Albion Brewery Bar54 Kingswell Street
Phipps NBC returned to its roots in a Victorian brewery in the heart of Northampton in 2014, 40 years after Phipps' Bridge Street brewery closed. This brewery tap is situated at the front of the 1884 Ratliffe & Jeffrey's Albion Brewery, a wonderfully restored building where almost all the bar's fittings are reclaimed, with many coming from old closed Phipps pubs. An oak and glass partition between bar and brewhouse allows the brewing process to be viewed during opening hours. Eight handpumps serve six ales from the brewery, including Hoggleys, and a rotating guest, with the final pump reserved for a Northamptonshire cider. The bar also stocks a full range of soft drinks, wines, lagers, bottled beers and spirits including Phipps Kingswell Gin distilled on the premises. Recently awarded Town Pub of the Season Summer 2016.
