This hands-on experience is ideal for any real ale fan and provides a great introduction to the subtle art of brewing beer.
The basic principles of brewing beer have remained unchanged for centuries and during this tour you will see all parts of the process including: fermenting, where the sugar is broken down into alcohol; conditioning, which gives beer a smoother taste; and filtering which stabilises the flavour and gives beer its polished shine and brilliance.
N.B. Conwy Brewery, Wild Card Brewery and Elmtree Beers is only valid for one person.
You will begin the day with a tour of the brewery where you will learn about the equipment used to make the beer. Then, under the guidance of a brewing team, you will carry out the various processes such as how to mash in, boil, ferment and condition ale whilst picking up brewing tips and advice. To complete this experience you will taste some of the brewery's beers for yourself.
At some locations you will be also treated to a light lunch, accompanied by a beer of your choice.
Please note the exact itinerary of the day will vary dependent upon the location, please check upon booking your experience.
