  • Good tour with an excellent guide who made it a very interactive discussion rather than set pitch. Old brewery is great but best bit was sampling tasters of the beer at the end with tips on beer tasting. Confident that Mr Greene and Mr King would be pleased with the current state of the business.
  • Excellent brewery tour by knowledgeable guides who are very enthusiastic about their subject matter. The brews are outstanding too!!
