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.

What a cracking selection here. Went 2 weeks ago and off again this week, expensive, but some real rarities here. Lovely chap with knowledge behind the bar. Possibly lacks a little ambiance and is certainly pricey but I would say that for a small venue they pack a substantial punch when looking at the fine choice you have.

A great multi-story bar with a great selections of cask and keg beers, including Duchesse de Bourgogne which was amazing. Also had a Mikkeller on keg. Extensive craft bottle list with heaps I wanted to try. Bottles are a bit on the pricey side but the range is excellent. Highly recommended.

Great little Bar, good selection of Cask ales, normally small Craft beer breweries and some unusual beers. Even better selection of keg beers and a permanent Brewdog Font, have had Punk, 5am Saint, Hardcore and Hello My Name is Ingrid. Can be expensive for the unusual Keg beers in particular, especially the high ABV types, however they serve third pint glasses, should you wish to have a smaller taste. They also do regular Brewery tasting sessions from some of the UKs finest up and coming Craft beer breweries as well as others further afield. I stay in Manchester on business frequently and normally make this place a must!
