T&J installs drinks dispense at The Queens Road Tap micropub

T&J has provided installation services for a second micropub for Tollgate Brewery, on the Queens Road, Leicester.

The Queens Road Tap is the fourth micropub owned by Tollgate Brewery in the East Midlands – a chain of pubs that has received much praise, both from thirsty locals and prominent organisations, such as CAMRA.

The Queens Road Tap offers a traditional, welcoming and comfortable environment with no TV or music – in a back-to-basics approach, which is designed to encourage conversation.

There are four real ales available – a mixture of those produced by Tollgate and other guest ales – plus four guest craft kegs, two ciders and ten wines, as well as prosecco and gin.

T&J’s work included the installation of six brass through-counter handpulls and four single brushed nickel coloured fonts for beer dispense across keg and cask.

Last year, T&J installed beer dispense equipment in Tollgate Brewery’s first micropub in its local market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch. The Tap at No. 76 in Ashby is a Grade II listed property, meaning that the impact of the installation to the building had to be negligible – T&J’s experience of installing in a wide range of properties made this a simple task. 

Kevin Elliott, Managing Director of Tollgate Brewery, said: "For us, real ale is about beer that has been produced using the best ingredients and techniques that enhance the flavour and experience, rather than extend shelf life. T&J has been completely aligned with our sentiments, and that helped us choose them for The Tap at No 76 and now the Queens Road Tap."

Managing Director of T&J Installations, Ian Jones, said: “We take great pride in helping a company like Tollgate Brewery in creating new micropubs.

“The essence of the micropub isn’t just to serve great beer and guarantee people a good pint – they serve as a social hub for the community. We’ve seen this across a number of micropubs we’ve helped to become a reality – the locals flood in, and they talk to each other.”
