I had a jolly time at the St. Austell Brewery. The staff were friendly, helpful and made us feel welcome. We had tour guide Mike, who was quite opinionated and very entertaining. The tour itself was engaging and open - we felt we could ask questions and proffer opinions - and I came away knowing a lot more about the beer I was about to sample!
Sampling was a fun and almost theatrical experience with Mike behind his purpose made bar waxing lyrical about the pros and cons of a stout or an IPA. It also made me very enthusiastic about getting into the proper bar and trying the two half pints worth that came with the ticket price. I polished off a 1913 and a Trelawny and they tasted better with Mike's words spinning around my brain.
Couldn't have asked for more for the price we paid and I would love to return by train and make a full day of it!
