His polite, informative and personable way of talking is something other tourism operators or speaking professionals should actively learn.

The Tour had not even started and the jokes/abuse started rolling. The very nice lady even wished us best of luck. I left my sensitivity at the door but the bullying of a American Tourist during our tour about Trump etc was on called for. The tourist left very upset as the guide pushed and pushed USA issues. I see... More

Did an evening tour and then visited the pub next door.......excellent! Very informative host and a real pleasure to sample the wares at the end of the tour in a lovely bar area. The pub next door does huge food portions to soak up the beer......really pleasant place to spend a few! hours.

A nice tour, with the history of Speight's, and a tour of the facility. The tour guide was fun, the beer at the end of the tour was very tasty!

If they offer to let you "try" the hop pellet... DO NOT DO IT, it will stay with you for hours and is really bitter... will ruin the tasting at the end....!

Great day out with lots of history. Interesting to find out Speights Brewery owns a couple of Australian boutique breweries - Little Creatures & James Bosg. Ample testings of refreshing ales & ciders to finish off. Small group of 8 ☺

Unfortunately we did the tour on Melbourne cup day and the factory was... More

Hi Daniel, Thanks for taking time to provide feedback. Certainly a nice way to spend your honeymoon we think. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and the old part of the Brewery. It has been left in place purely for visitors to see. We hope to see you again one day soon. Cheers Chris Snow Speight's Brewery More
