Great to see Michelle still at the top of her game here in the malt house. Lots of new and interesting craft ales on offer and Michell's knowledge of them as comprehensive as ever.
During our visit we were lucky enough to meet the famous Simon of "Simon Says", the wonderfully informative midlands based beer blog, and he was just as engaging and interesting in the flesh as his blog portrays him to be. He even got involved in helping Michelle try to solve her glass washer problem.
Keep doing what you're doing Malt House, because it's definitely working, and walking in for only the second time in 13 months felt like coming home.

We were drawn into this fine establishment by chance when we spotted a blackboard outside with Stowford Press badging and we cannily thought any pub that sells Stowford has got to know it's beers. What we found inside was an overwhelmingly fabulous experience, not just of the craft ale variety, but just as a great pub. Our hostess and manageress, Michelle, was so attentive and welcoming that we thought we had known her all our lives. An articulate and eloquent chatter, she really brightens up what is a warm, clean and friendly pub.
The Stowford was indeed on sale on draft and was delicious. There were 3 or 4 other Irish craft ales on tap and Michelle had a great knowledge of what each one brought in terms of flavour and preference and her recommendations on what may suit each of us in company were spot on. I can personally recommend the Offaly brewed "Bo Bristle" as a crisp and intensely fruit strong IPA.
This is a great pub and we were surprised to learn it has only recently reopened with Michelle at the helm. It feels like she has ran it for years. I would like to wish her and guys all the very best with The Malt House. It came as no surprise though to learn that the Athlone craft ale society meet here for monthly tastings. That says it all. If you like good beer and banter drop by this wonderful Athlone hostelry. You won't be disappointed. I've no hesitation in giving it a top rating.

Called in here on a recent night out in Athlone.
Probably the most welcome place of all the bars in town. Its across from the Prince of Wales Hotel.
Really nice craft beer too which I think was called McGrath's pale ale - but the barstaff know their stuff so they won't put you wrong. Well worth a visit.

Would call in for a few pints but would move on, definitely a step up from the previous tenant, has a few different owners over the years but for a great location in the centre of town it didn't do well as it should but the malt house might succeed where others faild :)

Heard that the Athlone Beer Club meet there a couple of times per year to test their extensive Craft Beer selection. Enjoyed the chat.

I was with ggeiss (previous review) and will just reiterate what he said. This bar streamed the American football game for us, ordered and picked up a pizza for us, let the dog come in, had free wife, and of course had all sorts of tasty pints.
The only downside was the local who kept telling me what a sissy game American football is with all those pads and stuff :)
