5 stars I only watched the DVD video of that marvellous, intimate night where Marillion showed their extensive musical abilities not only for magnificient and thunderous prog rock but also displaying their craftmanship to develop persisting melodies and lyrics full of content.

Don't lose this one if you simply love music, where prog or not.

3 stars One of a number of rare acoustic gigs Marillion have performed over the years, A Piss-Up In a Brewery compares well to Unplugged At the Walls or Live From Cadogan Hall. Acoustic Marillion really needs the intimacy of a live setting to shine, and this piss-up certainly delivers, with the band in a relaxed and playful mood. Note that whilst the original Christmas CD release for Marillion's fanclub contains a truncated version of the concert, the Marillion website now offers for purchase a download of the full audio of the concert as featured on the associated DVD, which I think provides a more cohesive experience than the edited highlights on the original CD release. That said, the delivery here is a little bland and muzak-y at points.
