You can chat to the people behind the beer, ask any questions, or simply soak up the atmosphere of the brewer’s art. You’ll also be invited to have a pint and enjoy the authentic taste of British beer at its best in the brewery tap, warmed by the inevitable real fire. Open all year round to members of the public. Guided tours are also available.
