Craft beer has been picking up more attention, and with an increase in demand, new breweries are popping up every day. However, there are a few brewery tours which take the cake! As a top beer distributor in Malta, our craft beer-loving team at Birra Biss takes a look at some of the best brewery tours around the world!
1. Guinness Storehouse (Dublin)
Located in an old fermentation plant at St. James’ Gate Brewery, a seven-story high pint glass, (capable of holding 14.3 million pints) welcomes visitors to this landmark of Irish stout. However, other than housing one of the world’s most informative brewing tours, the Storehouse also offers a variety of experiences – one of which is the chance to experience a multi-sensory tasting journey that includes smelling Guinness’ aromas before sipping on the velvet-smooth liquid goodness.
Visitors can even choose to learn the six-step ritual of pouring the perfect pint themselves at the Guinness Academy, or simply finish off their Guinness experience at one of the bars – one of which overlooks all the machinations of the working brewery, and the other which showcases 360 views of Dublin.
2. Black Sheep Brewery (North Yorkshire)
The tour at this historic brewery takes you on a journey from the start of Black Sheep’s story to the present day, and the tour includes a short video. Guests are then shown around the brewhouse to witness the magic unfold through the unique processes used to create the perfect pint of a Black Sheep beer.
Where else would a brewery tour finish if not at the bar? Guests sample a range of the brewery’s delicious fresh beers, and with eight rotating cask ales and up to ten keg beers pouring, they’re bound to find their perfect match! There’s also a bistro where visitors can warm up their body and soul and get a taste of Yorkshire with some hearty home-cooked pub grub.
3. Paulaner Brewery (Munich)
No matter the season, it’s always the right time to experience Munich’s popular beer culture, and arguably the best way to do that is through a behind-the-scenes brewery tour. Treat your senses to the smell of hops and yeast in Paulaner’s beer-making facilities, which include fermenting tanks and malting towers, and learn about the entire process of beer brewing. Top off the tour with a freshly-brewed beer and a Bavarian pretzel or a delicious meal in the delightful beer garden if the weather’s nice outside!
