This is a great thing to do on the island whether you like beer or not. Informative talk about the brewing process and the history of beer. BTW, some of the nicest beer I have tasted anywhere in the world.

An informal and informative 'tour' of this mini brewery. Owner/operator gave the tasting and tour. Absolutely brilliant, thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

The song about a pub with no beer is sad enough but a brewery with no beer, is a real bugger. Apparently they had an accident!
