Londoners and visitors to the capital city can enjoy their own taste of Oktoberfest this autumn thanks to City Cruises’ exciting new collaboration with craft beer experts Fourpure Brewing co.
For one-night only, 4th October 2018, the unique beer-themed Thames river cruise will offer a sociable evening of craft beer tasting, live music and a different view of London’s famous sights, from The London Eye to Big Ben and Tower Bridge.
The two-hour cruise will feature an interactive introductory talk on craft beer, led by experts from the Bermondsey-based brewery Fourpure. Five of Fourpure’s craft beers, inspired by travels around the world will be served including their award winning Pils Lager and Oatmeal Stout alongside their Session IPA, Easy Peeler and American Pale Ale. As the cruise sails down the Thames from Westminster Pier, guests will enjoy live music and stunning night time views from either the open upper deck or the saloon.
Fourpure Brewing Co. is one of the most innovative and exciting craft brewers in the UK. Started in 2013 in London, their approach to exceptional brewing is all about attention to detail and not cutting corners. In an age-old industry they aspire to constantly innovate, be nimble and progressive and yet strive to stay true to the principles of brewing – respecting the four core ingredients used to make beer: grain, yeast, hops and water. This was the inspiration for the name Fourpure.
Kyle Haughton, managing director, City Cruises commented: “We are delighted to expand our choice of themed cruises to include one dedicated to a British favourite – beer – with our celebration of this drink taking place during the most famous beer festival of all – Oktoberfest. Although Oktoberfest celebrations are becoming increasingly popular in the pubs and bars of London, we think sailing past the Tower of London, the Shard and the Houses of Parliament whilst sampling a homegrown London craft beer can’t be beaten. Fourpure Brewing Co. beers are second to none and a tasting experience onboard was a natural collaboration, which we are excited to offer our customers.”

A 2-hour cruise from Westminster Pier departing at 7pm on a return journey
