If you enjoy beer and love sampling the array of craft ales that have proved popular in recent years, why not be part of this exclusive beer tasting within the Grand Magazine at Fort Amherst and sample a range of the best brews from the UK, Europe and the US.

The selection will feature microbrewery beers and ales for you to taste whilst discovering how the different styles ranging from India Pale Ales, wheat beers and Porters, to craft lagers and fruit flavoured beers are made. We will provide a tour of our fascinating tunnel system, and will also host a fun pub quiz during the tasting to ensure a great time is had by all, and to give you chance to show off your new-found knowledge.

There’ll also be chance to try some specially selected beers and brewers including Workie Ticket's Champion Bitter, Twickenham Fine Ales, Hiver the Honey Beer and St Austell Proper Job. So whether you deserve a treat yourself, or you think this would be an ideal Father’s Day present - don’t miss this unique opportunity!

* If travelling to the Fort by car why not leave it overnight in our locked car park, grab a taxi home and pick it up the following day (we accept no responsibility for any loss of damage that may occur while your car is in our car park).

* Please bear in mind the tunnel floors are uneven, so wear sturdy shoes and bring a coat with you as the tunnels and other buildings are unheated.

* Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable (unless cancelled by Fort Amherst).

There are only 30 places available so book your tickets online as soon as you can to avoid disappointment as our recent tasting events sold out weeks before the closing date! There will be no tickets sold on the night, only prior booked tickets online available.
