Highly recommend this tour! Just as informative as any brewery tour I’ve ever taken and they had a few unique ways of processing their beer! People say it’s difficult to find, but we hired a driver for a few hours and also went to Four Square Distillery and Sunbury Plantation, which were sort of nearby. Two free beers given with... More

Great tour, the whole top floor of this big new brewery has been converted into a viewing platform and interpretive center. The guide was friendly and informative and overall the brewery has put a huge amount of work into setting the place up for tourism. That said, finding the brewery was pretty hard. It is actually located a little bit... More

this is a great place to visit and very well organised except don't bother googling it as you will be really confused as their website has no mention of tours and other web sites direct you to their old site in bridgetown. The tour takes place at their new premises near oistins. The guide was really knowledgeable and at the... More

It was good to get a taste of the different rums and taught about each but disappointing that you only get to see how rum is made via a video and only see the bottling factory for a minute. Not what I was expecting. Also worth noting no air con in most of the buildings (including shop, bar and restaurant)

The Banks Brewery is working on a new visitor centre and shop and, at the time we went (took the bus to Newton from Bridgetown) they are not offering ANY tours. Unsure of when they will reopen, so perhaps the next traveller can check it out in a month or two and post online.

Living just south of Milwaukee, we weren't sure we wanted to tour a brewery while on vacation. We skipped the tour, headed straight to the gift shop with a recently concluded tour and drank some free beer. Bought some neat souvenirs to bring home, took some pictures of the Banks sponsored Cricket Team practicing in the stadium next the brewery... More

This is a good tour starting with the history of the brewery and seeing some of the old copper Kettles. After the tour you are invited to the small bar where you can sample the complete range of thier products. There is a charge but not expensive. Also opportunities for soucvenirs etc from the shop. If you like Beer then... More

Goes great with food! Little bitter bite that cuts through spice and heavier dishes!

We went along - the hotel told us this was open and gave us a leaflet - we passed the place a few times so caught a cab up to it. It was no longer running - we were less than impressed.
