The Brewery Tap was Derby Brewing Company's first pub. It is a unique Victorian curved building dating back to 1862 and sits on the banks of the river Derwent. After being shut for 2 years it was saved from the clutches of the bulldozers and it then went on the win Derby Camra pub of The Year. The Brewery Tap combines high Victorian ceilings and imposing windows with exposed brickwork and original wooden floors to create a great pub. There is also a purpose build smoking barn, courtyard and roof terrace overlooking the river, perfect for those fleeting summer months. We pride ourselves in offering 10 real ales on hand pull, showcasing 5 of our own ales and 5 guest ales. Not to mention a fantastic selection of lagers, wines, spirits and ciders and world beers, there is something for everyone including our legendary racks. We also serve a great selection of homemade locally sourced food, all prepared and cooked on site. From the old favourites to something a bit different we’re sure you’ll find something to take your fancy on the menu. Please note this page is monitored Mon-Fri 9am-5pm.
