As previously reviewed, this is not a brewery tour as such, but a really interesting insight into the brewing techniques and the beers they produce. Very insightful and a far cry from how the big brewers would do things - highly rated!!

This is a great thing to do on the island whether you like beer or not. Informative talk about the brewing process and the history of beer. BTW, some of the nicest beer I have tasted anywhere in the world.

The tour is short but very informative. Beer making island style! After the tour you can taste the results of some very passionate brewing. Definitely worth the time to visit.

An informal and informative 'tour' of this mini brewery. Owner/operator gave the tasting and tour. Absolutely brilliant, thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

The song about a pub with no beer is sad enough but a brewery with no beer, is a real bugger. Apparently they had an accident!
