About
Docks Beers is a craft beer brewery, taproom and beer shop in an old Church near Grimsby's famous Docks. Our brewing is inspired by our location and the hard work ethic of dockers past and present. We brew our beers on an exhibition brewery which is in full view of the taproom. Visitors can watch the brewers hard at work while they sup a pint chosen from a number of Docks Beers on tap, or a selection of real ales on handpull brewed by our sister brewery Axholme Brewing Co. We also stock a range other brewery's beers, wines, gins, cider and soft drinks. We have snacks - crisps, nuts, cured meats and pickled eggs. If you fancy something more substantial we have a wood fired sour dough pizza menu from Tredici who will deliver pizza to the taproom. Brewery tours and beer tastings are available on the first Saturday of every month. There are four tours 10:30, 12:00, 13:30 and 15:00. Tours must book in advance via our website. Our off-licensed shop sells beers and merchandise to take away.

Me and my friends were lucky enough to see Stereo MCs for the first time st the Acsdemy..What a great night !!! Greeted by friendly staff who were very efficient, enjoyed scrumpy loaded fries from the food hut and then entered The Academy for the first time.WOW, the atmosphere was incredible. The DJ already had the crowd well warmed up then Stereo Mcs had everyone bouncing until the end.They were full of energy.We didn't want the night to end.Well done Docks Team. Xx

All of it from arrival to finish! First time ever at the venue and I went on my own as a female and thoroughly enjoyed bumping into a lot of old friends and chatting with randoms in the smoking area! Although I didn’t get chance to eat from the street food this time I’d recommend going hungry and giving them a try, I will be doing next time! Loved the place. Thank you for hosting the Stereo MCs, just awesome!!!

Thanks for finding the time to give us feedback. We always welcome constructive criticism from our customers. We are sorry to have disappointed you by not accepting cash. We have taken the decision to remain cashless based on several factors. Primarily it is to do with staff safety - handling cash has been identified as an ongoing risk with the virus and it puts those members of staff who are responsible for banking at additional physical risk when carrying large amounts of money. But in addition, it has cut down queues in busy periods (and Docks can get very busy) and saves more time because the customer pays with the exact amount. It has minimised the risk of on-premises theft by intruders. We were broken into last year. The thief stole two tills but got away with nothing because we are cashless. It has cut down on revenue losses - mainly because it has decreased the number of human errors made when processing a cash transaction. For example, giving out the wrong change is a frequent mistake that happens during busy periods in retail, as a result cash rarely balanced. Now we are error free and more staff time has been saved. They no longer need to spend hours reconciling and counting cash at the end of the day. We are one of countless businesses struggling after 2 years of a pandemic. We have been confronted with the serious financial implications of nationwide lockdowns and operational restrictions. No amount of government support can make up for the losses we have suffered and, as a result, we have incurred substantial debts we would otherwise avoided just to stay afloat. We are doing everything we can to get back to normal. And we are doing our best. I am sorry that our decision to remain cashless has alienated you but, perhaps in the context of all the above, you can see that we need the benefits it brings to help us get back on an even keel.

Excellent staff. Warm friendly welcome. They really looked after us and the dog. Thank you for the water bowl. The beer is really really good. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

Like it is mentioned before, it a great place, for a great beer, served by friendly staff.

I was here with a colleague, on a quiet sunday afternoon, and it was time for a drink, we found this place, not much fuzz but we had four good pints of lager. The staff was indeed very friendly and quick. A real recommendation for a couple of beers.
