“One of the finest breweries of quality beer in the world”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Dark Star simply do not know how to make a bad beer. Every one of their brews is disctinctive and of superb quality. Not, of course, a beer for those palate-challenged drinkers who believe that Fosters or Carling are fine examples of the brewers' art - but an irresistible brew for those who appreciate fine beer.

In fact, the brewery (and the picture here is not it) is not really a tourist attraction - it's a brewery. Those who are interested more in drinking beer than wathcing it being made (a rather boring and drawn-out process) would probably enjoy more the usual aftermath of Dark Star brewery tours - the vist to the brewery tap (The Partridge just a few hundred yards away) where good home-,made, locally-sourced food - and more Dark Star beer - can be enjoyed.

The brewery itself is not really geared up for food, although take-away beer can be bought.

“Excellent Local Brew”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

I don't recognise the photograph as the Brewery is an industrial unit at this address.The beers they brew are varied and excellent. If you find it difficult to locate an outlet near you, it is definitely worth a visit so that you can sample the many beers they produce.
