Went on the guided brewery tour which was very informative and a very good insight into the brewery business but even more how this brewery is the centre of the towns economy. Nice to hear how a brewery is changing to the economic demands with micro brewery and other sidelines. The beer tasting afterwards is an excellent addition and to... More

Very relaxed and informative tour of the brewery and the beer making process. The "health and safety police" have spoiled it a bit preventing you from seeing some of the more interesting areas but Robb (Maureen!) is a great host and not shy with serving the beers at the end in the bar! Be aware, there are lots of steps... More

An excellent and informative tour. Our guide had a fund of stories and information which significantly added to the visit. I would recommend the tour to anyone interested in local history, brewing or just looking for an interesting couple of hours.

For a first time visit to a brewery I was delighted with the GK tour. Our tour guide was fantastic and was able to combine humour, knowledge of brewing and local history all in one experience. The sampling at the brewery tap at the end of the tour was very generous and we were able to taste a wide range... More

Fantastic event. We were blessed with Roy as our guide. This guy gave a brilliant tour, heaped in facts, figures and historical knowledge that kept us fully entertained. A well balanced level of humour that had the whole group (10 of us) hanging on every word. I personally could have spent hours listening to Roy. The brewery itself is fantastic... More

I was bought this brewery trip as a gift, and what a great present it was. My first brewery trip. Firstly on arrival, the buildings itself are old and impressive set amid the historic town. The guide was friendly, informative witty & interesting. The tour took just over 2 hours and ending up with a refreshing tasty and rewarding tasting... More
