Brewery Tap

Visit Ludlow Brewery and we’ll personally show you around our working brewery. We don’t do formal guided tours but we’re always happy to talk beer! Why not try some of our lovely ales during your visit? And, if you’ve worked up a thirst with all the talk of beer, we’ve got a fully stocked bar and shop here too.

Based in a sensitively restored Victorian railway shed, our visitor centre and brewery tap are open to day time visitors throughout the week. Gleaming brewing equipment stretches right up into the old ceilings and we’ve got a comfortable and informal bar area with our full range of quality beers on offer.
