Do something different together during a day spent in rural Herefordshire. In the first three hours learn the ancient craft of blacksmithing and visit a forge workshop in the heart of rural Herefordshire to be taught and guided in creating your very own bottle opener (to keep), with experienced instructors present all the way to provide you with plenty of help and guidance. It isn't all work, take a break in the woods before progressing to nearby Hillside Brewery to experience the brewing process up close. Get an insight into the ingredients and look around the brewery where every step of the process is managed in-house. Finally, sit back, enjoy the view and taste the finished product with a selection of classic ales.
