This place was empty when I went in, just a few picnic tables and barely any service. Maybe they get busier on the weekend. Otherwise the beer selection was very small, it's all a toss up based on what is being brewed at the moment. There are better stops in Bermondsey within a few minutes walk. This is also a little hard to find, buried at the back of an industrial estate.
Visited on Friday afternoon. Unfortunately there were no Ubrew beers, though guest beers were quite nice. The place was almost empty and bartender was busy with brewing tasks. Looks like a relatively small brewery with some home brewing classes and client brewing options. Nice place to visit.
UBrew is the first place you come across when walking west from Bermo tube station. In a railway arch, obviously. Everything is in a railway arch around here! They offer hobby brewers the chance to brew beers in a ‘brewery’ environment, supplying the kit and ingredients. The bar sells their own beers, plus guest beers plus some of the hobby brewers output (give them a chance, some of it is excellent).
Visited a few times in the past. Another place worth visiting when doing the Bermondsey Mile. Having lots of seats both inside and outside. OK selection of beers, served in fine condition. Friendly staff.
Visited on 26th August. Tucked away in an arch on the "wrong side of the tracks" this is a bit of a of strange place. Arrived and a tasting/brewing event in full swing and bottle labelling in full swing. Had to ask if open, it was. The 2 beers I wanted to try weren’t on so I opted for a couple more which were decent enough and new. The beer range is quite different and have some interesting stuff on. Bottles in the fridge of latest UBREW products are available but at £3.50 are a little pricey compared to £3 at BBNo for example. Decent enough. As it is open a lot more often I’d be tempted to visit but would be lower priority than other venues locally.
A bit rare Place on the mile. If you do not know about it, you will not find it. Although it is a to min walk from BBN or Bottle shop in Druid street. Good seating and good beer selection. Also a restaurant next door. A Place you can stay for a while. I did not know that we could brew beer here. Will try to have some more time to stay here at next visit. Wife eating, me brewing....yes.
This is, at the same time, the most normal and the most unusual place on the Mile. The bar area is pretty nice, with cool music (as opposed to the British Invasion soundtrack at the other places), extensive seating inside and out, and close to a ramen shop. The weird part is that you can brew your own beer here, great concept!

Visited in April. Industrial place. There were some hobby brewers busy brewing. Good selection, friendly people. Worth visiting.
