Tasting set-up was great.
Tasting set-up was great. Tour was too long. More historical - less process - and I care more about process.

Recommend this excursion as it gives you the history of how Speights Brewery began with all the old machinery displayed as a museum on the same site where the beer is made today. After tour the beer tasting began! Great beer and cider!

It was a little rushed as we took so long to get off the ship. This seemed to rattle our driver which was a pity. The tour guide at Speights was Keith and he was excellent.

While over-priced this tour is still pretty good. You get a good tour of the brewery and lots of tasting at the end.

You are given vouchers for either beer/wine/softdrink where you can use one at each pub, so not bad. Read Less

Very interesting and informative. Worth doing even if you dont drink beer as they give u a cider instead of beer. My husband loved it and it is the only gravity fed brewery.
