BEER DAY BRITAIN

A walking tour of Manchester takes in

three breweries. Smell the hops and grains at

the Beer Nouveau Brewery before visiting the

taproom at the Alphabet Brewery & GRUB

which has live DJs and amazing street art

on the walls. Finish in the Cloudwater Brewery,

recognised across the word for award-winning

beers, which you can enjoy on tap, at

your leisure!

North Brewing Co leads the way with a

tour in Leeds. Opened in November 2015 with

three signature beers it now has a core range

of five as well as a number of one off creations.

Next, nestled in the historic Thornton’s arcade

is Tall Boys Beer Market, specialising in rare

imports from the States, and sticking with the

theme, Tapped is an American style brew

pub with an impressive range of keg and cask

beer. Completing the walking tour is Northern

Monk Brewery, which pays homage to the

monastic heritage of brewing.

If you find yourself in Norfolk or Suffolk you’re

guaranteed to be served a pint of Adnams.

Established back in 1872, this independent

company based in Southwold is producing

around 85,000 barrels a year and until 1953,

and a for a period between 1970 to 2006, casks

of Adnams Ale were still being delivered to

Southwold pubs by horse and dray.

Today distribution is from the company’s

state-of-the-art centre which features the UK’s

largest living roof. Known as the Sky Garden,

it’s made from a variety of sedum species

which help insulate the building. Rain stored in

the plants is harvested and used to flush staff

toilets and clean company vehicles. Combined

with solar panels, the company has reduced its

energy bills by 50%.

The Adnams brewery tour last 60 minutes

followed by a 30 minute tutored beer tasting.

Visitors will see one of the most modern

breweries in the country, including a

self-cleaning brew stream!
