Matt Weigold, Events manager, Horse & Jockey said:

“Our brewery trip is a unique chance for CAMRA members to go behind the scenes of a working brewery and following the journey of the raw ingredients to the finished product available on the bar. The brewery has come a long way in just three years, and we wanted to give CAMRA members a chance to find out more about the work that’s been undertaken during that time.

”Since launching the Horse & Jockey, we’ve had a lot of interest in our range of beers, with many people asking about how they are produced. We wanted to thank CAMRA members in particular for their incredible support since we opened the doors of the pub and felt a special open day would create the perfect opportunity to find out how we transfer the raw ingredients to the beer enjoyed in pubs.”

Tickets for Stancill Brewery’s open day can be purchased from the Horse & Jockey.
