About Greene King Brewery Tours and Beer Cafe

Greene King is a leading UK brewer and pub company that has called Bury St Edmunds home for over 200 years, and it carries on a long heritage of brewing in the town.
 
They’ve been crafting fine British beers from the historic Westgate brewery since 1799, where their brewers use locally malted barley, water from 1,000 year old chalk wells and more quality ingredients in all of their famous brews. You can find their beers in the traditional pubs that Greene King runs in and around East Anglia, as well as in many of their 3,100 pubs, restaurants and hotels in cities, towns and villages located across the UK.
 
Greene King offers daily public tours of its Georgian-era brewery and, with six consecutive TripAdvisor ‘certificates of excellence’ to its name, the experience is well worth a visit. 

Visitors are taken on a guided journey around the historic working brew house to see where many of the nation’s favourite ales are brewed, including Greene King IPA, Old Speckled Hen and Abbot Ale, which is famously named for the brewers who used to work at Bury St Edmunds’ Great Abbey hundreds of years ago. 

The tour includes a trip up to the roof for one of the best panoramic views of our market town and finishes with a tutored beer tasting in the Greene King Beer Café.
 
The Beer Café is worth a visit in its own right with fresh beer on tap and locally roasted coffee, homemade cakes and light bites served throughout the day. Breakfast and lunch are also available daily and the shop offers beers and gifts to take away. Look out for some great ales inspired by the local region, including St Edmunds and Suffolk Springer.
