Founder Mike Wright’s brewery, launched in his garage a few years back, has gone gangbusters, but in a wonderfully low-key way. Visitors mingle among shiny tanks and French oak barrels with tasters or full glasses of beer, while hip hop plays on the hi-fi. Brewmaster Sean Burke studied in Germany, so don’t miss his pilsners and other Bavarian offerings.

What to drink
Start with the flagship Urban Farmhouse Saison and then try the rest.
Ask about stashed-away bottles like Bier Royale and Myrtle, two mouth-watering sours that sometimes bubble to the surface. Don’t tell them we told you.
