  • 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.
