See what’s behind a pint at the National Brewery Centre

Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

Once dominated by breweries, Burton is the natural place to visit and discover more about an Englishman’s much-loved tipple.

You can tell you’ve arrived in Burton by the hoppy scent that hangs over the town.

For a well-rounded introduction to English brewing, imaginatively and colourfully told, you should head for The National Brewery Centre.

Though the history of beer making can never be ‘dry’, you’ll hear and see it brought to life through the real experiences and stories of the people involved: their social history and the artifacts, documents and machinery of their daily work.

With steam engines, restored vintage vehicles, and a glass of the real stuff from the centre’s own microbrewery, it’s a heady mix.
