Discover Belgian Beer at York Brewery
Wednesday 15 May @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Throughout the 20th Century Belgium was seen as the top country for brewing beer and there are so many great Belgian beer styles – Belgian ale, Flemish brown ale, Belgian Red ale, Saison, Belgian Golden ale, Trappist Beers, Abbey Beers.
It’s not easy to pick eight beers when there is so much choice – but we’ll do it. Breweries will be drawn from De Koninck, Liefmans, Rodenbach, Chimay and Orval amongst others. We’ll attempt to answer the question – ‘are Belgian brewers still a force to be reckoned with?’
You are a beer connoisseur if you are a bit further down the track. You've got a good range of beers that you like and you know quite a bit about beers, brewing and brewers. You like to try something new and share your opinions with other like-minded people. Life without beer would be much less fun.
What is included in the ticket price?
- 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.
