Join us to celebrate a new Hamilton beer made from the hops and history of Dundurn Castle.
Beer making was a valued skill in the 19th century, and is still an important part of Hamilton’s local food and drink community. Reid’s Dundurn Ale by Valentino’s Restaurant is inspired by the legacy of William Reid, the 19th century Head Gardener at Dundurn Castle. Valentino’s has brewed a modern beer using the hops grown in Dundurn’s Kitchen Garden. Guests are invited to Dundurn’s Hayloft to sample the beer and learn about the process from the gardeners who grew the hops and the brewer who crafted the beer. The interactive afternoon will include beer samples and other historic recipes, a video about the brewing process, and displays of modern and historic brewing equipment.
This is a free event. Valid photo ID is required to sample beer.
