Weekend Out & About: Leeds Craft Beer Tour

Leeds Beer Tours has launched a new guided tour experience, the Leeds Craft Beer Tour.

It takes guests on an exploration of Leeds’ vibrant modern beer scene, with the package including a brewery tour and tutored tastings.

Three of Leeds’ leading craft beer venues make up part of the tour; Nomadic Beers, a modern craft brewery specialising in cask ale, Turk’s Head the quality craft beer sister bar of 300-year-old Whitelocks and North Brewing’s City Tap, one of North’s bars showcasing their pioneering craft beers.

Owner and Beer Evangelist at Leeds Beer Tours is Mike Hampshire. The tours have been operating since 2019, beginning with their flagship Leeds Heritage Beer Tour. In 2020, Leeds Beer Tours won the Leeds and West Yorkshire Prestige Award for Specialist Tour Company of the Year.

“I’m really looking forward to showing tour guests Leeds’ uniquely vibrant modern beer scene,” said Mike. “It’s going to be a privilege to take guests to some of our great beer places, Nomadic Beers, Turk’s Head and North Brewing’s City Tap.”

Leeds Craft Beer Tour dates start in July but can be booked now directly via the Leeds Beer Tours website. Also available are Leeds Heritage Beer Tour dates and gift cards for both experiences.
