We received a warm welcome, and an excellent tour guide who is clearly passionate about the traditions of the brewery, it was a real pleasure to tour round with a great guide and we enjoyed a very tastey meal washed down with a pint or two of an excellent brew

Really interesting tour, followed by a free pint (or 3 x 1/3 pint to sample more of the beers on offer). Would recommend as brewing is such an important part of the life of Masham.
