Many thanks to Maureen for a fun and educational tour of the brewery, even if it was a bit chilly up on the roof!

We only had time for a brief visit to the shop and the display area. Folk in the shop were very friendly and helpful - very welcoming. We didn't manage to do a full brewery tour this time, but will definitely aim to do that on a future visit, since clearly this comes highly recommended by others in the Trip... More

The tour takes you in and around the Greene King Brewery. There are lots of things to look at and see, as it is a working brewery. The guide was very knowledgeable and was good at answering any questions asked. The tour finishes in the pub, it could do with being a bit shorter so you get there quicker! Once... More

A great tour, very informative and a good way to spend an afternoon. Rob, our guide was very friendly and a source of information. The tour is around a working brewery, although it doesn't work at weekends. You are taken around the brewery from top (where you get great views of Bury St Edmunds) to bottom. You are encouraged to... More

A must for anyone who likes ale or who is just interested in the process involved. The tasting session at the end is a great way to sample and ask questions. For me the highlight is starting on the roof with superb 360 views of Bury St Edmunds. Take a camera!

We had a great time at the weekend. The trip is around a working brewery (non working at weekends) Interesting information followed by a great beer tasting experience. Any beer you liked to try. Maureen made the day, warm friendly, knowledgable. Ask for her by name.

My son and I visited today, and it was excellent. The tour was informative and we both really enjoyed finding out more about the brewing process. We ended up in the Brewery Tap, where we sampled some fine beers and tried some that I have not had before. I would highly recommend this tour.
