Skinners is probably the best brewery in Cornwall.The brewery visit is excellent and the chance to sample afterwards great.if you are short of time the old Ale house in Truro has the full range of Skinners regular and seasonal beers.

Hi, well-behaved dogs are allowed in the visitors centre area but not into the actually brewery. Someone would have to be with the dog at all times as they cannot be left unattended. Hope that helps!
