Welcome to the Adnams Brewery TourThe home of Adnams SouthwoldStaring the Adnams Brewery Tour

Behind the walls of our Victorian building in the heart of Southwold sits one of the most modern breweries in the UK. Over the past few years the brewery has undergone a complete refurbishment with the replacement of the brewstream being the most recent update. 

This state-of-the-art installation recovers 100% of the heat and steam from each brew, 90% of which is used to reheat the next. This reduces the amount of gas needed during the brewing process by 30%.

State of the art BreweryThe new system can also brew larger batches inless time, making more efficient use of raw materials. It is also very efficient in water usage with a ratio of 3.2 pints of water to every pint of beer, compared to the industry average of 8. It even cleans itself and we’re trying to programme it to make the tea too.

But don’t just take our word for it, book a tour, come and meet one of the brewery team and see it all for yourself.

Your tour of the Adnams brewery will explain the beer making process from choice of malted barley and hop varieties through to tasting the delicious finished product. You will see parts of the brewery that are normally not available to the general public, and see the sheer scale of the brewing equipment and the buildings in which it is housed. 

Tasting Adnams at the end of the tourThe tour takes approximately 1 hour and is followed by a tutored beer tasting, lasting circa 30 minutes. You will then be accompanied to the Adnams Cellar & Kitchen store where there may be an opportunity for you to meet our wine team to taste a selection of our wines on offer and to collect your bottle of Adnams Beer. The cost is £12 per person, which includes the tour, tastings, and a bottle of beer to take home. The tours are only available to over 18s and booking is essential as spaces are limited.
