Green King Brewery Museum

There has been a brewery on the site in Bury St Edmunds since at least 1700 and it's still going strong today!

The 'new' Brew House was built in 1938 and is a wonderful example of art deco architecture with Italian marble flooring and walls on the mash tun floor.

Guided Tours of the Brew house show how real beer is produced using natural ingredients and traditional brewing methods. A tour round our historic working brewhouse includes the best view of Bury St Edmunds from the roof (weather permitting). Start at the museum, tour the brewery and then taste the different beers in our Brewery Tap. After your tasting, you can go to the shop to purchase your gifts, souvenirs and cases of beers. The evening tour is a great way to start a celebration birthday, retirement, stag or hen night!
