First you will learn how to pronounce Smithwicks correctly. Informative and high tech tour as you learn the history of this beer and the secret to what makes it so good. At the end of the tour, enjoy your beer tasting with fellow tour mates. The town of Kilkenny is small and quaint. Smithwicks is easy to find.
Very fun experience. It's a short and intimate tour, and you get to learn quite a bit about the beer making process. They also allow you to interact with some ingredients, such as smelling different hops. The building is also right in the middle of the medieval mile of Kilkenny city, so it is conveniently nearby many other great pieces of history, like the Black Abbey. The tour doesn't take too long, and it is not too demanding physically. I recommend getting the package that gets you 3 beers at the end. It is not much more money, and you can relax and enjoy the nice bar at the end of the tour.
Not to be missed. This tour is a lot more intimate and entertaining than the Guiness tour, which is very crowded and chaotic. Smithwicks is a smaller brewery with an even longer history. Our tour guide was lovely, very welcoming, and informative - and the environment is much more charming.
This tour is worth the time and . What I found especially fun and unique was that they told the history of Kilkenny and the influences from outside foreign invasions on the brewery and town. Without spoiling anything, the tour was not just someone talking - there were lots of fun stations. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered our questions. Pay a little extra for the paddle tasting.......it's worth it!
Excellent tour highlights the history of the product and the family behind it. Pronounced Smith-icks as the w is actually silent. They utilize moving pictures framed TVs in one room to tell part of the history which was very well done and informative. Who wouldn't want to end their tour with a delicious pint or half pint of their product?!?
