Beer & Charcuterie Tasting 5th November
We’ve enjoyed trying out online events recently and thought it was time for another one! This time we have partnered up with the brilliant Crown & Queue Meats to host an online event at 8pm on 5th November, recorded at All Good Beer in Hackney Downs. Tasting Event Packs are available to pre-order now [click here to order]!
Beer and meat, eh?
Seems pretty out there, we know. Those of you who ordered a Superior Liquid Goodness pack from us recently may have tried Crown & Queue’s delicious ‘Pigtails’ – made using some of our Push Push DDH Pale Ale. These guys really know their beers as well as their meats, so we thought it would be fun to team up on a tasting with a difference!
As with our previous Super Secret Tasting Pack, this event will be for everyone who orders the Beer & Charcuterie Tasting Event Pack online, and joins us on Instagram Live from 8pm on November 5th! This will be limited to 48 packs in total, so don’t miss out!
What’s in the pack?
We’ve devised four different pairings of charcuterie and beer, each designed to amplify flavours in both the meat and the beer, and give you all some insight into how these tasty flavours are made. Plus, every pack contains two bonus cans each of Tropical Deluxe and House IPA, as well as tasting notes and other goodies.
For the event we’ll be joined by Alfie from Crown & Queue to talk all things meat, whilst Chris and Sean will once again be chattering about the beers.
What are the pairings?
Pocketbook DDH Pale + Hoghton Loin – This juicy and lightly floral hoppy pale ale should go beautifully with the delicate herb and spice flavours in this pork loin cured with Rosemary, Fennel and Horseradish. Get ready for some seriously fruity interplay.
Passing By DDH Red Ale + Lincoln Imp Sausage – A beer making a return since its first brew in the middle of lockdown, Passing By has that piney hop character and chewy red ale flavour to tangle with big flavours. Lincoln Imp sausage is made with garlic, dried fruit, sage and export stout, so expect some tasty fireworks!
Freedom Vortex West Coast IPA + Black Pepper Belly – A recent big favourite of ours here at the brewery, Freedom Vortex’s big citrus notes and delicious malt structure are perfectly suited to the snappy pepper and juniper flavours on this meltingly soft pork belly.
Soft Top Sabro Stout + Martlemass Beef – Big flavours meet big flavours for this one! This dry-cured heritage Beef Silverside is cured with spices and finished with fruit sour beer, which melds wonderfully with the luxurious malt and toast flavours in Soft Top, edged with hoppy notes of tropical fruit and coconut.
We’re also going to use the event as an introduction to future event partners Pastore, a pair of amazing pasta wranglers who have recently joined All Good Beer in Hackney Downs Studios. The plan is to have lots of beery and foodie chat, give away some spot prizes, and generally have a merry time.
