Brilliant sampling of the Breweries lager, IPA, stout, cider, gin and vodka. Sarah the host is very knowledgable and very generous with the samples. A very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.

Checked website and emailed before visiting, whilst staying in Bourton-on-the-Water. Called in during a walk from Bourton-on-the-Water to Lower Slaughter, as my husband had tasted this beer at the Hotel we were staying in, he wanted to buy some to take home. Unfortunately as we called between Christmas and New Year they were closed for Tours. But we were able... More

Fantastic brewery and great to see how their great products are made. Sarah was a very friendly and knowledgable host. Numerous different samples were offered and the sample sizes were very generous. We also got a free bottle of the drink we liked the best along with the branded glass we were using for the tasting. I received this as... More

This was a brilliant micro-brewery tour and beer tasting afternoon. There were a great selection of different lagers, an IPA and stout as well as cider, gin and vodka to drink. We were able to walk to the brewery from Bourton village in about 15 minutes. You get shown all the different brewing equipment which was really interesting. Our host... More

Lovely welcome and lots of generous tasting. Very friendly guide and you get to know the rest of the group really well. Takes about 2 hours to have the tour, chat and taste beer, cider, gin and vodka. Took my husband for his birthday and it was one of the highlights of the trip. Next time though I'll take a... More

The modern exterior is not what comes to mind of a brewery. The tasting room allays those fears. The warmth and friendliest of both our hosts was a joy to be on the receiving end. Sarah's knowledge and ability to answer all and every question without a second thought was excellent. If all lagers were like theirs, I might swap... More

I was with a group of 4 Old Boys on a weekend school reunion tour, staying nearby. This visit turned out to be the highlight of the weekend. We were 4 arriving at the micro brewery for 2pm on Saturday 15th October 2016 and joined by a very pleasant young American couple from Florida. They really knew their lager, having... More

Very pleasant guide. Rather a small operation so not too much to see. Very generous with the sampling of bother beer and gin! The choice of glass to take home is good.

We had a 'first time' holiday in the Cotswolds and stayed in Bourton and decided to book a brewery tour which we did on the afternoon of Thursday 15th September, and what a fantastic afternoon it was too. There were only two of us on the tour which made it even nicer. After introductions with our guide, Sarah, and some... More
