Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Our famous brewery tour is the perfect way to explore our beautiful brewhouse, discover our heritage and learn how we brew. Our brewhouse was built in 1938; featuring grand art deco windows, copper mash tuns and Italian marble surfaces. The tour lasts around an hour and a half and is made up of groups of no more than 12. Guests will be committing themselves to climbing over 100 stairs to the roof of our brewhouse for the best view of town. Guests will then return to the Beer Café to taste a selection of our beers. The Beer Café is open 10am-6pm Mon-Sat, with lunches served until 2:30pm. Tours run all week. Mon & Tues 2pm. Weds-Fri 11am & 2pm. Sat 11am, 12:30pm, 2pm & 3:30pm. Sun 11am. We cannot take guests with walking difficulties or who use walking aids. Footwear must be flat and fully enclosed.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Stairs / lift
