Is Sharp’s head brewer Stuart Howe’s bark worse than his bite? And why is he Rick Stein’s favourite beer maker?
Find out the answers to these and more questions when Stuart comes to town with a selection of his favourite beers from the Cornish coast.
lovebeer@borough is playing host to Sharp’s head brewer Stuart Howe on May 9, to personally introduce his very special brews.
On show will be some never before casked and rarely seen beers – as well as all the Sharp’s favourites like Cornish Coaster, Doombar and Special.
The more esoteric offerings will include:
• Chalky’s Bark (exclusively in cask) – a newly-launched ginger-flavoured beer & deliciously refreshing at just 4%
• St Enodoc - an 8.5% Belgian-style beer that has been conditioned for 11 months
• The simply named 4 – an 11% barley wine-style beer that’s a natural match for blue cheese
Commenting on the event Howe says: “As a London lad it’s nice to bring my beers home, so to speak, and I’m looking forward to sharing them with London-based beer lovers and those from further afield.
“Our range is designed to cover everyone’s tastes, from the simple refreshment of Cornish Coaster to the food-matching capabilities of Chalky’s Bite through to the sip and savour nature of the St Enodoc - I know everyone will leave having found a new favourite.”
Tasting session times are noon & 3pm - tickets cost £15 and the venue (as ever) is lovebeer@borough, above the Rake, 14 Winchester Walk, London, SE1 9AG or email: email@example.com to reserve.
Look forward to seeing you then!
