If this is indeed 'PI' I was there a week ago - great ales and bottled beers and the pie, peas and mash was well worth the £7 - recommended.

I keep meaning to call down to Altrincham. I will get there eventually! Apart from this place, is there anywhere else in the area "worth a try?"

Now called Pi.

A pub this is not, a bar very much so, just to make the point. Much like one's living room, this small space is comforting and welcoming.

Beers not cheap, however Altrincham borders on the edge of Cheshire, prices reflect this and Miles and Jacinta need a place to chill. They stock beers from Red Willow and the Marble brewery.

I very much echo the sentiments of the previous post.

A former terraced shop it is a little short on space, with just a small seating area downstairs and a further dining room upstairs. The general décor however, with it's timber flooring, table & chairs give it it's own unique character.

Yes, it is one of Altrincham's more expensive bars, but the beers are from what I would class as "premier micro breweries" and to me they are worth paying that little bit extra for.
Personally, I would like to see more than two "cask" on tap, but in view of the bars small size that's probably impracticable.
In addition to real ale they offer a great selection of European & American beers, these are both on tap and in bottles.

As I so often find in the smaller type bars, the toilets are usually their Achilles
heal. This is not this case here, it was bright & clean.

As for clientèle, it is difficult to gauge, as on my previous two visit's (Sat lunchtimes) it's been the older end to middle age bracket, although at nigh time I would imagine it attracts a more sophisticated crowd as it is quite trendy

Mat the owner/barman was very helpful and his knowledge of beers was excellent.

Overall, this is a great little bar, OK, a little pricey perhaps, but you get what you pay for. It's worth a visit. Recommended.

"incredibly expensive" says the previous post. Whilst some of the rarer drinks may cost a little more than some others, it's very much a case of you get what you pay for. This is the only place in Altincham for many different beers, eg Magic Rock, Summer Wine et al.

It won't be to everyone's taste, as they do not sell mass produced fizz in a jam jar, if that's your thing then there are plenty of other places in Altrincham for you.

The attraction of The Brew House is the range and quality of the beers, the quirky atmosphere and decor and the knowledgable staff.

Like I said, it's not for everyone.

Probably the best selection of British and continental beers for miles around. Superb cask ales from Magic Rock, Summer Wine, Red Willow, Marble, Buxton and others. Wonderful bottled selection including extensive list of specialist Belgian beers (used to be Le Trappiste), owner of the title of Ambassadeur d'Orval, only one in M/cr.
Pieminister pies, table service, knowledgeable staff, a changing guest list, great ambiance, beer garden in the summer and a hosts a beer festival in the Market, next door every August bank holiday weekend.
Why go anywhere else, well done to all concerned, we'll be back soon. One small point, could you not move to the Northern Quarter? We won't have to get the tram home then.

Now known as the Brewhouse (same ownership) as it has expanded it's range beyond just Belgian beers to encompass a great selection of beers from around the globe. Well worth a visit.
