Bring the complementary worlds of sports and brewing into the comfort of you and your vip guests’ homes with this superb Sporting Celebrity Beer Tasting online event.
This event is brought to you in partnership with Sharp’s Brewery, based in Rock, Cornwall, the legendary brewer behind their famous Doom Bar, the UK’s No.1 cask ale.
This is a great way to experience corporate hospitality with a personal touch. As well as being hosted by a leading presenter, this event features Sharp’s leading beer sommelier Ed Hughes, whose passion for beer flows in part from his experience of Belgium’s proud beer culture.
He is a firm believer that beer can be a genuine alternative to wine in terms of its richness of variety and ability to be paired with foods. He is a regular on the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen, and co-author of cookbook Just Add Beer, an intriguing beer and food matching cookbook produced by Sharps’ Brewery.
