What happens on the day?
Your guide will welcome you into the Visitor Centre, where you will set off for the 90 minute tour. Your Wadworth journey begins with an introduction to the brewery, followed by a steep climb to the top of the Victorian tower.
You will then make your way down through the four levels of the brewery, viewing the Mash Tuns, Hop Back and original open Copper on your way through. You’ll then take a visit to the Cooperage so you can see where the wooden casks are handcrafted*, followed by a short stroll to the Award winning Shire Horses* and stables. Take a look around the Sign Writing Studio where all the signs for Wadworth’s 250 pubs are traditionally hand painted. You are then invited to the Mezzanine Bar for a tutored beer tasting session. Here you will enjoy a range of Wadworth cask ales and have a Q&A session with your guide. Before going home with your choice of six handcrafted beers and a Wadworth bag, you will have the opportunity to browse the Brewery Shop.
