The title is not strictly accurate as the Wood Street Beerhouse has actually been open for about a fortnight, but now seems a suitable time to champion its work.
It is housed in the premises that used to be the Hand Drawn Monkey bar on Wood St, Huddersfield (about a five minute walk from the railway station) . The place has been repainted and is in the process of being spruced up to make it a pleasant bar to while away an hour or so.
It has 4 draught beers on the bar, on my visit this included two from Mallinsons, and all were in good condition, along with around 8 key keg lines providing beer from far and wide, and all are reasonably priced.
There now no connection between the bar and the Hand Drawn Monkey brewery, so although their beers may occasionally appear as guests they will not feature permanently on the bar.
