A group of 12 of us toured the brewery. A half-pint of Razor Back (formerly Best Bitter) started the tour, with a witty explanation of the history and general layout of the Brewery. Then upstairs to see the malts, the tun room, and downstairs to look round the chilling and barrelling rooms. The attention to detail in the brewing process... More

Quite interesting and it has inspired me to buy a book on how on earth we came to making beer in the first place ..... jolly, chatty chap took us round - actually it would be even more interesting to visit on a day when beer was actually being brewed but I daresay that the dreaded Health & Safety might...

My dad and myself were giving tour tickets as a present for Christmas. I am so glad we were. I am a real ale lover, so I was really looking forward to the afternoon. We had a great guide in Steve, who really made the tour interesting. We were given a free half pint glass, which we were allowed to... More

I initially booked this tour online (£17 for 2 adults) and was unsure of what to expect. Including myself and my partner there were 24 of us who went round the Brewery with our tour guide. It certainly opened my eyes to how beer is processed and all the attention and effort that goes into making it. At the end... More

Bought this is a birthday present for my boyfriend. Neither of us are huge ale drinkers but we both really enjoyed the tour, very informative. Friendly staff and was great to get to try everything!

This was the first time ever that I've been to a brewery tour. It was very interesting and Hayden the tour guide was brilliant. He knew how to keep you interested. The beer tasting was something to look forward to. And you were even allowed to go behind the bar and serve. Definitely worth a trip or maybe more. The... More

I bought the tour for my husband as a birthday present. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the brewery. Firstly sit down with a glass of Razorback and hear all about the history of the brewery. Then have a guided tour around shown how the ales are made. Then back for as many beers you can get in before time... More

Went on a tour of Ringwood Brewery with a group of friends. The tour was excellent with a very knowledgeable guide, going through the whole brewing process and history of the brewery. We were able to taste the full range of ales and beers. Thoroughly recommended!
