  • A very interesting tour of the brewery. Our guide Maureen was a fount of all knowledge.
  • 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!
