We had a wonderful afternoon visit around a very large Brewery, hosted by wonderful staff and the guides made the visit extremely interesting. Do not miss this attraction if in the area. Warning lots of stairs. But worth the effort. A very good taster sessions afterwards!

Took my Exec Team to see the brewery and learn more about how beer is produced. It was a most informative tour, our guide (Kim - "The Beer Elf") was excellent, very knowledgeable and made the evening very interesting too with a good injection of humour. The view from the top of the brew house across Bury St Edmunds was amazing on a summers evening. We all enjoyed the opportunity to sample the various beers on offer and then stayed to enjoy the "Beer with Food" at the Brewery Tap. All in all a great night out and would heartily recommend it. Thank you!

Susan was our tour guide and made us feel so welcome & at ease. This is such a good thing to do to learn more about bury & history. Visit here & you won't be disappointed. The brewery tap is a great place to sample all the beers!

Really well run tour of the site with a very well informed (ex employee) guide. Good value for money - the tour takes 1hr 40mins plus plenty of 'sampling' at the end. If like me you enjoy real ales, then this certainly is worth doing.
Three things to note -
1) Car parking is very limited and you would be well advised to give yourself good time to arrive for your timed tour.
2) There are plenty of stairs to climb (and they are 'open rung' stairs) so be prepared for a bit of a hike. It would be impossible for someone in a wheelchair or on sticks to attempt this tour (although they could wait in the sampling room!
3) The tour does go onto the roof which is very safe and has high walls around it. However if you are not good with heights it may be best to give that part of the tour a miss - just tell your guide and you could wait while others go up on the roof.

I hope this review is helpful - enjoy
