Update August 2020. Tours are still suspended until further notice. We can’t see how we can deliver a tour safely and viably within current guidelines.  If you have a voucher and would like a refund please contact the company you bought it from.  However, all companies have extended their vouchers until the end of November 2020 and any bought directly from the brewery or already redeemed are extended indefinitely.  If you have any questions please email

Tours start at 11am most Saturdays. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before to give time for registration etc. You must book or we may not be able to accommodate you.

If you already have a voucher please check available dates on the right and then email or call 0191 3771991 to book.

A visit to The Durham Brewery is like no other. Beer is a fascinating beverage which is deeply embedded in our culture. You will learn about beer history, beer culture and the way we make it. We have an extremely wide range of beers and there will be an opportunity to sample draught and bottled beers with an insight into how they are made. Tours take around 1.5 hours and include a tutored tasting of three beers.  After the tour there is an opportunity to relax in the bar and make purchases in the shop.

NB. We are a microbrewery with a small area. Although we call this a tour please don’t expect a lot of walking around.

Wheelchair access is possible to all areas. We have a disabled toilet.
