Found the brewery tour purely by chance on a rainy day. Turned out to be a really interesting visit with the added bonus of tasting some great beer! Highly recommend the tour and the beer!

Great way to spend an hour or so. Really good value for money and the beers are all top notch and served in the local Keswick pubs so if you find one you like you can order a few more down one of the locals.!...More

Not 100% sure on that one as part of the £10 entry fee included tasting a selection of the craft ales. I would recommend phoning to enquire?
