A great bar for the beer enthusiast, there is a huge selection of cool bottled beers and more interestingly and unusually, a lot of international beers on tap too.The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing.Didnít try any of the food but the service was fine and overall the experience was a good one.

Port Street Beer House truly is one of the best craft beer bars in the UK. Itís spread over a couple of floors and unsurprisingly tends to be rather busy. The place is a mecca to those of a craft beer persuasion. They have a wide selection of both keg and cask beer covering UK microbrews (Summer Wine, Marble, Thornbridge etc) and other great world-wide breweries (Mikkeller, Evil Twin, Stone....). The bottle selection is also extensive and the range reminds me a lot of Cask Pub & Kitchen in London (I imagine they have similar suppliers). Particular highlights include an extensive Drie Fonteinen range and large BrewDog back-catalogue. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable in those things beer-related. A must visit!

Even though the pub was very busy and crowded at my visit early on a Saturday evening, I could very well see that this is a kind of heaven for beer drinkers. Apart for a huge list of interesting bottled beers there were about 10 hand-pumped cask ales from local microbreweries in addition to quite a few on taps. I had four cask ales, all of them in excellent condition. They had an American craft beer festival going on at the time of my visit in early July. I would love to come back and spend some more time in this modern characterized place, however it should be better to come here earlier in the daytime for real beer enjoyments (visited, 07.07.2012).

Well itís the future, isnít it. Seriously ballsy beer list at ballsier prices justified solely because they can - wait till craft beers become mainstream in UK bars, hotels and restaurants. The most intelligent beer selection I have come across in the UK to date.

Stopped in with some clients from overseas on the recommendations of a local and was blown away. One of the best beer selection I have ever seen; almost daunting. They had about 10 beers listed from Goose Island (Chicago Il) although most were out of stock. Food was fab and the space was very modern and hip. Canít wait to find an excuse to go back!

A popular modern bar with a great choice of world class beers on tap and in bottle. The Port Street Beer House was extremely busy on the Friday and Saturday evenings when we visited, with standing room only, even in the upstairs room. We went back at opening time on the Sunday and got a table downstairs by one of the two large windows. It was soon very busy again, but the service was efficient. Itís a modern, minimalistic bar, with the walls painted in a matt sage green and some pump clips and beer mats on the beams. There are 15 keg taps, with beer served in pints, halves and thirds. The resident guest casks are from Dark Star, Thornbridge and Magic Rock. When we were there it was Welsh week (iechyd da!) and there was a meet the brewer event with Marble planned for the following week. Iíve noticed that outside London meet the brewer evenings tend to be ticketed. At Port Street the tickets were £8, including five samples and snacks. Not surprisingly, it was sold out. The impressive bottle list had over 50 from the USA, 25 from Belgium, 12 from Germany, ten from Norway (all Nogne O), five from Denmark (all Mikkeller) and ten others including a couple each from Italy, de Molen and Budvar. Amongst the twenty or so bottles from the UK, BrewDog dominated but there were also high quality and interesting more local brews such as Marble, Hardknott, Red Willow and Summer Wine. They also had six ciders. Take away bottles were on offer at six for the price of five or six at full price with a free jute bag thrown in. (Last visited 22 January 20012).

Really blown away by this place. Modern, airy, very smart, well looked after. The number of fonts and pumps must be more than enough to please the most ardent beer enthusiast. Plenty more seating on the 1st floor, outdoor drinking at the rear. Waa quiet when I went in around 5pm Friday, but, within half an hour it was jumping. Service was quick, despite a busy bar. Yeah, some of the prices for the high ABV beers are a bit eye-watering, but you are getting some very high quality stuff.
