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.

The tour was informative. The food was good. Plus you get beer tasters & tokens for 2 pints of your choice.

I didn't realise that Northampton had such a great brewing history. First of all a really interesting talk & tour of the building with samples of 3 different beers freely available.This told us about present day practice as well as historical facts. Then the meal we had chosen was served in the bar. A few hours of good beer & good food.

We were met with a warm welcome and everything was very organised. The tour was fascinating, particularly the history of beer making in Northampton. Everyone was relaxed and friendly. Lunch was pleasant particularly the free pint of beer we had with it! Definitely recommend as a gift or as a nice day out.

It was a gift, but I have been told it was brilliant to see how the Beer is brewed. Well worth it.

A trip to Phipps Brewery is well worth the time. It is in the original building and so much of the old workings are still there. The beer is very good and find time to try one of their home made pies and mash.

Really knowledgeable guide, lots of history of the brewery. Nice tour of the brewery and plenty of free beer to try. Afterwards we had a nice Sunday roast and a token for a free pint at the bar. Highly recommended!
