National Brewery Centre
Based just a stone’s throw away from Derbyshire’s Lion Head Hotel, The National Brewery Centre finds itself in Burton-on-Trent. Burton is world renowned for its brewing reputation and heritage, making it the perfect place to visit for a guided brewery tour.
What to Do While You’re There?
Dive into the history, art and fun behind brewing with the National Brewery Centre’s guided and self-guided tours. For the full experience, take a guided tour around the historic museum and allow our expert guides to provide an interactive tour you’re sure to remember. Not only will you be taught all about the history and production of our beer, but you’ll also get to taste it. At the end of your tour, you’ll be taken to the Brewery Tap bar to sample some of the award-winning ales brewed on-site.
If you would rather discover the museum at your own pace, you can also opt for a self-guided tour. As a part of either experience, you will also receive beer tasting tokens that equate to one pint and free parking. For those more experienced beer tasters, look out for the Half Hogshead Tour on the second Saturday of each month. As a part of this, you will enjoy tapas and beers that have been carefully selected by our experts to display how they can work together. You will also receive a guided tour of the museum, free car parking and a complimentary hot drink upon arrival. If you fancy something different, you can also take on an escape room to put an end to the Brewery Bandits.
Food and Drink
In addition to the beer tasting and tapas experiences, The Brewery Tap is also open to all who wish to come in and enjoy bar snacks and traditional ales. Open Wednesday to Sunday, the Brewery Tap offers a contemporary feel and features some drinks that have been brewed on site such as White Shield and Red Shield. If you happen to visit on Sunday, you can also enjoy the Brewery Tap’s lunchtime carvery. Featuring only the best hand-carved meats, beef dripping roast potatoes and garden vegetables, you’re sure to be fuelled up for the rest of your afternoon. In addition to their regular menu, also keep an eye out on their website for any changes such as their Pizza and Peroni Thursdays. They can also take bookings for parties for those that are staying with us in groups.
Once you return to our Belper hotel, you can rest your weary legs and enjoy the delights of our homemade cuisine. Our pizza restaurant has earned a fantastic reputation across Derbyshire as well as all of the accompanying items on our gastropub menu.
