Cornish Beer Tour

Cornwall has a tremendous history of producing fine ales – and that is a tradition that continues to this day.


We can show you some of the best of Cornwall’s award-winning beer makers from the national players down to the unique microbreweries that are taking the craft ale world by storm.

St Austell Brewery

The multi-award winning brewery has just won the contract to supply Tribute Ale for all British Airways long-haul flights. The brewery was founded in 1851 by Walter Hicks and is still 100% family owned. The brewery boasts a visitor’s centre, bar, restaurant and shop.

Driftwood Spar

This is a microbrewery, pub and restaurant in St Agnes on the north coast.

Cornish Crown Brewery

This microbrewery and pub is set in a quiet back street in Penzance.  They sell three small-batch craft beers and take pride in the fact that there are no diversions in the pub – no juke box, no slot machines and they don’t even sell food. However, you are welcome to bring your own and they will provide cutlery and condiments!


Founded in 1997 in Truro, the brewer of Cornish Knocker and Betty Stoggs puts great emphasis on having a low impact on the environment.
