Our brewery is much more than just a place to make beer. It’s a place to meet friends, try new beers, taste wines and cheeses, tour the brewery, learn a skill, even brew some beer yourself. We’re easy to find and we love visitors!.

Firebird Brewery Tours

A brewery tour is a great evening out, whether it’s the science and history of brewing you’re interested in, or just the beer! Our tour evening costs £17 and includes unlimited beer, fantastic cheese on toast from Sussex Charmer, your own Firebird branded glass to take home, and 10% off all our beers in the shop. Either Bill or Richard will be on hand to show you round and answer your questions, and you’ll be welcome to try any new beers we’re developing. We’ll also put on wines and soft drinks for non beer-heads and drivers.

Our tour times are 6.30 to 8.30 the second Tuesday of each month, but if you’re a party of 10 or more we’ll create a custom tour for you at a day and time to suit.
