The combination of heritage beer and contemporary styles, set in a beautiful setting with a tour guide that can answer pretty much any question you may have about beer and brewing, sets us apart from other tours.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Harvey's Yard, Lewes BN7 2AH, UK

We start our tour with a stroll into the fabulous forecourt of Harvey's Brewery. Sussex's oldest continuously running brewery. We explain the history and its traditional way of working.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: John Harvey Tavern, Bear Yard, Cliffe High St, Lewes BN7 2AN, UK

It's then on to the unofficial brewery tap, the John Harvey, a couple of wonderfully kept cask ales from Harvey's.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Beak Brewery, Unit 14 Cliffe Industrial Est, Lewes BN8 6JL, UK

A 15-minute stroll from the John Harvey, taking in some local history en route, leads us to Beak, Lewes' most well-known and coveted craft beer destination. Expect heavily hopped US-style beers, fantastic food, and seasonal specials, including mixed fermentation and cask ales.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: ABYSS Brewery + Tap, The Malthouse, Davey's Ln, Lewes BN7 2BF, UK

A 15-minute walk from Beak to the town center takes us to Abyss Brewing, arguably the most popular beer destination.

    Excellent tour with some lovely beers from great breweries. Dan the guide really knew his stuff and was able to answer all of the questions that came up, and shared some interesting facts about the area and its beer and pub history.

    We had a brilliant tour of Lewes breweries with Dan - he's super knowledgeable and entertaining and answered our many questions! Would definitely recommend as a thing to do in Lewes - lots of knowledge also about the beautiful town in addition to the load about beer. Plus, all of the 6, 7, 8(?) different beers that were included were delicious and he was happy to switch out any we didn't want to try. Thank you Dan!

    Dan is a very knowledgeable bloke who obviously has a passion for the area and ofcourse the amazing beer the area produces. Everyone knows about Harvey's and quite rightly so, but the two up and coming other breweries we visited produce some amazing products which I will be visiting again on my next nights out in Lewes. I never knew they existed until now and glad that I have 2 new places to eat/drink when I visit the area as these are just not breweries but places to visit to eat/drink. One of the brewers took some time out to explain his journey and answer questions which again shows the customer love these people have. Don't expect to see how the beer is made, and the itninary doesn't suggest it will, but what you will get is a grand tour, alot of history and knowledge and ofcourse various samples of what the area can offer. Book it 🍺🍻
