A brand new bar in derby serving a wide variety of both Continental and traditional English Beers.

On Friday 5th July, The Worm Has Turned had its grand opening, offering beers you cannot find anywhere else!

The bar has opened in the former Anglian Home Improvements unit in Queen Street and is on the ground floor making it accessible to everybody. A rounded window across the face of the structure offers striking views of the Cathedral Quarter and allows the bar lots of sun during the day. Owners Paul Riley and Neal Mortimer have a lot planned for the future of the bar and with a vibrant team they are hoping to make it a great success.

  • Lefebvre Blanche de Bruxelles
    Blanche de Bruxelles’ Witbier is a wonderful light refresher with stacks of Wheat (>40%) that gives it a natural distinctive haze. Originally brewed to slake the thirst of farmhands, it’s ideal for summer and should be drunk as cold as possible. An easy drinking beer that offers mellow notes of orange and lemon – £5.40
  • Ayinger Lager Hell
    Ayinger Lager Hell is the typical every day drink in Bavaria. Together with wheat beer this Muenchener Hell style is the most famous beer style in the Bavarian south. As people in Bavaria are very demanding as far as their daily drink is concerned the brewers are very aware of the necessity to brew a yellow-golden beer with a light malt taste. It is crisp, smooth and mellow. A perfectly balanced taste and aroma. – £5
  • La Chouffe
    La Chouffe has a quintessentially Belgian character, with spiced, bready notes, coriander and a touch of lemon. Hazy gold and unfiltered, its light refreshing nature masks a robust 8% ABV. Brasserie d’Achouffe is named after the Chouffe gnomes rumoured to live in the Ardennes mountains. According to legend, the magical gnomes ran their own brewery in the hills for many years until disaster struck and the brewery was destroyed. The story goes that one of these little brewers visited the founders of Brasserie d’Achouffe and gave them the recipe for the beer which would henceforth be known as La Chouffe. You’ve heard of home brew, but have you ever tried gnome brew?! La Chouffe won a Silver Medal at the World Beer Awards 2016 in the category Belgium – Belgian Style Tripel. – £9.50
  • Saison Dupont
    Saison Dupont is an icon for the Saison style of beer. This beer is copper blond and has a thick white foam, a refined bitterness and is a real thirst-quencher. – £7.80
  • Bristol beer factory Milk Stout
    The original Bristol Milk Stout with smooth chocolatey sweetness and balancing coffee bitterness with hints of dark fruits. This award winning national champion stout is a beautifully creamy, full-bodied stout. – £4.80

Bottled Beer

  • Magic Rock Fantasma
    A dank and juicy IPA using Golden Promise, wheat and Cara Munich malts in the mash for a sweetly smooth body. For the hops we judiciously bittered with Magnum in the kettle followed by Citra T90 in both the whirlpool and in dry-hopping. The aroma/flavour is fruit-filled, dank and resinous, with plenty of tropical mango giving a moreish drinkability. Fermented with our house American ale yeast (WLP001) for a refreshingly clean finish, this IPA is also our first gluten-free beer using Brewers Clarex®. – £4
  • Delirium Red
    Cherryred beer with a red head. Taste of sweet sun-riped cherries. This is a strong fruit beer with a firm but soft sweetness. – £5
  • Orval
    In contrast to all the others, the Orval Trappist brewery makes only one beer for the general public. It has an intensely aromatic and dry character. Between the first and second fermentations there is also an additional dry-hopping process. Through this the beer acquires its pronounced hoppy aroma and extra dry taste. – £4
  • Westmalle Dubbel
    An outstanding Trappist beer, the Westmalle Dubbel is rich and complex thanks to its secondary fermentation in the bottle. This dark brown Belgian dubbel has beautiful ruby undertones with a creamy, fragrant head. Aromas of dark fruits, bread, and subtle spices lead the way for flavours of raisins and other dark fruits and a fresh bitter finish that lingers long and dry. – £4
  • Lindermans Caasis
    Perfect for accompanying sweet desserts or for enjoying on a warm afternoon, Lindemans Cassis is a richly fruity Lambic beer from Belgium. With its big, bold, juicy notes of blackcurrant, this is most definitely a great tipple for the summer months… – £3.40
  • Bourgogne Des Flandres
    Bourgogne des Flandres occupies a very special place in the Belgian beer landscape. It is a typical example of the Flemish beer blending tradition with old and young beer being mixed judiciously to achieve a perfect balance. Bourgogne des Flandres Pure is brewed on site in the loft and blended with lambic from Timmermans Brewery. This lambic has aged for over eight months in wooden barrels. The result is a surprising red-brown beer with a low alcohol content and a very rich finish. – £4.80
  • Tynt Meadow
    Tynt Meadow is the UK’s only Trappist Ale. A strong ale brewed by the monks of Mount Saint Bernard Abbey, Charnwood Forest. Tynt Meadow is 7.4% strong dark ale with deep aromas and flavours of dark chocolate, liquorice and fruit. – £4.40
  • Rochefort 8
    The lower gravity cousin to Rochefort 10. Nicknamed “Spéciale” (’The Special’), this beer is the most recent production. The Rochefort 8 has a more tawny colour and a more pronounced aroma, with an even richer fruitiness (a slight undertone of fig?) and a little more spiced dryness, like that of a cake, which gives a balanced finish to the final notes. – £6
  • St Feuillien Grand Cru
    Strong but elegant with a fruity touch. This beer with a golden colour and a big white head has a full body. The taste is soft sweet, alcoholic with a light bitterness. This is a very tasteful and complex beer. – £6.50
  • Silly Saison Silly
    Saison style top fermentation old brown beer. Its taste is remarkable, light and favourably combined to offer a tone that is both modestly sweetened and fruity, leaving the mouth with a refreshing feel as is constantly asked of it. – £4
  • Silly Scotch Silly
    Scotch Ale with a smooth, really velvety taste and a hoppy bitterness. It is brewed with pure malt, English hops and some sugars. – £5.50
  • Dupont Monk’s Stout
    Top fermented beer with re-fermentation in the bottle. This dark beer is characterised by a dry and bitter taste. The use of roasted malts lends a well-pronounced taste of coffee and chocolate. The hop flavours and fermentation aromas add some complexity to this Stout. – £4
  • Erdinger Alkoholfrei
    A cool glass of ERDINGER Non-Alcoholic not only tastes fantastic, but is also healthy – thanks to the vitamin B9 that supports a strong metabolism. With its isotonic properties , it provides the body directly with valuable ingredients and thus satisfies thirst even faster. The Non-Alcoholic drink from Erding is not only a real energizer but also low in calories, with 82 calories in each 11.2 fl oz bottle, and made exclusively from natural ingredients. A varied and balanced diet as well as a healthy lifestyle are important. ERDINGER Non-Alcoholic supports this while also tasting fantastically full-bodied and refreshing! – £2.60
  • Flensberger Gold
    Flensberger Gold is a fantastic example of the Dortmunder Export style. This style is known for its refreshing simplicity where the malts are prominent yet is still finishes very clean. Rich aromas of malts, barley, grain, and maybe even some cut grass are mirrored on the palate with perhaps a bit of biscuity notes. This lager has a medium-body that is deceptively richer than it looks whilst its moderate dryness gives the Flensburger Gold a crisp and refreshing finish. – £4.50
  • Flensberger Pils
    Flensburger Pilsner is a brilliant yellow in colour with a white head. The pleasing aroma of this lager is that of grain and malts. The flavour is mildly bitter with a crisp hoppy taste on the palate. This easy drinking beer also has caramel notes with hints of lemongrass. Light citrus is apparent, with a long dry finish. A full bodied pilsner guaranteed to satisfy. – £4
  • Stone (Berlin) White Ghost Berliner Weisse
    Our citrusy and refreshing Berliner Weisse is a modern take on a true Berlin classic. Brewed using the same traditional lactic acid cultures as the Berlin brewers of the 1920’s, our Berliner Weisse is a bright and sparkling thirst-quencher. The beer embodies the liveliness of summer with the fruity tang of lemon and melon and the tartness of rhubarb and gooseberries. – £4
  • Schlosser Alt
    Literally translated to “old castles,” Schlôsser Alt is the quintessential Düsseldorf Altbier. A well-balanced, bitter yet malty German ale this beer is clean and smooth with nutty flavours and a rather dry finish. – £4
  • Magic Rock Highwire
    High Wire is our tribute to the Pale Ales of the West Coast of America, beers unapologetically hop forward in character. Let your taste buds walk this test of balance. Mango, Lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish. Are you ready for our tightrope of taste…? – £4.20
  • Beavertown Gamma Ray
    The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of American hops are added to the whirlpool giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away! – £4
  • Tiny Rebel Club Tropicana
    This grown up fruit salad is as colourful as the most hideous Hawaiian shirt you’ve ever seen. It’s super juicy and crammed full of fruity hop flavours that will have your mouth watering. Imagine sitting by the pool in the blazing sun with a cocktail in one hand, but instead of a dainty little glass it’s served by the pint! Packed full of American hops, amplified by Peach, Passionfruit, Pineapple and Mango flavours! – £3.50
  • Wild Beer Millionaire
    Taking inspiration from a sweet dessert this is our salted caramel chocolate milk stout. Decadent in the extreme it is as desert like as the eponymous chocolate caramel shortbread. – £5
