One of Beeston’s best independent businesses has recently moved and grown. Totally Tapped, the micro ‘tap house’ of local brewery Totally Brewed, has relocated over the road and along a bit from its former home on the High Road, into what used to be the Skills travel shop.

Sadly Totally Brewed has ceased to be, but Totally Tapped is still offering a wide range of high quality local beers – from the darkest stouts to the palest IPAs. All the cask ales come from Nottingham breweries such as Bang The Elephant, Lenton Lane, Neon Raptor, Liquid Light and Grasshopper.

The new pub is a fair bit bigger, especially with the opening of a new sun-trap beer garden at the back of the building. The atmosphere is very welcoming and cosy, appealing to people of all backgrounds and ages. Dog-friendly too. Don’t tell anyone else, but the beer is incredibly reasonably priced!

At a time when pubs all over the country continue to struggle, it is refreshing to see Beeston continuing to buck the trend. Get out there and support your locals, and they will be there for future generations to enjoy.
