A very informative tour - lots more info about the process and ingredients than many of the other beer tours we’ve attended. Nice fun way to spend a few hours in the afternoon.

Took an early evening tour of the brewery. Found the whole experience fun and interesting. Our enthusiastic guide Jess showed us the history and process of brewing the ales. Tasted some of the many ales on show. Would definately recommend this to others.
