With Record Store Day upon us let’s take a moment to reflect on beer and music. The two have long enjoyed a relationship of mutual love and respect. It’s celebrated every year at events large and small from Inverness, through Cumbria’s Silloth, past Conwy in Wales, down to Hastings, East Sussex.
Last night was our very first Beer Club. Acclaimed writer Pete Brown took over the Beer For That Twitter account between 7pm and 8pm and we asked you to have your burning pale ale questions at the ready. You totally delivered. We received hundreds of tweets from around the globe enabling Pete to offer his expertise on pale ale history, food matches, characteristics, alternatives and much, much more.
Have you ever wondered about the difference between a pale ale and an IPA? How about a porter and a stout? What temperature are you supposed to serve each beer at, and which foods pair best? What is each beer made of? Does the glass you drink out of really make the beer taste different? So many questions!
