Fuller's will be hosting a very special free tasting in the upstairs saloon of Port Street Beer House for Manchester Beer Week.

John Keeling, Fuller’s head brewer, will be cracking open a host of RARE bottles, filling your glasses, and talking you through some lesser-seen beers. And we mean some lesser-seen beers...

John will be bringing a raft of the much sought after Fuller’s Vintage instalments. Fuller’s have created a new recipe of Vintage Ale every year since 1997, picking the best ingredients at the time, to make a strong beer with a complex character. Every bottle of Vintage Ale is individually numbered, making older Vintage Ales extremely rare and sought after. 

For this tasting John will be opening Fuller’s Vintage beers from 2005 (for sale at a cool £300 a bottle), 2010, 2013, and 2016. Don’t miss this one-off opportunity to compare and contrast a decade of releases. 

As if that wasn’t enough to whet your collective whistles. John will also be presenting bottles of Fuller’s Imperial Stout, Past Masters 1910 Double Stout, and Past Masters 1966 Strong Ale for your deliberation. 

We simply could not think of a better way to spend a Sunday evening. You could recreate the tasting at home but it’d set you back a cool £517.50 so bob along to Port Street and sample the Fuller’s canon for a simple £5 donation.
