Tour Safety

Please note that we are a working Brewery and the tour takes you right into the heart of the brewhouse. There may be some water on the floor and our Brewery team will be working around you. The viewing platforms are reached by stairs and are quite high. Unfortunately there is limited disabled access on the tour. High heels, sandals or flip flops should not be worn. Children are welcome on the tour as long as they are accompanied by a well behaved adult who will look after them throughout.
