Brewery Tours

Tour the Old Dairy/Cattle Shed Brewery

We run tours on Thursdays at 2.30 pm, and Saturdays at 10.30 am & 12.30 pm (booking required).

The brewery is operational Mon-Fri, so the Saturday tours will not see any active brewing, but the full tour is still available. Over the course of about 1.5 hours our knowledgeable staff will provide…

  • A full tour of the brewery, including the brewing and fermentation vessels
  • Details of the brewing process, from raw ingredients through to our award-winning beers
  • Answers to all the questions you may have about the brewery and brewing process
  • Samples of some of our wonderful beers during and after the tour
  • An opportunity to purchase our beer and other products in our well-stocked brewery shop

Please turn up at the Brewery Shop 5 minutes before the start of your tour. Sensible footwear is recommended.

Cost: £10.00 per person.
