Pair 2017. Welcome.
Five of the capital's most inventive breweries, each matched up with a kick-ass food partner, with a simple brief: to make the best beers and eats possible.
For some time now there’s been a slightly problematic relationship between high-end food and beer. Go into many top restaurants and alongside the Chateauneufs, Rieslings and Dom Perignons will be an apologetic beer list that does nothing to complement the wonderful food dishes it’s offered alongside.
Enough of the bleating - we decided to do something about it. Through fresh ideas, innovation and collaboration, we want beer to take its rightful place at the high table of great cuisine. We may be a way off seeing our favourite brewers on The Fat Duck's drinks list, but the time has come to make inroads.
So - we're taking five of London’s most exciting, experimental breweries, pairing them with five equally brilliant food outlets/suppliers in close proximity, and letting their imaginations run riot.
Each pairing has been given a briefing: to collaborate on a beer recipe which is a break from the norm, challenges conventions, but of course, is first and foremost absolutely delicious. Then, using that beer, create a fantastic food dish. Salivating yet?
On Saturday June 24th, the fantastic new bar and music venue Five Miles, in the heart of vibrant South Tottenham, will host a launch party for all of these creations. There will be two sittings, each for just 100 people, at 1pm and 4pm. The event will be ticket only, costs £30, and this ticket will get you:
- A unique, branded event glass.
- A welcome drink
- A two-thirds pour of each of the five collaboration beers.
- Your choice of any three of the food dishes; the two you don't choose will be available for purchase, if desired.
- Bragging rights for having been at the first ever Pair event!
