Discover the Art of Brewing in Windsor
When Burge’s Brewery closed its doors in 1931, it brought to an end a tradition of Windsor brewing that had lasted for well over 300 years. Nearly 80 years later, the Windsor & Eton Brewery opened its doors and is now busy restoring the art of brewing to Windsor. The beer is brewed using malted barley grown on the Royal Farms on the Windsor Estate and traditional Fuggles hops. The result – beers full of local flavour and character.
Take a Tour of the Brewery
On the first Wednesday of the month, you can do a fun and informative evening tour of the brewery which usually lasts around 90 minutes. The tour includes information about the raw materials, the brewing process and, of course, plenty of opportunity for tasting.
