Heritage Beer Tour of Leeds

The Heritage Beer Tour of Leeds is run by Beer Evangelist and founder of Tours of Leeds, Mike.

Mike is passionate about beer! Not just the drink itself but its role in heritage, society and culture. The story of beer is a fascinating one nowhere more so than in Leeds, where there is a rich beer history and a fantastically vibrant, modern and independent craft beer scene.

Mike has been professionally trained by the Beer and Cider Academy and is a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers and Brewery History Society, founder of Festival of Brewers and National Coordinator for Tryanuary.

He first set up his tours in 2019 to share his knowledge of beer with other people and to take them on a fun and interesting journey. Less than a year later, he was awarded the Leeds and West Yorkshire Prestige Award for Specialist Tour Company of the Year 2020.

The Heritage Beer Tour takes place at a selection of venues in Leeds city centre.

The Heritage Beer Tour lasts approximately 3 hours.
