The afternoon includes the tasting of 6 artisanal beers and 5 small food plates, finishing with something sweet. The beer selection is curated by Jeff Boda, ex Beer Critic of The Chicago Tribune and Owner of Foreign Devil Beer Importers. Experience a range of remarkable craft brews each with a distinct character, flavour, aftertaste and it's own tale.
We will kick off with a refreshing wheat ale and a fruit-infused Japanese Summer ale. We then move onto a robust amber ale before sampling an intoxicating Belgian trappist ale. Finally we will sample a chocolate stout and then round off the tasting with a 15 year old digestif.
Each beer will be matched with delectable small plates of food that complement the beers, but don't distract.
Note: Don't expect any Heineken, Carlsberg or Budweiser!
