Butcombe Takes Its Brewery Tour to the World Now On Google Street View

Butcombe, the West Country’s fastest growing brewery can now welcome virtual visitors to its brewery tours on Google Street View – the first brewer in the UK to do so.  

Virtual visitors can enter the gates, view the yard and the inner workings of the Brewery, admire the fermenting vessels and see the much-loved tasting room.  They can also have a good look around the Brewery shop.

Guy Newell, Managing Director of Butcombe, says: “Although we love to see people on our Brewery tours here in Bristol, it’s great to be able to now welcome virtual visitors too.  I suggest that cyber guests arm themselves with a pint of Butcombe whilst viewing, so that they can get as real an experience as possible!”

Butcombe’s street view Brewery tour is at:
