Bristol Beer Dinner – Saturday 5th October

Chris Kay, head brewer at Bristol Beer Factory and I will be celebrating Bristol Beer Week by co-hosting another beer matching dinner at Bishopston Supper Club this October.

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, all from small, independent producers based in and around Bristol. 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 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 £10 per person be paid to Grape & Grind, in advance, the remaining £30 to be paid, in cash, on the night.
