Blake was a fantastic tour guide! The tasting tour had a great mix of tasting and touring. It was interesting to see where the beer is actually made (in real life! Not museum style!) and was a good, different way to spend an evening with booze! Blake was a fantastic host and very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend!! Thank you. visited Crate Brewery on 20 Jul 2017

What a waste of time. This is not a brewery tour and the guide keeps telling you that all the way through. As for sampling beers we were given a few of the smallest cans I've ever seen and then told that it's one between two. It's a complete waste of time if you want to see a brewery tour and a complete waste of time if you want to have a drink. We couldn't wait to get away after that presentation and were straight into the bar next door. If the guide doesn't want to do the tours they should get someone else as that's how he came across.

Reply from Beer Tasting + Brewery Tour

Hi Keith i'm sorry you did not enjoy your tour. The tour is designed and marketed to be a tasting tour rather than a brewery tour. We do cover the brewing process too however the main difference to most brewery tours is that you have beer tastings throughout rather than just at the end so i am mystified as to why you felt you didnt get enough beer to drink. As you can see from other reviews on here and also on other review websites all our other customers are amazed and pleased at the quantity as well as the quality of the beer we provide on the tour. If you had a personality clash with your host Blake then of course we do also apologise for that. Blake is a lovely guy who, again as per the other reviews below, most people get on with brilliantly and I certainly don't recognise the lack enthusiasm in him that you mention. Regards, James and the CRATE Brewery team.

Really great tour with lots of samples and interesting commentary! I bought it as a present for my dad for Father's day and he had a great time too. One recommendation would be at the end of the tour to have an area where you can buy some of the beers you had tried and other merchandise as we would have been really interesting in taking some home. visited Crate Brewery on 17 Jun 2017

A first class event and one that although the message regarding the beer and history came across, it was done in a very lighthearted way. Thank You john visited Crate Brewery on 20 May 2017

I was running late and was almost on the verge of not going when I decided to push through and go, hoping they'd let me join. They obliged happily and the tour was brilliant even if I lost half of it. Also got to meet really nice locals who were very hospitable to me. Would definitely recommend!

Really great experience - Jonny was very knowledgable and imparted lots of interesting information about the beers, while being a laugh at the same time! Tasted lots of different types including a fruit sours. Only bad part was that the heating had broken so it was absolutely freezing - apart from that loved the experience!

Our tour guide, James, was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and open to questions. As well as discussing the history of CRATE itself, James provided a fairly thorough overview of the beer production process, and tidbits of info regarding different styles of beer and their history. For your money you also get several samples (approx. 1/3 of a pint each) of different CRATE styles. Finally, we were given vouchers for 50% off pizza in the CRATE bar, so it's worth sticking around after the tour is finished! Elliot visited Crate Brewery on 07 Jan 2017

Very informative and at a good price. We were also given a leaflet on how to start a mini brewery at home which was pretty cool! Staff very friendly and tasted a variety of lovely beers. They were very generous with their beer tasting. Highly recommend. Was an enjoyable and unique experience. zoe visited Crate Brewery on 21 Jul 2016

Brilliant night and such great value for money. Our guide, Johnny, was really knowledgable and friendly, and we drank loads of really tasty beer whilst we learnt about how it's all made. Plus- BONUS- we got half price pizza as we'd been on the tour, and the sweet potato, blue cheese and walnut was one of the best I've ever had. All in all the perfect London date night ccm12345 visited Crate Brewery on 29 Jul 2016
