During our “Brewer for a Day” experience you will brew a full commercial scale batch of beer, from mashing the grain through to transferring 300 litres of wort to a fermenter and inoculating it with yeast.

Working alongside our master brewer you will learn about the history of beer, the various styles of beer, the brewing process, the ingredients and recipe creation- -the science behind the art of Craft Beer.

The day includes Tasting Paddles from our” Prickly Moses” range as well as some guest taps and delicious food created in our Tasting Room Kitchen. At the end of the day choose your favourite beer and fill one of our “Growlers” to take away with you. The experience is limited to very small group sizes and tailored according to interest and ability.
