Beer and women forum Dea Latis ran its popular ‘Beers with Breakfast’ tasting for the fifth year, this time at the new Drake & Morgan venue at Kings Cross.
Around 30 guests, including brewsters, marketeers, trainers and journalists enjoyed a five course breakfast, with each dish matched to a different beer. Expert tuition was provided by Beer Sommelier Annabel Smith as well as Jenn Merrick, head brewer at Beavertown Brewery and newly-crowned Brewer of the Year 2015; Genevieve Upton, Brewster at Marston’s and Emma Harris of Freedom Brewery.
The beer and breakfast matches were:
- Yoghurt Granola with poached seasonal fruit and brioche
With Lemon Phantom, Beavertown Brewery
- Avocado on rye bread with hummus, lemon + chilli
With Schiehallion Craft Lager, Harvioustoun Brewery
- Eggs Florentine
With Liberty Pilsner, Freedom Brewery
- Smoked salmon with cream cheese on sourdough
With Gentleman’s Wit Witbier, Camden Brewery
- Buttermilk pancakes with bacon + maple syrup
With Shipyard American IPA, Marston’s
The event was the fifth pre-Christmas Beers with Breakfast tasting from Dea Latis, who have also paired beers with cheese, chocolate and tapas. In November this year the group also ran a tasting event for female MPs in the Houses of Parliament.
