Owen is a great tour guide and made the tour really fun. The pubs we visited were excellent and the beers exceptional. Owen is terrific at recommending what to try at each pub and has great knowledge of a variety of topics. Booking online was easy and all communications given out prior to the tour was helpful and informative. All in all well organised and a fun day out. 4/5 by Sharon Barker 15-9-2017

It was an enjoyable way to learn about the district, sample the beers and meet a variety of interesting people. 4/5 by Sue Pearman 21-3-2017
Loved the combination of beer & history - it made for a unique experience and far more appealing to a non-beer drinker who is accompanying a beer-drinking partner on the walk!
The inclusion of nibbles at a couple of the places was a great idea. The knowledge of the guide was fantastic and some really interesting lessons in history were imparted. The diversity of the craft beers on offer was very much appreciated, and the guide's suggestions for selecting from the range was most helpful. 4/5 by Nicole Woodward 19-3-2017
