Beer & Pork Scratching Matching

This episode I am back at my favorite local the Stormbird in Camberwell to taste the wonderfully fresh moreish “Half Bore” Session Ale from Hunter’s Brewery in Devon and the sensuous savoury citrusy “Inedit” Wheat Beer, which is the lovechild of the famed El Bulli chef Ferran Adria in collaboration with Spain’s mighty Estrella Damm Brewery. To chuck into the mix I brought along some Mr Trotters Pork Crackling which is another collaboration albeit not as headline grabbing of Rupert Ponsonby & Tom Parker Bowles. Very posh scratchings indeed.

Beer Vs Wine Charity Dinner @ The Thatchers Arms

The Thatchers Arms in Mount Bures in Essex held a Beer Vs Wine Charity dinner where Beer went head to head with Wine to see which matched best with the 5 course menu. Representing Beer was famed journalist Adrian Tierney-Jones whose charity was Help for Heros and Wine’s Ambassador was the prolific Tim Atkin MW whose charity was Amnesty International. It was a superb evening of food drink and much fun.
