For your safety
We will continue to follow Government guidelines related to Covid-19 once tours have resumed. Under current restrictions you will be required to wear a mask at all times during your the tour, however this can be removed during the tasting, and to maintain social distance at all times. If the easing of restrictions go ahead on 21st June as planned we will review and adjust these requirements as we see fit to do so.
You will be required to follow all on site rules as instructed to do so no matter the Government guidelines at the time of the tour. Failure to do so may result in removal from site.
Hand sanitizer will be placed at multiple points along the tour route and additional cleaning of all touch points will take place after all tours.
Your safety is important to us. Please stay close to your tour group and follow all instructions given by your tour guide at all times. No flip-flop style shoes are permitted in the brewery. Long, flowing clothing should also be avoided. Please note the tour route includes several flights of stairs and there are few places to sit down, so those with mobility issues may find the tour challenging.
We regret that we are unable to take any children aged under 16 or babes in arms on any of our tours.
