Malt the Brewery Tour 

Brewery Tours are back and with more to see and new processes to discover the new brewery tour is a must. The tour begins in the taproom where you’ll enjoy generous samples of all the Malt beers on the bar. Your host will talk you through each beer. You’ll then meet Nick Watson, Brewer and Founder of Malt The Brewery for a 45 minute stroll around the brewing floor. Nick will talk passionately about the history of brewing, building a brewery, making ale and the ingredients he carefully selects. You’ll then head back to the Taproom for a pint of your favourite beer. You’ll also enjoy 10% off beer purchased during your visit. Mats & Richard road tested the virtual ‘Tour in a Box’ for us during covid and had a really fun evening -you can read the full review here.
