Event Description

It's never too late to get the BBQ on. If you are anything like me then your BBQ gets used regardless of the weather.

Get summer ready & join us and taste the very best wines and beers to enjoy alongside your BBQs next summer.

We'll let the beers and the wines fight it out to see which one wines in this head-to-head tasting.

Who doesn’t love firing up their bbq, dusting off their tongs, and getting grill-ready at the first sign of sun? This is all best done with a glass in hand and we’re here to help guide you through the cluttered red wine shelves and dig out some cracking summer wines!

With all that smoked, charred food – whether meaty or veggie – there are plenty of wines to pair from smoky, tobacco-scented Rioja to spicy, peppery Syrah or you can imagine sipping your way through a smoke-scented Rauchbier or an indulgent stout. 

A mouth-watering selection of 3 wines and 3 beers to pair perfectly with your outdoor summer feasts.

Your evening will include tasting samples of six smoldering hot red wines and 6 beers; tasting portions of cured meats paired with each pairing, full wine, and beer notes & handouts, and a 2-hour interactive presentation, with Q&A, led by our wine tutor.
