Brewery Tours

Explore our brewing process – old and new

Based at Salem Bridge since 1874, Batemans has a long and cherished reputation for brewing quality beers. Come behind the scenes with us to explore four generations of brewing history – right up to the present day.

Our fun, informative brewery tours take place twice a day, seven days a week in the summer and five days a week during the winter months. We start at the old Victorian Brewhouse, where much of the equipment is made of brass or copper, before visiting our magnificent new Brewhouse – nicknamed the Theatre of Beers.

Evening tours include full access to all the Visitors Centre’s facilities, and the price includes two half-pints of Batemans beer and a delicious Lincolnshire supper.
