Brewery Tours


A visit to the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery is a must for any lover of beer!

Discover the generations of brewing expertise behind Hall & Woodhouse, brewers of Badger Ales since 1777. Over the course of 90 minutes, our knowledgeable, passionate tour guides will teach you how our master brewers combine the finest hops and malted barley to craft our award-winning beers; each brewed at our home in Dorset.

Once your tour of the brewery is complete, you will be invited to the Brewery Tap to enjoy a complimentary pint of Badger beer, a soft drink or a bottled beer to take home with you.

Brewery Tours run Monday - Saturday at 10:30am and last approximately 2 hours

Evening Tours are available subject to minimum of 10 people.
