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*
