In an event to mark the national celebrations for Beer Day Britain, Dea Latis, is holding a beer and food tasting evening for women at Marston’s Brewery Visitor’s Centre, DE14, on Thursday 15th June from 6.30pm. Guests will join in with the annual ‘Cheers for Beer’ at 7pm.
Guests are set for a fascinating insight into women’s involvement in beer and brewing as well as sampling six different types of hand-held locally produced foods each matched with a different local beer. Beer Sommelier Annabel Smith will host the evening.
Jo Wyke, Marketing Manager for Marston’s said: “We are excited to be hosting this double celebration; inviting women to learn about beers brewed in Burton as well as joining in with Beer Day Britain’s celebration of our national drink with a countrywide ‘Cheers for beer’ at 7pm. She added: “At Marston’s, five of our brewers and over 75% of the brands marketing team are women so we are really behind this event.”
Alongside beers brewed by Marston’s the evening will also feature beers brewed by Burton Bridge Brewery, Freedom Brewery and a couple of surprise guest beers. Dea Latis organiser, Lisa Harlow said: “Burton Upon Trent is famous the world over for brewing beer so it’s time we united Burton’s beer-loving women with those who would like to know more about our national drink.”
The Dea Latis team are keen to point out that it is not a women-only event but clearly want to see women represented in force. Tickets are £20 (including a booking fee) per head and available online at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/from-burton-with-love-tickets-34850717434
