While I am not really a big fan of Fathers Day as a concept, I would seriously reconsider this opinion if I was given a BBQ and Beer Tasting Session.  I would become an immediate convert and start lobbying parliament for a week long holiday in support of hard-working Dads.

On Father’s Day, Sunday June 19th, we will be offering a free beer to every Dad when they buy a pizza (although let us know before you come so that we have enough beer in stock!). We also have a number of great gifts, but at the top of the list would go a gift voucher for our BBQ and Beer Tasting Evening (to be held on Saturday 16th July from 4pm).  This involves sitting round the wood-fired pizza oven and BBQ cooking 6 different foods under the expert tutelage of Gavin and Jamie, while matching those foods with 6 different beers.  Jamie is a true beer sommelier (as you may have gathered from his Beer of the Week posts) and will not only give you expert knowledge of each beer, but will pair it with the food as it comes off the grill so that you can taste how each beer works with different flavoured food.

This will be a cracking day out for Dads (and if Mum’s are interested, then we will put another together as well – just let us know).

We have gift vouchers available for £25 for the BBQ and Beer Course, but if you want something for Dad for Father’s Day, then we have a great selection of local beers in the shop, as well as gifts such as the Cheese Making Kits.

Details of the food and beers on the day will be announced shortly – as there is some serious product tasting that needs to be done before we get this right.
