An excursion past a brewery? What's pleasant about that? The Mosel Marauder will be ROTFL, or possibly arranging a keel-hauling for the excursion organizer.
I think going to a brewery might not be the best of things for Mike

Yes the excursion organiser, defend to the elf and safety rules ant thought best to avoid a trip on foot to the brewery.

Caving, Garden Railways
Days two and three at the Wychbold and Stoke Prior Railway

I was allowed to visit the signal box at Stoke Works and it was there that I met James.

After a brief chat I was invited up onto the footplate.

Next was a brakevan ride around the garden. Unfortunately my height precluded me from getting a good view. Spiteful Brakevan didn't look too impressed either.

This was followed by a cab ride in Toby . . .

. . . and a ride on the rear balcony of Henrietta.

Winson then took me to both ends of the unfinished railway.

This is where the branch line will eventually start at Brookside Station.

At the other end of the railway, the double track will next pass over a low viaduct. Some of the materials are already on site.

All too soon my visit was over. Here I am waiting for a train to take me to my next destination.

It turns out that there isn't much passenger traffic on the line as the LGB is primarily a freight operator.

So Mike has to cadge a lift from a passing engineering train....
