Good Beer Hunting + Hop Burns & Black Present:

The Yeast of our Problems
What would beer look like if yeast had its moment?

Date: Thursday October 26th
Time: 7.30 – 10pm
Location: Hop Burns & Black, 38 East Dulwich Road, London SE22 9AX
Tickets: £16.50pp (plus booking fee) – 10% discount available to members of the Fervent Few. 

At the recent Beavertown Extravaganza we asked the question: “what would yeast look like if it had its moment?” In a world of ever more hop forward beers, are we neglecting to give beers most eclectic ingredient the kind of attention it deserves?

Join Good Beer Hunting’s UK Editor Matthew Curtis and food & beer writer Claire Bullen as we taste our way through four beers that derive their key flavours from yeast. This is the second a series of tastings that take a closer look at the fundamentals of beer, whether they might be malt, hops, yeasts or even adjuncts. In the Good Beer Hunting tradition we’ll be pouring samples of beer liberally and we’ll also provide a small food pairing to try alongside on of the beers (it won’t be substantial however, and we do recommend eating before you arrive.)

We’ll be tasting through the following four yeast (and bacteria) driven styles:

Brettanomyces fermented Pale Ale
Belgian Tripel
German Weizen Bock
Belgian Lambic/Gueuze

Tickets are just £16.50 (plus booking fee) per person – however if you’re a member of our Fervent Few subscriber community we’ll give you a code for 10% off the ticket price. We look forward to sharing a few excellent yeast-driven beers with you down at Hop Burns & Black soon!
