Your expert guide will talk you through:

  • How to taste a range of different beer styles
  • The 4 main ingredients of beer
  • How beer is brewed and how this differs per style
  • History of brewing in the UK and locally
  • The story behind the venues visited and drinks tasted

Our Tasting Tours last around 2.5 - 3 hours in total and can start anytime the venues are open. They generally work well as an afternoon/early evening activity when it's a little less busy and you can hear your guide talk you through the beers. 

You'll sample a range of styles from lighter beers such as pale ales, going up on the palette to IPA's and Stouts/Porters. Tasting measures are usually a 1/3 or 1/2 and these differ in amount depending on the venue however guests usually always have a drink in their hand (unless they drink super fast), and we find it's just the right of beer tastings for the time spent on the tour.

A selection of Cardiff's best craft beer venues below:

  • Brewhouse & Kitchen Cardiff
  • Craft Devil's Cellar
  • PIPES artisan brewery
  • St Canns's Alehouse

Just select the date and time you wish to attend on the tickets or contact us if you have any questions.

Discover the best of Cardiff's beer scene with visits to local pubs and taprooms with an expert local guide to talk you through the beers styles and history behind them all.

The deposit payment is equivalent to one person attending. This is refundable up to 28 days before the event or totally if Government restrictions mean cancellation.

During the checkout process you can let us know how many people you are expecting to join the group - however we don't need payment for these until 7 days before the event.

Our events require a minimum of 10 guests or equivalent payment for 10 - so if you have less then you'll just need to split the cost or join us on a publicly available tour with other guests where these are listed. Please note we can't combine private tour groups.

The atmosphere is incomparable; it will make you feel as if you are a member of the family and are in the countryside.
