Love a pint? When you are next in Kilkenny, you need to take the Smithwick’s Kilkenny Brewery Tour.
The Smithwick’s tour starts with the history of the beer, and how the brand started and became the success story that it is today. The tour is run from the old Smithwicks brewing site in Patrick St, Kilkenny.
During the tour you go through all the different stages of the brewing process. The tour is very interactive and you enjoy the different aromas of brewing as you wander through the corridors of the updated brewery.
The tour runs for 1 hour and is guided which is a great advantage. As you immerse yourself in history, the modern twist of digital recounts keeps you interested. Even if you are not a beer lover you will find the making of Smithwick’s beer very interesting.
The last step of the tour is where you get to enjoy a pint of the liquid gold (this is included as part of your ticket). Tickets are cheaper if you purchase them direct from the Smithwicks Experience website.
