The Great Grainstore Brewery Tour
Your tour of the brewery will last approximately one and a half hours. Your day starts with a welcome on arrival from your tour host, followed by the guided tour, lasting approximately one to one and a quarter hours and takes you through the brewing process of Grainstore Beers, from seeing the raw ingredients to the finished product, taking in the Copper, Mash Tun and fermentation system.
After the tour you are invited to sample our flagship Ten Fifty, Cooking and Triple B ales, which can also be bought from our brewery tap after your tour as single bottles, or in gift packs.
If you have chosen the option of staying and enjoying a meal after your tour, we are happy to present you with a delicious Ploughman’s Lunch or Supper, incorporating our famous local Pork Pie, cheeses, real ale chutney made on the premises and bread baked using our yeast, all washed down with a pint of our fine Real Ale.
