Family Fun

When you think of a brewery, you may not immediately think of fun for the whole family, but we try to cater for all ages. We host several events throughout the year which are family friendly and you can even bring your dog (on a lead).

What events do you host?

We have our brewery tap night which is normally on the last Friday of the month which is like a pop-up pub. Each month there is a different theme from pub quiz, to live music and open mic nights – always free entry with food available and are family and dog friendly.

We also offer a range of different events that you may not expect from a brewery. Examples of some of our past and upcoming events would be a 5k charity fun run, dog shows and a pop-up spa which are always popular.

We are also open for private events, such as birthday parties, have a look at some of our on-site activities and experiences here. We have even organised events such as christenings (we know what you’re thinking and you are right – that is the way to wet the baby’s head).

A full list of our upcoming events can be found by clicking here.

What can the kids do?

In our newly converted Hop Barn we have the mezzanine floor set up with ping pong, table football, retro Nintendo 64, connect 4 and giant jenga which can all be used for free at all of our events.

Outside we also have a kids play area for them to enjoy. This can be seen from the mezzanine floor, balcony or outdoor patio area so you can enjoy a drink while still being able to keep an eye on your kids.

What about WIFI access?

Never fear, for those of you who can’t cope without being connected to WIFI, we have free coverage (no sign up required) across the whole site and most mobile providers being able to access 4G on site too.

How far away are they? How long will it take me to get there?
