AN EVENING OF BEER, WHISKY & DISCOVERY
Last Sunday we had a fantastic time with our latest Adventure in Deliciousness. And if you missed our exploration of whisky and beer with the head brewer of Big Smoke Brew Co., you can watch it back below whenever you fancy. You can also download a set-up guide and tasting mat to help you get prepared. Thanks to Nick Blake for bringing the beers and the insights, and as always, thanks to all who joined and asked great questions.
DELVE INTO BEER & WHISKY'S FASCINATING
INTERPLAY OF FLAVOUR
Nick chatted to Compass Box founder John Glaser and whiskymaker James Saxon about their mutual fascination with evolving traditions as they paired three of our malt whiskies with a Big Smoke pilsner, imperial stout and double IPA. Watch the recording to find out how far they think smoke and beer should mix, whether there’s such a thing as too much hops for a pairing, and Nick’s surprising answer to the question of the most important ingredient in beer brewing.
WHAT TO TRY NEXT?
Pick up a brown ale or bitter and see how it lengthens the gingerbread finish of The Spice Tree, or how combining The Story of the Spaniard and a sour tastes like lemon tart as the whisky’s sweetness soothes the citrusy grip of the beer. For The Peat Monster, try a West Coast-style IPA that can punch its weight with the heavy peat. And of course, head over to Big Smoke Brew Co., to explore more of their great range too.
That’s all for now, but scroll to the bottom for a sneak peak at something special we’re cooking up for summer!
Share & Enjoy!
