Liverpool ladies love their beer

  We hosted our first ever event in Liverpool, offering a six-course meal with matching beers to an audience of local women – and a handful of men including chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group, Graham Evans MP. The tasting, held at the city’s Old Blind School, was led by award-winning Beer Sommelier Annabel Smith, who guided the audience through six different styles of beer, including brews from two local brewers Mad Hatter and Neptune Brewery. Each beer was accompanied by a complementary food, ranging from cheese and fish to cheesecake and chocolate. Annabel said, “The response from our guests was overwhelmingly positive; non-beer drinkers had their preconceptions about beer overturned as they found at least one beer they enjoyed and will consider drinking in future. Women already drinking beer broadened their repertoire by trying new styles. The beer and food matches served to the women of Liverpool were: Freedom Pilsner with Welsh Rarebit Blue Moon with Smoked Haddock Fishcake with Chorizo (as well as with Terry’s Chocolate Orange) Lagunitas IPA with Tandoori Salmon Neptune …
