Great combination of history, beer tasting and scenic walking tour of the area. Highly recommend for those looking to find some lesser known pubs and expand their knowledge of the history of beer in England.

There were 6 of us on this Fat Tire tour. Nick was a great guide. He had lots of fun facts and stories about the pubs we were visiting and beer knowledge as well. I would definitely recommend this tour. We had one person who doesn’t drink beer and she even found one she liked! Fat Tire was great with keeping in touch before the tour and letting us know what to expect.
