Derby Brewing Co has its iconic pub on the backs of the River Derwent, on the east side of Derby. Not far from its brewery HQ, which offers tours and a shop.
At Derby Brewing Co they are passionate about beer and love to share their passion and knowledge with everyone else who loves beer. So if that is you, you are going to like the micro-brewery tour.
The Brewery was opened in 2004 and was one of the first modern style micro-breweries. The likes of Punk IPA would later follow, but Derby Brewing Co was in the vanguard.
The trip includes a tour around the brewery with a detailed explanation of the brewing process by the engaging and knowledgeable brewers. You can also enjoy samples and a complementary lunch. You even get a bottle of beer to take home with you
Tours are available on selected Saturdays and cost £25 per person, which includes all real ale samples and lunch. Tours usually last around 1.5 hours followed by lunch.
Selling all of the packaged beers and merchandise, the shop is located at the site of the brewery and head office at Masons Place Business Park. Three of the Derby Brewing Co’s best selling ales are Business As Usual, Hop Till You Drop and Quintessential. These are available to buy in individual bottles, cases and gift packs.
The shop also showcases the five craft beers in the Derby Brewing ‘Crafted’ range: Wild Bear IPA; Blood Wolf American Red; Bald Eagle American Pale Ale; Rock Python German Pilsner and Midnight Raven Porter.
As well as award winning beers the shop offers a variety of gifts and merchandise including clothing, glasses, mugs and bottle opener key rings.
