In a newer building designed by local architects sits the Northampton Brewery. Choose the bar to partake a beer brewed on site or select from a slew of others on tap. I found the beer to be quite good, though I've never been one to discriminate. The Brewery also serves food in a well lit/ventilated space with high celients. Oh yeah, the food's good too. It makes good company with the real reason you've come to a brewery: to catch a glimpse of the process of beer production, and consumption.
