Illustrated Talk

Powder Monkey Brewing Co Ltd, 67 Heritage Way, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 4FL

The head brewer will talk about the history of brewing beer and the connection to the navy.

Enjoy an insider’s tour of the Powder Monkey Brewery and hear about the story of IPA. The Powder Monkey Brewery is located within Magazine E in Priddy’s Hard, which was originally used as a Gunpowder Store. The building was built in approximately 1859 and was used in various formats until 1982.

Mark will talk about the recent renovations and restoration of the building enabling Powder Monkey Brewery to move in. He will also cover where the company name came from, the beer he makes on site, the science behind the beer and there will be time for all of your questions.

Feel free to stay for a refreshing beverage after the tour – though this is not included, so you will need to pay at the bar!
