Beer Tasting Evening

Date: Thursday, 11 May 2017
Time: 7:00pm
Venue: Brewhouse and Kitchen, 31-35 Cotham Hill, Clifton, Bristol BS6 6JY

Can you tell the difference between a stout and a porter?

Do you know how to identify a gueuse or a lambic from a saison?

Know your Chinook from your Equinox?

Mystified, excited or just plain interested - the Beer Masterclass organised by OUSBB unravelled the secrets of beer styles, hops, and beer brewing. It was held at the Brewhouse and Kitchen in Cotham, just off Whiteladies Road and close to Clifton Down station. The evening included: an explanation of the beer brewing process and a “tour” of the microbrewery at the pub; tasting of 8 different beer styles; tasting notes and materials; and in-between beers nibbles. For those who fancied it, there was an option for a burger and fries meal (or a vegetarian option) to finish off the evening.

This event was open to OUS Bristol and Bath members, and their guests, friends and family. All participants had to be over 18.

The venue was wheelchair accessible.
