Full description

The Manchester Microbrewery Experience is our 4 hour in depth walking tour which focuses on how beer is made in this great Northern city. You’ll see the equipment and listen to the founders or brewery staff talk you through the brewing kit at each venue.

We head out to Steve’s brewery in Ardwick to kick off the day where the founder of Beer Nouveau will talk you through his set up, along with some tastings of his freshest beers.

It’s then onto Alphabet Brewery where you’ll check out their kit and see the canning machines – along with the cool artwork (on the cans and also the walls).

Final stop is Manchester Union Lager for (you guessed it) tastings of Lager to finish off the day. These guys do one thing – and they do it well.

Your expert guide will be on hand to talk you through any beer styles sampled during the tour.
