Essay question: Why should I drink here?
Hourglass Brewing is simultaneously a shrine to geek culture and to craft brewing; their beer hall is decked with local artists’ nerdy work – paintings, prints and general odes to the titans of sci-fi and fantasy – and serves a rotating list of 20 house suds. Come for the local ales, stay for the drunken debates whether Batman v Superman has any redeeming qualities..
