St Austell Brewery’s trade marketing manager is to stage a night of beer and cheese tastings at the Cornish Pirates’ stadium in Penzance.
Cornwall’s first beer sommelier, Marc Bishop, will have a line-up of beers including Tribute, and limited-edition brews from St Austell’s Small Batch range.
Marc said: “Beer is hugely exciting to pair with food. There’s such a broad spectrum of possible flavours. So when it comes to cheese, the nuanced flavours in beer can be suitably complemented or contrasted to so many varieties.
“For example, stouts and blue cheeses are just the perfect combination. The creaminess and slight saltiness of the cheese goes so well with the sweetness of the stout. The combinations are endless — and very tasty!”
• The event starts at 7pm on Friday, March 20. Tickets are priced at £5 and are available to purchase from https://www.
