If you want to know about the biggest industry to London during the 17th & 18th century you need to book a tour with this gentleman. The knowledge he knows about the history of beer is extraordinary. Therefore don't hesitate book an upcoming tour or beer tasting. You will have an amazing experience.

My wife and I were the only ones on the tour that evening and we had our guide all to ourselves. He has a wealth of beer knowledge! He pointed out landmarks, little historical items within each pub, and was patient with all our questions. Would highly recommend, lots of fun if you are a beer lover!

My partner and I went on the guided walk and Fuller's brewery tour on a balmy summer evening.... a gentle stroll by the river included a swift half at the Dove culminating in a tour of the brewery and a chance to sample a variety of Fuller's finest beers. Des De Moor was a super and knowledgable guide ... would definitely recommend this if you want a change of scene and enjoy a beer!

Whilst the focus is on the heritage of brewing in the Southwark and Borough areas there is so much more to this two hour guide round some of London's most pleasant and historical areas. We did the Southwark tour which lasts around two hours with a further stay at the excellent Southwark Brewing near London Bridge. Des is a knowledgeable and engaging guide who skilfully blends information about London's brewing heritage with its links to London' history, development and Bridges. It takes in some well known as well as less well known locations and closely involves both London and Tower Bridges and surrounding area. You will learn about why the area became the centre of London's brewing activity, its growth and decline and how this is linked to the development of London. Great views of the Thames are included and you will see the impressive regeneration of areas once derelict after the decline of London as a port. The event finishes by showcasing the Southwark Brewing facility in Druid st which is a key part of the revival of brewing in the area. We enjoyed a small tour of the brewing process and then sampled several delicious beers including a very interesting chat with the owner who clearly has a passion for his business and cares about those who visit. All in all a very interesting and informative evening with something for everyone regardless of interest in brewing.
