The tour was a Christmas present and was a great choice. Knowledgeable tour guide (shepherd) who obviously loves his job. Lots of information provided and we never felt rushed. Group size was less then 20 so it wasn't too difficult to see was was being described

We spent a very enjoyable Sat afternoon at the Black Sheep brewery - the tour was great and very informative. The smell of the yeast and the hops in the fermenting room was amazing. All the staff were very friendly and there's a good selection in the gift shop. The beers available are as fresh as they come and there's... More

What a great tour guide, this is my second brewery tour and I came away with a better knowledge than ever. Being in the licenced trade I like to see where our beers come from and I was not disappointed. I highly recommend this tour.

Love Black Sheep beer, so had to visit the Brewery whilst staying in the area. Unfortunately, didn't get to experience the tour, but managed a pint (£3) in the bar and bought a souvenir from the shop. The food menu looked good, but didn't see any being served. Will return for a longer visit sometime.

Took the brewery visit with my two brothers on a Saturday afternoon. It is advisable to book as it was very busy. The gentleman who led the visit was very knowledgeable with some interesting tales. The visitor centre was well stocked for picking up some momentos.

Quite an interesting chat followed by a tour round the brewery. personally I didn't find that there was enough to see/watch, and the gift shop is expensive, but the staff were friendly

Thank 2gilly
