Brewery Tours & Tastings

Meet the brewers and find out how our beer is made.

Brewer-Led Tours On Saturdays
(Temporarily Suspended)


Please note - Brewery tours will be temporarily unavailable from December 2022 whilst we move to our new site in Stockport. We are aiming to have them up & running at our new site by spring 2023.

‘Learned more about beer than I ever thought I’d want to know, but I was wrong – it was really engaging. Oh, and the beer is excellent’ (Google review)

Our brewer-led tours take you behind the scenes at our working brewery and guide you through a tasting of four Runaway beers – direct from the source. Try some malt, smell the hops, drink beer from the tank (brew cycle allowing) and find out how our beer is made.

Our Brewery Tours take around 90 minutes. Your tour will include:

  • A warm welcome & introduction to The Runaway Brewery, our history, ethos and approach to beer
  • A full explanation of how beer is made by one of our brewing team with an introduction to the key ingredients
  • A guided tour of our micro-brewery
  • A tutored tasting of 4 Runaway beers in our brewery tap room, where you can stay on for another beer or two afterwards if you wish.

Private Group Tours

‘Brilliant day out, brilliant beer, brilliant blokes’ (Google review)


Once we re-open in Spring 2023 we are happy to arrange private tours and beer tastings in our Taproom at the brewery for groups of between 10 and 20 people. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer larger group bookings at this time.

If you'd like to discuss booking a group tour, please contact us by email: info@therunawybrewery.com
