Moor Beer Company Tutored Beer Tasting at Mason & Company
Thu 30 March 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
Join the pioneering Moor Beer for their London 10th Birthday Party here at Mason & Company as we host this ace Bristol brewery for our latest 'Meet The Brewer' and Tutored Tasting event.
This tasting event is limited to 20 people, and runs before the Moor Beer Co Tap Takeover event. You will taste 5 of their beers (served in 1/3 pint measures) and learn about the history of this pioneering brewery.
Moor Beer Co champion what they call Modern Real Ale, brewing flavour-forward, often highly hopped, beers using traditional british secondary fermentation. They refuse to use finings in their beers, meaning that all their beers are vegan friendly, and naturally hazy.
Moor Beer was reborn in 2007 when Californian Justin Hawke purchased the defunct business and created what has become one of the world’s top rated breweries. Named from the Levels and Moors area of Somerset where the brewery originated, Moor Beer moved to central Bristol behind Temple Meads Rail Station in 2014 where it now showcases a Tap Room, shop and tours.
Their inspiration comes from living around the world and working with different beer styles and techniques. They take the German, naturally hazy philosophy, combine it with the American flavour-forward approach to brewing and the British secondary refermentation tradition to create what they call Modern Real Ale.
Beer is about flavour, drinkability and enjoyment. Stemming from their California roots, Moor's beers are full flavoured, frequently hop-forward, but always balanced and drinkable. This comes from their use of British floor malted barley from one of the last remaining floor maltings in the UK, Tucker's Malthings of Devon, their use of select hops from around the world and a laser focus on quality at their in-house laboratory.
It’s earned them stacks of international awards, a wide collection of top ratings and they’re the first to be accredited by CAMRA for cask, keg, bottle and can.
Furthermore, Moor Beer kicked off the unfined beer movement in the UK, firmly believing that adding isinglass finings (a by-product of the Sturgeon fish) has a negative impact on beer quality.
