Stumbled across the York Brewery tour and so glad we did. The tour guide Alan was very knowledgeable and friendly. Very engaging in the tasting room after the tour where we learned even more about the various (and tasty!) beers. Well worth a visit.

Whilst in York we decided to do the York Brewery Tour. Even though it's only a small brewery, the Tour is very informative. Mike our guide was very good, knowledgeable, & entertaining. Would recommend this tour when in York....worth the £8 entry.
