Great educational tour packed with history and culture. Great to visit a brewery that's managed to modernise, fend off the competition and still retain that friendly family atmosphere. No limit on the sampling at the end of the tour which basically pays for the tour....More

Fuller brewery tour is an outstanding way to learn how to make beer. Our guide, Dave, was excellent in his profession. But keep in mind that your are walking in a working environment, so you need to be able for stairs.

Our tour guide was John and he was very knowledgeable, answering all of our questions. He was very welcoming and there were no 'stupid' questions! There were only two of us on the tour so it was pretty much a tutored tour and tasting. Amazing!...More
