Thoroughly enjoyable tour around some of the breweries in Leeds.
I love Mark and have done 2 beer tours with him previously so I knew this very first gin tour would be exceptional too. All three distilleries we visited were uniquely different and wonderfully so, it was so great to meet the people behind the gin and learn how and why they decided to start. To be able to chat to them whilst also tasting the gin always makes it taste better in my opinion, their passion just shines through.
Mark is so knowledgeable and his passion for shouting about and supporting independent breweries and gin distillers knows no bounds. You can see the friendships he has created with everyone once you're on the tours. He really is one of a kind and you will not be disappointed if you book onto a Brewtown Tour with him!
I booked this for myself, my boyfriend + 4 friends as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. I specifically booked a weekend in Leeds to do the tour, and I am so glad I did! Mark, who runs the tour, was excellent. Really accommodating, super friendly, and undoubtedly knew his stuff about beer and the brewing process. We were taken to 3 breweries around the Leeds area. The tour never felt rushed or too 'formulaic' - it was informal, friendly, and just really great fun. I started the tour not particularly liking beer but there really was something for everyone and I sampled loads of beers that I absolutely loved. My boyfriend, a real beer enthusiast, absolutely loved it and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. Not only did we sample some delicious beers, but also learnt a lot about brewing and the brewing process along the way. I think we sampled around 12 beers on the tour which was great, most about 1/3 pint size. I would definitely recommend a big breakfast and taking some snacks along with you to soak it all up! Thank you very much to Mark for such a memorable and fun filled birthday present. Loved it!

Mark delivers a polished tour. He’s passionate about the breweries and products he is showcasing, brings the group together and is extremely knowledgable about beer / brewing generally and in the local area. This adds value to the tour, which would not be achieved from...More

Very informative and full of passion. Each brewer, along with our guide provided a fabulous experience.
Had a really good afternoon. Good range of venues and beers. Good company. Mark and the brewery owners were very knowledgable.
Really good tour of three very different breweries. Informative, entertaining, and tasty! Our guide was very knowledgeable and approachable, and our hosts provided good chat and plenty of free samples. The only thing missing was more opportunities to buy from each brewery.
Mark organised a fantastic tour for us which comprised three fascinating breweries - all of which were pushing the envelope of contemporary brewing. We learned about unfined "hazy" beer (never again will I assume that a clouded beer automatically means that the beer is "off")......More
