Situated in the beautiful cathedral city of Truro, visit Skinners working brewery.  It runs tours for both groups and individuals. During the tour you are welcome to relax in their atmospheric visitor centre. Their award winning range of famous Cornish cask-conditioned ales are each named after characters from Cornish folklore. Whether you are visiting Cornwall or would simply like a drop of their ales, a guided tour is a must. It is just a short walk from Truro city centre with its Cathedral and many shops, restaurants and bars. 

The public tasting tours offer a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes and are followed by tutored beer tasting in the brewery’s tap room. All brewery visits and tours are led by experienced guides who’ll teach you about the brewing process, share their stories of the brewery and provide a fascinating insight into our ales.
