modern chrome pumps to look like keg pumps. Lacks soul, character, the will to live....
Bland as fuck, and then some.

Unfortunately it seems that the Visitor Centre and Mueseum will be closing shortly (see the news story at http://www.coorsvisitorcentre.com/cn_press_release.asp?section_id=37&news_id=64 ).
I’ve been to the museum on several occasions, and it has never failed to enthrall and inform. This time I just had time for a quick glance at the vintage vehicles and shire horses, and a pint in the Brewery Tap.
The bar is very modern looking, but besides the corporate Coors brands there are still a few of the traditionally brewed ales available. Long may they continue.

There’s a little pub, a largeish restaurant, a bottle/tourist shop. It’s all rather neat. Old beers that have not been made for decades may pop up in bottles. Visit the website. When in town don’t miss it.
