Real ale fans from the
Sailors Beware Tent of Hyde visited our real ale
Mecca - the Beartown Brewery in Congleton - on
Wednesday 11th June.
The group met up at the
Beartown Tap pub from where Steve, our tour guide,
escorted the party on the short walk over to the
brewery. Although claiming not to be an expert,
Steve gave a very informative talk on the history
of the brewery and the techniques used in brewing
our favourite drinks, punctuated with amusing
stories that would not have been out of place in a
Laurel and Hardy two-reeler!
Then it was back to the
Tap for a choice of many Beartown ales. Two drinks
were included in the cost of the tour, which was
excellent value for money.
A very friendly and
enjoyable evening. Sailors Beware highly recommend
the tour to all real ale lovers.
