About the Pub

The Brewery Tap is part of the National Brewery Centre but has a separate entrance from the main museum (which opens at 10am). It showcases beers from the associated William Worthington's Brewery, but which are marketed under the name of the Heritage Brewing Company.


The comfortable L-shaped single-room bar and the adjacent restaurant (with its mezzanine floor) are bright and airy, and furnished in a modern style, despite being packed with brewery memorabilia. The 'cellar' can be viewed through a window in the bar. Food is served in the both the bar and the restaurant.

An L-shaped conservatory overlooks the garden and an enclosed children's play area. Outdoor drinking on a part-covered patio and in the garden.

Various events are organised throughout the year, such as a monthly Comedy Club, music nights and an OktoberFest - details on website.

Historic Interest

The buildings once housed the Bass Brewery engineering, craft and maintenance workshops. As the Bass Museum, the premises opened in July 1977, but they became the Coors Visitor Centre and Museum of Brewing in 2003, following the Molson Coors purchase of the site (including the whole brewery complex). The Coors Visitor Centre closed in June 2008 for supposed financial reasons, but a persistent campaign led to its re-opening as the National Brewery Centre in May 2010 under the current management. The site includes the preserved White Shield Brewery (“England’s oldest micro-brewery”) and the new (opened 2011) 25-barrel William Worthington’s Brewery.
