This was a rather lovely time at the St Austell Brewery a couple of months ago. I’ve been here before and done the brewery tour, but back then it was different. You got to see a lot more of the actual brewery and the process and it’s all changed now. It’s a shorter tour, but also in some ways a little better too. There’s a much bigger emphasis on the tasting side at the end, which I am all in favour of.
As you can see from the bottles in the picture above, there was a good range and plenty to go around. It made the tour quite different and, in my opinion, a lot more fun.
I also really liked how they offered thirds of pints in the bar. So you could have a taster tray of 3 beers. Very useful indeed.
