“Tour is great”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

The tour is worth seeing if you are just passing through Bury or if you lived here all your life. It was informative but it was not too long. It ended with a tasting of each of their brews. The tasting was not rushed and you could nearly drink as much as you could handle. I was very pleased that they were not tight on the beer they let everyone sample. It was a fun afternoon.

“A great way to spend the afternoon”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

I have done the tour 3/4 times, and my parents even more as they live in the town and take all visitors and family there. The staff are great, the tour is brilliant, but there are quite a few steps. The best part though has to be the Tap Room!

“The Best Brewery Tour”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

This is a little gem in the heart of Bury St Edmunds. This very historic and picturesque brewery provided our group with a wonderful afternoon and some very nice beer too! The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and remarkeably entertaining. This is a far shout from your run of the mill brewery trips so don't miss out.

Fascinating brewery tour, followed by seriously scrumptious food and fits class beer.
