The Stonehouse Brewery offer tours by arrangement for groups of between 15 and 45 people.
They generally start them at 7.00 p.m., Monday to Thursday, and they last two hours. There is a bar in the brewery and on arrival guests are offered a pint of beer (at least 2 or 3 of their beers will be available).
They then give a tour of the brewery and a description of the process. As they are not a very big operation this doesn’t take too long, but can be as detailed or as general as the questions you ask. Please note that they are very much a working brewery with wet, slippery floors; machinery and cleaning chemicals. As such guests must wear closed shoes and not flip flops or any open toed shoes. It can also be cold in the brewery, so warm clothing is also advised.
A light ploughman’s supper (bread, cheese and pickles) is then served and the party is welcome to continue drinking the beers. They only have Stonehouse beer available for drinking on the tour but non alcoholic beverages are available. The full bar is open until 7.00pm Monday to Saturday.
They charge £15.00 per head, (with a minimum charge of £225 per tour) which includes all beer & food. They would need to receive payment at least seven days prior to the tour date.
