Be an apprentice brewer for the day at Derventio Brewery

Derby, Derbyshire

Roll up your sleeves as you become an apprentice brewer for the day in one of Derby’s many micro-breweries.

Help the head brewer and learn the basics of beer making, before getting stuck in to mix, siphon and pump your own beer.

The experience includes a mid-morning bacon sandwich, hot drinks throughout the day and lunch, including a real ale tasting session. All budding brewers leave with a ‘Beer Gift’.

Derventio Brewery, a 6 barrel micro-brewery, is famous locally for its award winning real ales produced and bottled on site. The brewery is set in a truly historic location, in Darley Abbey Mills, a collection of mill buildings dating back to the late 1700’s and forms part of the Derwent Valley Mill World Heritage Site.
