a birthday present tour on the day before Le Grand Depart of the TDF. The brewery is located just inside the city walls so you can combine this visit with a walk on the walls before or after quite easily. The river and railway station are close by. Our tour started at 5.30pm from the bar. Our tour guide was highly entertaining and knowledgeable. This is a small brewery so the tour did not take very long but included a process description, malt and hops tasting and then a look around/down into the mashing and fermentation processes before returning to the bar. You each get 4 tokens exchangeable for 1/3rd pint glasses of your ales of your choice. The shop sells bottled beer, glasses, tee shirts, hoodies etc as normal.
All in all an enjoyable visit and much better than some we have had at bigger breweries. If you are carrying heavy bags around they can be stored behind the bar. Car parking is easy on the street outside with payment at a meter.
Good atmosphere in the bar afterwards. Directly behind the brewery and on their premises is Brigantes Bar & Brasserie serving decent food and a very large selection of ales from all over the world.
