All the staff here at The Jolly Sailor Brewery are proud to announce that we are now able to hold brewery tours and brew days!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a quality ale? Do you know someone who would like to get in to brewing but doesn't know where to start? Why dont you call us to book your very own personalised brew day or brewery tour?

Our prices are very competetive and are as follows:

For a full brew day it is £75 per person (maximum party of 4). This price includes a full day with our brewers (9am-5pm), unlimioted tea and coffee, a light lunch and some bottled beers to take home.

For a brewery tour it is £10 per person or for group tours (minimum of 6 people) it is £7.50 per person. Both prices include a 1/2 pint (or a soft drink for under 18's) in our onsite pub after the tour.

*Please note that brewery tours and brew days are buy appointment only*

Circle of loaf has arrived

Circle of Loaf bread beer has arrived! Tonight will be our first official tasting of our new bread beer with some of the guys from Bluebird Bakery. This deliciously creamy bread beer is made with the breadcrumbs of surplus loaves. We then cropped some yeast from the brew to return to the bakery where some more bread will be made. A true 'Circle of Loaf'! Read more

No CO2, No Problem

Hopefully we'll be back up to normal Co2 stocks soon but in the meantime drinking real cask ale is the answer! There is no Co2 required in the production or serving of cask ale and we have some fantastic summer styles for you to try. So get down to your local boozer and support them still by drinking their offerings of real cask ale! Read more
