Brewtown founder Mark Stredwick knows a thing or two about good beer. An avid ale enthusiast since his first (legal) sip way back when, his passion for exploring the ins and outs of the beer world was kindled when he left the UK to travel the world.
After his 16 years overseas - which included a 2-month craft beer tour of north western America, a stint as a tour guide with brewery tour company Dave’s brewery Tours in Sydney, Australia - Mark moved back to his home county of Yorkshire. Looking into the local beer scene on his return, he was bowled over by the number of microbreweries in the area and the quality and variety of beer styles they were producing.
But a small-scale operation often means small-scale availability and Mark was frustrated that many visitors to Yorkshire wouldn’t get the chance to explore the incredible range of craft beers and real ales the county has to offer.
The solution? Yorkshire brewery tours featuring some of Yorkshire’s best-kept beer secrets. Where small groups can learn about the brewing process, explore the inside of a working brewery and sample some of the most delicious beers in the UK. On a Brewtown brewery tour we can guarantee plenty of samples, fascinating chats and beautiful Yorkshire scenery – and, above all, a fun day out with a group of fellow beer aficionados.
Brewtown Tours doesn’t exist to show you beers and breweries you’re already familiar with. Instead, we’re here to take you on a journey of exploration and discovery. With our wealth of local knowledge, and our passion for quality beer brewed in small batches by independent producers, we aim to connect curious drinkers with local makers. Enjoy a selection of local beers and drink in the sights of God’s own county – quite literally.
Brewtown Brewery Tours are perfect for connoisseurs and non-beer-drinkers alike. Our tours are ALL inclusive, so once you join us, you won’t have to worry about a thing along the way. So if you’re interested in connecting with Yorkshire’s craft beer community, hop aboard the Brewtown minibus, grab a seat, and get ready to experience a malt-itude of amazing tastes.
At Brewtown, we’re committed to supporting local breweries and communities. Our philosophy of buy local, buy small, buy quality extends to everything we do.
We keep our tour groups small, and we emphasise quality over quantity in our approach to beer – we like to take the time to appreciate the skill and craftsmanship in every sip, and encourage you to do the same.
Our ambition is to bring people together to become a part of the beer community, giving you the opportunity to taste and experience the craftsmanship of our local producers.
