BEER TOURS UK
Discover the hidden delights of British brewing
The return of Beer Tours UK under Covid-19 rules
The coronavirus pandemic halted all Beer Tours UK activities of course as, overnight, British pubs and breweries closed.
However, we are poised to recommence after the Government deems it is safe for pubs and brewery taps to reopen under the necessary anti-virus measures. Recent reports suggest this go-ahead is likely to be given for reopening in late June or early July.
Whenever this happens, we will restart our tours in the safest possible manner as soon as we reasonably can. We will work with our transport, brewery and pub partners to adhere strictly to all proscribed Covid-19 precautions. Accordingly, we will choose our venues with the greatest of care.
We plan to offer new tours for later in the year and for 2021; one highlight is our first hop-harvest walk on the Worcestershire/Herefordshire border - scheduled for mid-September (see New Tours).
If you are interested in exploring a tour to celebrate the return of the Great British Pub please contact us for all relevant Covid-19 updates and further tour information. Expressions of interest, without commitment, will be welcomed.
I have had the pleasure of going on 2 beer tours with Steve Hobman from Beer Tours UK. The first was to North Wales and Liverpool in 2013, and the second was to the Peak District and Manchester in 2018.
On each tour we visited both rural and city local breweries and pubs, some were classic examples from the Victorian era and early 20th Century. We sampled both traditional British real ales as well as some newer, craft beer styles.
Steve not only has a fantastic knowledge of British beer, but he ensures we learnt some of the history and culture of the places we visited.
The accommodation on both holidays was in delightful pubs, and the tours were well planned and paced.
As a British expat visiting the UK it was a great way of seeing parts of Britain I had never seen and enjoying the best of British beer.
