    "Rebellion beer is my favourite brewery. I love the regular beers and many of the monthly specials. The brewery shop is one of my favourite places and members nights are an experience not to be missed."
    "Visited the newly opened Tap Yard and was very impressed with everything from the way they’ve transformed the old containers into this fabulous bar, to the wide range of beers and other drinks available to enjoy within a great atmosphere."
    "Fantastic place for a beer lover. Great selection of tasty, fresh ales in the shop and Tap Yard. Warm, friendly atmosphere and very kind and helpful staff."
    "Had their beers before and liked them. Even better here at the Tap Yard because they've only travelled short distance across the premises. Staff friendly and very helpful. None of the "I only work here" vibe you can get in some places. Staff seemed only too willing to help. Brilliant!"
    "Visited the newly opened tap room the other Saturday and was very impressed with everything including the wide range of beers and other drinks available to enjoy with a great atmosphere."
