Greene King Beer Cafe, Westgate Street, Bury St Edmunds IP33 1QT

The leading UK brewer and pub company Greene King has called Bury St Edmunds home for over 200 years, and it carries on a long heritage of brewing in the town.

The brewery has a fascinating history going all the way back to 1086, when monks would brew ale on the site of the Great Abbey using water from Bury’s chalk wells which are still used today by Greene King. 

The historic Westgate brewery since was established in 1799, using local malted barley, and water from the 1,000 year old chalk wells 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 pubs, restaurants and hotels in cities, towns and villages located across the UK.

The Brewery Tours gives you the opportunity to enter the Brewery and climb over 100 steps to the roof for a fantastic view over Bury St Edmunds.

The tour finishes back upstairs in the Greene King Beer Café where you will be able to enjoy a tutored tasting of our beers brewed here in Bury St Edmunds and Belhaven Brewery in Dunbar and taste one of our new beer based condiments.

You will receive a free bottle of beer to take away and a 10% off voucher to spend in the café and the shop on the day (minimum spend of £5).

Each tour takes around an hour and 40 minutes

Why not come early and have something to eat in the Greene King Beer Café before your tour or stay and relax afterwards.

You MUST wear flat enclosed shoes and you MUST wear a mask. No walking aids can be used in the Brewery as the steps are very steep.

Greene King offer two tours - a Brewery Tour and their Walk, Talk and Tasting Tour
