Hidden gem
5/2019 • Kaverit
Connoisseur Ales is a fantastic spot hidden within St Helens. They’re only open to the public on the first Saturday of the month and if you arrive early you can go on a tour of the brewery set up. It’s my go-to stop for any friends and family visiting. They make quality real ales and it’s a nice friendly atmosphere inside. Perfect for craft beer lovers and CAMRA members.

Regular beers plus new brews
12/2018 • Soolomatka
Others have described the more general positive aspects. For me, it’s not just the regular top class beers, it’s those one off’s you get to taste at the open days giving a totally different experience and really testing the pallete. The different tastes and flavours, always confirming to vegetarians requirements (and I am not one), both test the purist CAMRA members taste checklists, and also allow those who just enjoy beers to try something really enjoyable out of the ordinary. I had some of the Germanic style bottles over Christmas, not everyone’s choice and not your standard bitter or large red beer taste, complete one offs but I am still enjoying them. Your group/society might also enjoy their own brewery evening and tasting session, perfect for 15 to 20, though you could squeeze more in. Try it, with an open mind to different tastes and beers you won’t be disappointed.

1st time but not last time
12/2018 • Kaverit
A great 1st time visit to the brewery taking advantage of it being open each Saturday in December, as other reviews the lounge is snug and basic but the hospitality and beers and ciders make up for that. Some great information shared on the beers and ingredients and some interesting chat with other visitors and Gillian the host, will definitely be revisiting in the future

Great Visit
2/2018 • Kaverit
Every time I've been an open Day I've never been disappointed. On a couple of occasions I've introduced new people to the Connoisseur brewery and their beers and they have all gone away very impressed. Great beer/ales, great family run business which I hope has continued success for years to come.

Small but perfectly formed brewery tour...recommended.
11/2017 • Kaverit
Did the tour here on a recent Saturday. The premises is rather snug but the tour was informative and the beers excellent. Walking distance from St Helens Central. Fab selections of Mead on offer also. We had a great afternoon and I would come here again. They deliver too.Recommended.

Great place
5/2017 • Pariskunnat
This is a working micro brewery in the middle of St. Helens just across the road from central railway station. Open first Saturday in the month for drinks and brewery tour if you like.

Small friendly set up and they do very good beer! Discount for CAMRA members

Spent a very enjoyable afternoon with our U3A group. Informative tour and it was nice to sample ales direct from the brewery.

Amazing little gem in St Helens!
6/2017 • Kaverit
Connoisseur Ales is a wonderful, very special place, a great family run project brewing tasty local ales which also promote the heritage of St Helens (some lovely tales behind the names :)!) And its right next to St Helens Central train station and the bus station.

They are open first Saturday of the month and you can go and visit, do a tour, or just try one of their new ales in their lovely bar or beer garden.

Very knowledgeable guys and fascinating to do the tour. I fully recommend this - take guests here and show them the hidden gems of St Helens! I will be buying most birthday presents from here from now on ;).

Thank you for what you are doing - this is exactly the kind of thing St Helens needs!

Local Brewery Opens its Doors
3/2017 • Kaverit
Open only on the first Saturday of each month (plus one evening (can't remember which) for bottled sales). Full range of bottles available and a selection of 6 or so on draught. Mr Fredericks cordial for the drivers and fruit wines and mead also for sale. Small seated area which leads through to the brewery tour. Great to have a couple of beers and a chat with the brewery guys. Will definitely go again.
