Brewery Visits

As part of our commitment to supporting smaller independent breweries we run several Brewery Visits during the course of a year. Some are fairly local and arranged for a week-night, whilst others are part of Saturday day-trips. Coach/minibus trips pick up at Pontefract and Wakefield but arrangements can usually also be made for picking up at South Kirkby. Other trips make use of the region's public transport network. Some brewers make a small charge which may also cover something to eat, but the opportunities for sampling are usually very liberal or unlimited! Watch the Branch Diary for forthcoming trips. Come with us via the Brewery Picture Gallery
