What we do

We run excellent beer tasting events that are engaging, informative and fun – Beers and Banter!

The atmosphere is informal, with themes ranging from beer styles (IPA, wheat beer, etc.) through to major beer producing countries (Belgium, UK and others) as well as important innovations. Everyone is encouraged to get involved and to support their favourite beer.
That is where the banter comes in.

Each event features eight very different beers. We provide tasting notes, rating sheets, a competition and some snacks.


Follow us on social media and join in with the banter!

If you like beer and would like to help at events which I am running in and around York contact me on 07836697660. You will have fun and be paid. Richard Morrice

Last week

Each of our tasting events features:

A theme, to pull everything together.

A carefully selected range of 8 beers, with a 10cl industry standard tasting sample of each one. This is enough to allow you to check out the colour, aroma and taste of the beer whilst not overloading your palate which would spoil your enjoyment.

Lots of background about the brewers and their breweries.

Banter (that's your job)!

A tricky competition, which can be undertaken as an individual or as a team of two. The prize is beer related and may include some interesting and rare books.

Some snacks.

Our Events

Beers & Banter tasting events will leave you entertained, enlightened and with a greater appreciation of the world’s most popular alcoholic drink.

We have a range of well-crafted Discover Events which run all year round. There is something to suit everyone, whether they have just started learning about beer or are very knowledgeable and looking for a challenge. We usually have a group of about twenty people, but more can be catered for.
