Bishopston Supper Club will be joining forces with Bristol Beer Factory next month for a weekend of beer matching dinners hosted by head brewer Chris Kay. Chef Danielle Coombs promises that “as ever, I’ll be creating simple, classic dishes using local and seasonal ingredients, and serving it all up in my front room, the only difference in this case is that a specially selected artisan beer will be served to taste with each course rather than the usual BYO policy”.
Chris will be showcasing a range of beer styles, some made in Bristol, some from further afield, but all from small, independent producers. He will be on hand on the night to tell diners about each one, and to answer any beer-related questions you may.
“This guy knows his beer,” adds Danielle. “We’re very excited about this event and hope that if you’re interested in real ale and/or beer and food matching you’ll not want to miss out.”
The two evenings take place on Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29.
The number of places is limited and a deposit of £15 per person needs to be paid to Grape & Grind on the Gloucester Road in advance, the remaining £30 to be paid in cash on the night.
Contact Darren at Grape & Grind to book your place. Telephone 0117 924 8718, email firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the shop. For more information, contact Danielle via Twitter, @BishosptonSC, email email@example.com or visit www.restingchef.wordpress.com.
