Greene King has been brewing in Bury St Edmunds since 1799. 

Greene King has grown to become the UK's largest independent brewer from its roots in Bury St Edmunds, where it remains at the centre of the town. The Visitor Centre - http://www.greeneking.co.uk/visitor_c... - tells the history of the brewery from 1700 onwards, and offers guided tours of the brew house where cask ales including Greene King IPA and Abbot Ale are produced.   

The Visitor Centre has storyboards, illustrations, artefacts and audio technology which provide a great insight into the history and art of brewing.
