London Fields Brewery are hugely passionate about their beer and want to share what they do with as many people as possible, so they are holding brewery tours every Saturday at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm, Sundays at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm and now on weekday evenings. They are a great opportunity to give you an insight into what they get up to under those East London railway arches.
During your tour of London Fields Brewery, they will be talking you through the equipment and explaining the beer making process. From why they use certain hops and what difference the choice of grains make, to how they package is all integral to the finished product. You will see parts of the brewery that general public normally do not have access to.
The tour takes approximately 30 minutes and includes a full tour of our East London brewery, followed by a tutored beer tasting in the Tap Room, joining the dots between the process and the glass.
Groups are welcome but they can’t take any more than 20 people at any one session. London Brewery Tours are available to over 18s only and please book in advance via the ticketing system below as spaces are limited.
