Squeezed in a Tour and Tasting the day before Lockdown 2. Excellent guide in Cathy who kept a good balance between facts and anecdotes. Superb beer tasting - and she was right, there is a beer for everyone. Came away with lots of goodies from the shop to see us through the next few weeks.

Visited the Greene King brewery for a guided tour today (29 October) and was not disappointed! Our tour guide, Steve, was extremely knowledgable and the first part of the tour (of the grounds and brewery itself) was really interesting. The second part of the tour involved a tasting session (with lots of generous samples and snacks!) which was great fun. Steve and his colleague were so accommodating and a real pleasure as company for the afternoon. The whole experience was topped off by a complimentary glass and bottle of beer to take home! Could not recommend a tour of the brewery highly enough as a brilliant way to spend an afternoon when visiting Bury!

Amazing amazing brewery tour today led by Steve. He is so knowledgeable and great fun to have a beer with (Greene King IPA is his fave)! We felt welcomed and valued and just loved every minute. Generous beer samples, snacks and a wealth of information about beer in Bury St Edmonds, the UK and worldwide. It was an absolute delight to get to know Steve and the lovely lady who was shadowing him (apologies that we've not remembered how to spell her name beginning with M)! Thank you for a fantastic first day of a much needed break away. Highly recommend and ask for Steve. Xxx

We enjoyed a fascinating tour and history of the Greene King Brewery. COVID restrictions prevented us from enter the factory areas itself but they adapted their tour well but bring warm clothes as some of it is outside . Cathy was our tour guide and was entertaining and informative lending us a few stories over her 40yrs working for Greene King . Definitely top marks to her . The tasting session was done at the end and I have to say I loved it . We tasted nine different ales and learnt about malty ones vs hoppy ones . Also had a few beer related snacks too . Abbot Ale still my favourite though but Old Speckled Hen very good too (and an interesting story to go with that ale )
