Nottingham Beer Tasting Tour
Explore 3 different Nottingham CRAFT BEER VENUES for beer tastings.
12pm Sat – Ye Old Trip to Jerusalem, Brewhouse Yard, 1, Nottingham NG1 6AD
Nottingham is a city dripping with history; from Robin Hood to Raleigh bikes, ancient sandstone caves to lace making and of course it’s famous castle. “The Queen of the Midlands” has a rich brewing heritage thanks to both James Shipstone and Sons (Star Brewery) and the Home Brewery. Notts also boasts a trio of pubs with strong claims to being the UK’s oldest. Something to shout about indeed.
This tour will resume post pandemic in 2022
Not all of Nottingham’s glory lies in the mists of time. It’s craft beer scene has exploded in recent years with a number of highly acclaimed breweries setting up shop. CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain Award winning Castle Rock has been joined by more modern outfits such as Black Iris, Neon Raptor and Liquid Light.
The city itself really suits a walking tour with pubs, taprooms and breweries all in reasonably close proximity to each other. To that end we’ve teamed with a wide selection of venues making it possible to offer guests a range of both public and bespoke private tours.
Our first stop is the Crafty Crow, which is the outpost for the extremely environmentally minded Magpie Brewing. Conceived on the golf course by three homebrewer mates who’d definitely all retired too early, Magpie has more than tripled its production since it began brewing in 2006.
Next is the aptly named Organ Grinder. The flagship of one the forefathers of local craft, the Blue Monkey Brewery. Though they started out in 2008 their new facility at Giltbrook came online in 2010 and where they can brew up to 40,000L a week. You’ll be treated to a brewers chat as you sample some of their multi award winning suds.
Last stop is the Overdraught which is home Nottingham’s Totally Brewed. Certainly one of the new kids on the block, beginning life in 2014 TB’s style is definitely reflected in their pumpclip art. Modern styles, new world hops. Pushing boundaries and starting conversation.
We provide group tours for corporate events, stag and hens parties or a general knees up!
