Local Brewery Tours

Do you enjoy drinking beer? Many people do, but how much do most of us really know about different types of beer and the brewing process? A local brewery tour is a good way to find out more.

There's nothing better than sitting in a great pub and drinking a great pint of beer. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon or an evening, surrounded by friends.

It's a special feeling - enjoying a great drink when surrounded by our company of choice. Many of us will have a favourite beer, or at least a favourite type of beer.

How many of us are actually aware of what makes our favourite drink taste the way that it does? Can we actually distinguish the individual ingredients.

Thinking about the production process can be a really good way to learn more, but also to enjoy beer to a much greater degree. The next time you sit down for a pint, consider how far away you are seated from the brewery that produced it.

With the rise of local breweries you may find that you're not many miles away from the source of your favourite tipple. Maybe you could find out a little more about how its made.

Breweries often welcome visitors, with a number of UK breweries providing guided tours. These tours enable you to take a look behind the scenes and see what's involved in the whole process.

They allow you to see how your favourite beer is made and also give you the opportunity to ask questions about the ingredients and the brewing techniques.

It's quite common for people to drop in on a French vineyard to take a look at wine production and yet the thought of a local brewery tour here in England doesn't seem to occur anywhere near as frequently.

Give it some consideration. You'll find that such tours can be interesting, informative and great fun.
