Excellent guided tour. Lasted approximately an hour with samples of all their fine beers afterwards. Price is £5.00 but you get a PM pint glass for free at the end. Dark Side Of The Moose is a world-class brew.

From the start you could tell just how passionate they are about the product, the attention to detail in the brewing process ensures that the beer is fantastic, no wonder they are winning awards. The tour takes under an... More

I had seen previous Trip reviewers comments and while touring around North Wales, stopped in Porthmadog for 2 hours and not disappointed. Small shop in Madoc street but a lovely friendly welcome and discussion about the brewery and its beers. Sampled 5 of the 6 beers. If you like dark beers then either Dark side of the moose or there... More

No idea what the brewery visit is like, but by the time the beer has made the journey of nearly a quarter of a mile to Spooners on Portmadoc Staion it is very good indeed!
