Greene King Beer Cafe, Bury St Edmunds

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.

Join Greene King as they take you on an outside walking tour through the brewery's history discovering their oldest buildings and finding out what they have been used for throughout time. 

The tour's knowledgeable guides will tell you everything you need to know about Greene King and how their beers are made.

Back in the Greene King Beer Cafe you will be able to watch a virtual tour of the brewery and enjoy a tutored tasting of their beers. 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. 

Greene King offer two tours - a Brewery Tour (which takes you inside the brewery) and their Walk, Talk and Tasting Tour (which does not go inside the brewery). 

To book a tour call 01284 843326 or email beercafe@greeneking.co.uk. Tickets: £18. Tours last 1 hour 40 mins. For Tour times visit https://shop.greeneking.co.uk/pages/brewery-tours
