Time: 14:00 - 15:30
Our final tour of the year provides the opportunity to see behind the scenes of our family brewery, which is the oldest in the Chiltern Hills and Buckinghamshire. It is a chance to understand how the wholesome, 100% British hops, malt and barley are used to create the characteristics of our award winning fine ales, and to taste some beers that you might not normally try. Each tour includes an introduction to the art of craft brewing, a brief history of The Chiltern Brewery, a tour of the Brew House and a tutored beer and food tasting with a selection of our locally made chandlery; all set in the convivial surroundings of the Brewery Shop and dining room.
Tours last for approximately 1 1/2 hours.
We recommend that you only eat a light lunch beforehand as there are plenty of delicious nibbles to enjoy.
We will be going all out for our last tour of the year! We will be pouring extra generous servings during our tasting session, PLUS you will be able to enjoy an extra beer that is not normally served as part of the tour. To complete your experience we will be serving our Lord Lieutenant’s Luxury Christmas Pudding, which is made with our award-winning Lord Lieutenant’s Cream Porter. So let’s get together and kickstart the Christmas season in style!
The Tour starts at 2pm, please arrive 10 – 15 minutes beforehand to enjoy a complimentary beer whilst you browse around our shop and reception room. The formal part of the tour lasts about 1 hour but many of our guests like to relax for longer over the beer and food. Most people arrange for their “chauffeurs” to pick them up around 3.30pm. Whilst the tour is all on one level, and is therefore suitable for wheelchairs, our courtyard can be uneven in places.
