I booked this for my partner's birthday while we were away. It is safe to say we were not disappointed. It is great value for money and really informative. The free beer and tasting were a great perk too!!

We booked this on Monday for Tuesday and so glad we did. Very informative and a chance, at the end, to sample a number of beers that I hadn’t tried before. Johnny was a great tour guide too.
