The event will see six handpicked ales and beers matched against a six course taster menu chosen by Robinsons Brewery’s Executive chef Christian Whittleworth. With courses such as chicken balti, deep fried salt and vinegar whitebait and chips, chorizo Scotch egg and Moroccan lamb burger all matched with award-winning beers, the event will unite beer boffins and foodies alike.
There’s a Beer For That is a campaign backed by Britain’s Beer Alliance with the aim to get more people understanding and loving our national drink by educating consumers about the variety of beer available in the UK and encouraging them to discover different styles that will fit a wide range of occasions and food.
Many experts argue that with its diversity of styles and flavour, beer has even more food matching potential than wine. Food and beer can be complementary, contrasting and cleansing to create special combinations and a different taste experience compared to drinking`beer on its own.
Neil Gannon, Marketing Lead for There’s A Beer For That, said: “Our Beer Club originated as a way of getting people together to talk about beer on Twitter every Wednesday evening. Based on the success of the online Beer Clubs we have run so far, we decided to create Beer Club Live Events. We will host an evening, in partnership with great brewers and pub companies, where people can learn about the quality, diversity and versatility of beer through tasting a range of brilliant beer and food pairings in a convivial atmosphere and at a great venue. We are delighted to be working with a high quality brewer and operator such as Robinsons.”
John Robinson, Brands Manager for Robinsons Brewery said: “We are delighted to have been asked to host the event at our Visitors Centre. We are extremely proud of the many different award-winning beers we have produced over our 178 years of brewing so the chance to showcase heritage brews such as Old Tom with our newest craft beers like Steam Lager, 9 Hop IPA and TROOPER really gives a great timeline of the history of our nations favourite drink.”
Robinsons and There’s A Beer For That’s will host their live Beer Club at 7pm on Wednesday 13th July from Robinsons’ award-winning Visitors Centre on Apsley Street in Stockport. Tickets cost £20 per person and are available by calling 0161 612 4100 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
