The tour continues in the old part of the complex with its historical buildings. There is also a house, for the “beer tester”, who worked for the brewery in the 19th century. The house was built without any stairs or doorsteps (easy to guess why that was!). There is also a tour of the modern production line and finally the pub, where you can get to digest some of the beer.
