Brewery Tasting Tours
Have you ever wondered how we turn water, hops, malt, and yeast into delicious craft beer? Well we are throwing open the doors of our brewery, The Brewshed, to give you all the answers!
The aim of our Tasting Tours is to take guests on a journey through the history of brewing, the story of craft beer and the brewing process itself using tastings of our beers to help illustrate this tale.
Starting at our main bar we’ll show all round CRATE including areas not normally open to the general public to see all the equipment we use. You’ll also get to sample all the ingredients and hear how we combine them to create our special recipes.
Our brewery Tasting Tours cost £15pp and typically last an hour or so with tastings of beers from our range throughout included.
Priced at £25pp our new Premium Tasting Tours last about two hours and includes tastings of all our beers paired with our new ‘Delicatessen’ sharing platters’*.
*Designed for two people to share and usually priced at £18 these platters include cheeses, meats, olives, pesto, breads, preserves etc all of the highest quality and chosen specifically to complement our beers. We can also accommodate any vegetarians/dairy-intolerants etc members of the group if you let us know about this in advance.
Groups of 10+ can book private tours for groups of friends or colleagues. Please email us on email@example.com to enquire about your preferred date.
We also have regular public tours that individuals and smaller groups can book on to. Dates for these are released approximately one month before the actual tour date so please click the button below to check for upcoming dates.
Its probably just the drink talking…. well we certainly hope so! Here are just a few responses from our customers. We always love to here how you liked the tour so please feel free to let us know. Easy on the heckling though!
“Simply Brilliant! James and the team at CRATE have created a perfect tasting tour. Great value for money – we tasted 6 or 7 beers and got a full tour of all the workings of this rapidly growing craft brewery. James really knows his stuff and brought humour to the occasion so the 2 hours flew by.” JB
“An education – I expected to taste a few beers and, as it was a premium tour, looked forward to some tasty munches too but I didn’t expect the depth of knowledge exhibited by the staff at Crate. Luke answered all the group’s questions with an impressive level of expertise and added in some local history which made it all the more fascinating” Dave E
