Tips for organising a beer tastingHow to throw the perfect tasting
Your friends are coming over: so why not organise a beer tasting? You could always invite an expert over, but why bother when you can create your own? Here are some of our top tips for organising a hassle-free tasting session.
It’s hard to make choices- there are so many beers out there. Which beers should you go for? Make sure you choose a theme beforehand, as that’ll give you a good foundation. At Beerwulf, we’ve put together a package of twelve different styles of exclusively British beer.
You’ll find beers including the Peckham Pils from Brick Brewery, for example. This is a Pils, a light and supple beer to start off with. You could move on to a Thornbridge Am:Pm, followed by a Siren Calypso. This is a sour beer and will clean the palate. Later on you might enjoy the hoppy Bullfinch Wolf American Pale Ale. For the last rounds, try two different coffee minded beers. First the Alphabet Flat White, an interesting white stout. Finish with Common Grounds from Magic Rock. This is a coffee Porter, a dark beer with an intensive coffee flavour- a superb beer to end the night and maybe enjoy it a bit longer.
You can also choose six beers of the same style, in which you taste six different Tripels, for example. Learning to distinguish the different flavours within one style can be a highly instructive experience.
The beer tasting package is a godsend for amateurs as well as more experienced beer lovers and gives a good overview of the British beer scene.
