Visited the shop on Tuesday 26/04/16 ... didn’t have time to hit the bar itself. Good range of St Austell beers as you’d expect including seasonals and small batch releases, such as the Tamar sour, the large format Belgian styles, a saison and a rauch beer. 6 bottles of the non big format beers for £12 was a decent enough deal. Friendly service. Well worth the stop just to load up on some interesting St Austell ticks, would liked to have had time for a drink.

We visited the St. Austell Brewery on August 2014. Old brewery, with some modern parts, but where you can still see some old brewing equipment (some in use, some other not), as fermentors, boiling kettles, malt mills. They also host a little exhibition of breweriana and old equipments. Modern kegging plant, recently produced their first lager, so they had to place outside some large lagering tanks. Visit includes a tasting session of several bottles. Nice taproom, very beautiful, with almost the whole range of St. Austell on cask, and a few ones in keg (Korev and some belgian styled one). Food seemed to be nice, although we didn´t try it. Strongly recommended visit.

The brewery tap of the St Austell Brewery, with a brewery museum attached. Hicks Bar is at the very top of a warehouse building, accessed via an iron staircase outside. It’s light and airy, with light wood tables and comfortable chairs, some covered with barley and hop sacks. Up in the rafters are barrels and woodworking tools. There are about 10 hand pumps and perhaps 12 or so bottles, which can also be purchased in the shop downstairs. The staff were very welcoming and, as you might expect, the beer was nice and fresh. When we were there they’d just introduced a delicious raspberry porter which I’ve yet to see elsewhere. (Visited 27 March 2012).

The brewery tap for St. Austell, whose beers I usually like. Very fresh Proper Job. There’s a small museum attached to the pub. Friendly place, worth a stop if you like this brewery, or if you’re thirsty after the Eden Project.

Nice brewery taproom located at the visitors centre, go up the steep stairway at the outside of the building, and you walk into what looks like a traditional pub. Restaurant was used for jazz concert while I was visiting and there seems to be events like this on an ordinary basis. Meanwhile i got good service at the pub, even got to sample a new product from bottle, cornish bock. Knowledgeable staff. Almost empty pub at my visit, early evening.

The pub at the St. Austell Brewery Visitor’s Centre is open past the regular brewery tour opening hours, which makes it convenient to visit any time. They have a proper restaurant and cafe as well as a bar where you can get the freshest possible Tribute, HSD and whatever else happens to be tapped.
