I’m really excited to be hosting this event to kick of a predictably busy London Beer City. I’ve been working closely with Omar the chef at the Wall SE1 restaurant in House of Vans to pair this Spanish inspired menu with my favourite Californian brewery, the legendary Sierra Nevada.
We’ll be using their signature hop forward beers as well as their Germanic pilsner and modern classic, American Porter while sharing some classic Spanish food and talking about how and why these work so well together.
After dinner we’ve even got a showing of the mumble-core film Drinking Buddies that is set in an American craft brewery.
DATE: 5th August

First course is slow-cooked lamb chops with Spanish omelette and fried onions accompanied by Hop Hunter IPA.
Followed by a paella with a side of cured cheese, which will surprise you with how well it works with the Pale Ale!
Next up we’ll be pairing Nooner Pilsner with pan-fried garlic prawns, as well as calamari with a side of padron peppers.
Our final treat is then churros with a dark chocolate sauce, which will send your mouth wild accompanied with the award winning Porter.
