See how we make our great beers…
Imagine a Brewery Tour, where you are able to enjoy a tour of a working brewery at the hands of one of the brewing team and imagine all of this in beautiful surroundings that will WOW even a non-beer lover (if there is such a person!).
Well don’t imagine – come and see us because at the edge of the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire sits our little Hillside Brewery. We are very proud of it indeed; we have worked hard to take these ramshackle, disused farm building and make a real, proper brewery out of them.
But we know it’s not (just) about the buildings – it is about the beers and how we make them, so come and find out on this brewery tour and beer tasting experience!
You can see, touch, smell & experience the brewing process up close, before sitting back to taste a well-earned ale overlooking some of Gloucestershire’s most stunning landscapes. Come and lose yourself in an experience unlike any other, where effort and passion combine into a great experience.
This is much more than your normal brewery tour… Over the course of an hour and a half you will try the different ingredients used in making beer, tour around the brewery seeing how the ingredients relate to the brewing process, taste 4x of our classic ales and we like to finish off with the health benefits of beer (which is always a nice way to finish).
We will see you at the bar.
And if you want to extend your visit…?
Our ‘Friends of Hillside‘ offer a range of great local accommodation, superb food and a very warm welcome for those of you wanting to make more of a stay out of your visit. If you let us know what you are looking for we will be happy to make a recommendation. Here are a few suggestions of great places to stay in the Gloucestershire and Forest of Dean Area.
