Is there a beer that pairs best with lamb chops? What about cheddar cheese? And if you’re having chicken Madras is there an ale that matches perfectly? Yes to all of those…and every other food you could throw at us last night. For that was the theme of Beer Club number eight, beer and food. For such a wide ranging topic you really need an award winning beer and food writer which is just we had in Mark Dredge, a three time winner of Beer and Food Writer of the Year by the British Guild of Beer Writers. It doesn’t get more expert than that.
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.
