Dolphin Brewery Ltd

Dolphin Inn, 48 St. Michael's Street, Shrewsbury, SY1 2EZ

visited by Wakefield CAMRA, Saturday 27th October 2007

Due to the arrival of a new baby, brewing was suspended in Autumn 2008. You are advised to check on the web for further news.

These and many more pictures can be seen at higher definition on this PicasaWeb Album, (now more easily accessed) along with additional information on the brewery. You may also add your own comments to pictures on the album.

The Dolphin pub is out of the city centre of Shrewsbury, a few minutes' walk past the railway station. The Microbrewery was set up by the previous licensee, but at that time the beers had a variable reputation and eventually the brewhouse was, in effect, mothballed.
No, this is not the queue for the gents, but it is the queue for a pee-p into the brewhouse.
Licensee and brewer Mark "Oz" Osmond, clutching a certificate and Merrie City Festival tankard from Wakefield CAMRA, relates how the brewery came as an unexpected bonus when he bought the pub in 2006.
Mark's wife is the inspiration for the brewery's popular golden session bitter Dizzy Lizzy. Why do they call her Dizzy - can't you tell?
