Beer and women forum Dea Latis took its popular ‘Beers with Breakfast’ tasting to Norwich City of Ale last month, hosting a female-only tasting session at the Plasterer’s Arms in the city.
Guests enjoyed six breakfast foods, each matched to a different ale, with expert tuition from Beer Sommelier Annabel Smith, while Belinda Jennings of Adnams presented her City of Ale Saison, brewed especially for the festival. All beers served with breakfast at the Plasterer’s were brewed by women, as part of the pub’s Fem.Ale event.
Baked Eggs with Roast Tomatoes with Brewsters Helles 4% ABV
Smoked salmon on Mandarin Salad with Adnams Saison 6.3%
Sausages cooked in marmalade with Buntingford Twitchell 3.8%
Bacon & herb sandwich on rye bread with Adnams Rye IPA 5.0%
Beer batter pancakes and maple syrup with Oldershaw Miss Red 4.4%
Chocolate Stout cake with Brentwood Smoked Porter 5.4%
The event was the third Beers with Breakfast tasting from Dea Latis, who have also paired beers with cheese, chocolate and tapas. Last September the group also ran a tasting event for female MPs in the Houses of Parliament.
