ROBINSONS – Brewing PERFECTION SINCE 1838
See the old with the new as you explore the brewing process...
Based in the heart of Stockport for almost two centuries, ‘Robinsons’ is one of oldest and most respected names in British brewing history.
A proud family of independent brewers, Robinsons is one of the most advanced and sophisticated breweries in the UK, with a worldwide reputation for real ale.
Our guides will educate and entertain you on your journey around our fascinating brewery. They’ll be delighted to answer any questions you have about the brewing process. The Brewery Tour takes about one hour and includes three 1/3 pint samples of our beers. If you really are an ale aficionado, you can buy a ‘golden ticket’, which not only includes the Tour, but also your choice from one of four gift sets, plus two pints (or six 1/3 pints) of our delicious beers at our Unicorn Bar.
We have a range of ticket types available. So, whether you’re 18 or 80, in a group or coming to see us by yourself, we have just the ticket to suit you perfectly!
