My girlfriend and I had prebooked this brewery tour and were surprised at how brilliant it was. We had a young lady as a tour guide who had an infectious passion for the brewery, leading us through each section of this microbrewery, explaining in detail all the processes, ingredients and systems used. Although she worked on the front desk, her knowledge of the brewing system, and the processes used was akin to that of a master brewer.
Once the tour had finished there was a tasting session upstairs, which probably stopped when the last person left! The tasting session is really good as you are encouraged (by the way the bar is set out...) to talk to your neighbours and it does genuinely look and feel like a pub.
All in all, the tasting session alone is worth the money, the gift shop is very well stocked (not just by skinner's) and the tour is remarkably well thought out. It is a good way to spend time in Truro.
