In my life, I’ve always wanted to do this; go to a brewery and see just how the stuff of Gods is produced; I was not disappointed.
There were about 12 of us that took part in, the almost 2 hour long tour, and all seemed to be fascinated by it, both in the smelling of the hops, grains, etc – and in the tasting later!
I thought that it was:
* Interesting; it was very local oriented about their beer and their philosophy in making beer.
* Fascinating and new, when they spoke about malts, particularly the ones that are used to brew the alcohol, and then some that are only used to flavour the beer. I have made beer before, but simply didn’t know that they used this type of technique
* Links –
An interesting site, where many tours can be booked, here.
Another, where Visit England has some that are recommended.
And finally, statistics on Breweries in the UK.
Go out and do some of these, there’s no excuse now!
