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.
Visited in October with a friend during our monthly Bermondsey Beer Mile. Quiet unusual beer place in Bermondsey. This bar/brewery is for people who want to brew and they don’t have place or equipment. Beer selection is unusual also for the area with some nice beer from US. Good selection and friendly service. This place is more peaceful and more huge compare the other beer places on the area. The concept to let people brew their own beer is nice.
Some unusual beers, lots of home brewing in the room next door. Good service, plenty of space. Although we did walk in to the restaurant next door first....

We visited Ubrew on Saturday 12th December 2015. We were en route to Eebria but decided to stick our heads in the door on the way. There was a lot of construction work going on nearby and a huge lorry/crane had somehow shoehorned it’s way diagonally into the small space in front of Ubrew. When you got past this there were a couple of chaps working on the metal front doors with sparks flying everywhere, despite the slightly chaotic looking scene a large chap came bouncing out of the door and shook my hands and surveying the scene around him confidently stated that they would be open at 12:00 we vowed to return in a short while.
We headed back to Ubrew a little later than 12:00 having had a half in Partizan Eebria and BBN. Ubrew is situated on a small trading estate under the arches just off of Old Jamaica Road, it is actually very close to BBN and the Bottle Shop and a brisk 15 min walk will get you to Partizan and Eebria. It was busy, surprisingly so on our arrival, we hadn’t realised that there was an event on here today until we bumped into Leighton.
Being underneath the arches the layout is familiar, tables and chairs on both run right back to the rear of the building with a bar at the rear on the LH side and toilets just near here. I am uncertain of the amount of taps on offer but Leighton suggested there had been an increase, there was a fridge near the bar with a selection of beers brewed onsite along with others from further afield, I saw a couple of Spanish beers and a Vibrant Forest Imperial Stout which I purchased.
Music played and seats were at a premium but the atmosphere was really pleasant, we both liked it here, we had a BIPA, brewed onsite I believe, it was good so we shared another. It’s a good bar and a worthy addition to the beer scene around here.
