  • Very nice tour and generous samples! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the brewery has an interesting history. Definitely recommend checking it out.
  • Not quite as good as star wing brewery in Redgrave but still decent. Star wing brewery will always be the best
  • A most enjoyable and entertaining experience. our guide 'John' was most knowledgeable and friendly. Had a great time in the hospitality bar. A great way to celebrate my 75th. Thank you!
  • If you are at all interested in the craft of beer making then this is definitely worth a visit. A comprehensive, friendly and lively tour with plenty of sights, sounds, smells and tastes along the way. The complimentary beer tasting at the end is a bonus!
  • Our tour guide (Roy) did an amazing job of explaining the complete process of how beer is made. He also provided some history of Bury St. Edmunds and was very entertaining.
