I am very happy to announce that Chris Kay, head brewer at Bristol Beer Factory will be sharing his passion for beer by co-hosting a weekend of beer matching dinners at Bishopston Supper Club in September.
For anyone who has never attended one of my suppers before please check out the Bishopston Supper Club page (link here) to see how it all works, there are also photos and reviews to check out. As ever, I’ll be creating simple, classic dishes using local and seasonal ingredients, and serving it all up ‘family-style’ in my front room, the only difference in this case is that a specially selected artisan beer would be served to taste with each course (rather than the usual BYO policy).
Chris will be showcasing a range of beer styles, some made here in Bristol, some further afield, but all from small, independent producers. He’ll be on hand on the night to tell you about each one, and to answer any beer-related questions you may have. This guy knows his beer! We’re very excited about this event and hope that if you’re interested in real ale and/or beer and food matching you’ll not want to miss out!
The number of places is limited and on this occasion we request that a deposit of £15 per person be paid to Grape & Grind, in advance, the remaining £30 to be paid, in cash, on the night. Don’t forget to tell us on which night you’d like to attend, when booking.
