From Our Editors

Nestled in the heart of Northampton, Phipps Brewery pays homage to traditional brewing. After 159 years of independence, Phipps NBC became part of the Watney Mann empire until 1974, when Carlsberg took over the site and Phipps' Bridge Street brewery closed. Phipps has managed to revive, offering a wide range of beers available on draught and in bottle. From stouts to pale ales, the beers are made with 95% English malt and 60% English hops, with the brewery using time-honoured recipes, as well as exploring new flavours. Phipps brings back the world of welcoming pubs selling local beer with The Albion Brewery bar, where customers can drink and dine, watching the beer being brewed.

An interesting tour with samples of different types of ale to try. Pie and mash was delicious and loved the atmosphere on a Sunday afternoon. Will definitely be returning.

Very interesting history of the site and the company as well as British politics and trends influencing the country's history of brewing. Steak pie after the tour was lovely and the beers we sampled were fabulous. Something for everyone.

Although the brewery is quite small and the tour quite short there was a lot more history for the guide to tell about the history of Phipps brewery which was very interesting. The food was very good and the staff very friendly a very enjoyable evening.

A great buy. Lots of interesting local info and a great trip to the cellars with plentiful samples during the talk. Lovely Steak and Ale pie to finish the evening. Well worth the £24 for a Birthday present.
