Thoroughly enjoyed a tour of York Brewery on 7 Feb with my conference colleagues. Mike provided a very informative and entertaining presentation of the art of brewing in a jovial way. Of course the highlight was sampling the products🍺

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit here, the tap room is really nicely done out with breweries range on, we also took the tour which was excellent value as it gave you several tokens to try the beers afterwards.

Due to it being a quiet time of year had a tour with only me and the wife in attendance. It was a very educational and interesting one. Flo who took us through the process was informative, friendly and definitely knew her stuff.
