Bristol Beer Dinner








To celebrate Bristol Beer Week this year, I’ll be co-hosting another beer matching dinner at Bishopston Supper Club on Friday 12th September, this time with renowned beer writer, Adrian Tierney-Jones.

Adrian is an award-winning freelance journalist, author and speaker writing and talking about beer, pubs, food and travel and how they all intersect. Books include Great British Pubs, 1001 Beers To Try Before You Die and the forthcoming Britain’s Beer Revolution (with Roger Protz). Contributor to The Oxford Companion to Beer and World Beer. Head of Judges for the World Beer Awards and also ends up on various juries in Italy and Belgium.

For anyone who has never attended one of my suppers before please check out the Bishopston Supper Club page 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).

Adrian 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. 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.
