Went for the brewey tour, our guide was Steve. Very nice chap, knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was very interesting and educational. We finished with a beer tasting session and we got to try all the Greene King beers. If you like your beer then I would highly recommend this tour, good value for money at £12 each.

I mean what a trooper.....this Irish lass know her Greene King history. What a delight, once the tour is finished she then takes you to a private bar for tasting and crackers with green king chutneys and marmalade, also known as preserve! Great day.

We attended at 15.30 on Saturday and luckily just managed to squeeze on a tour, I think it probably is advisable to book in advance as these seem popular tours. Our tour guide, Susan, was fantastic, she was very knowledgable, funny and made the tour very enjoyable. Both my boyfriend and I both thought we learned lots about brewing and... More

Brewery tour is definitely one not to miss. Great views over Bury from the very top of the building and finishing off in the bar where you can sample all the different ales is the highlight

Fascinating tour through an historic and active brewery. Sights, sounds, smells, and flavours brought the brewing process to life. Our well informed guide was enjoyable to listen to and happy to answer questions. Lots of brewing history, local history, the science of brewing, the Greene King story and its business. All followed by guided tasting in the bar and freedom... More
