Thornbridge Brewery Saturday Social

We're back at Thornbridge Brewery this coming Saturday 23 July from 12pm-5pm for its Saturday Social at their Riverside Brewery, Buxton Road, Bakewell DE45 1GS. Once a month on Saturday, the lovely folks at Thornbridge hosts an afternoon of beer, music and street food social.

At this Saturday Social, we’ll get our Weber grill on, crack open a few bottles of beers, barbecue some smoked chicken and Indonesian pork belly, and groove to the cool tunes that our Thornbridge barman will be playing.

Brewers Night with Exit 33 Brewing Recap

It’s never easy writing a recap of our BBQ and Brewers Dinners without being too reflective or self-critical. Did we accomplish what we set out to achieve?  Did the food pair well enough with the beers?  Did the food stand up well enough on its own? OMG, WHAT HAVE WE DONE????

This event with Exit 33 Brewing really was a big challenge for us as we stepped away from our comfort zone by developing a bespoke 5-course pairing menu (see below) that we thought would best match the beautiful beers that Pete Roberts produces.  We dabbled in things like smoked and dried baby roma tomatoes, devilled eggs, smoked rainbow trout and pickled watermelon…all in the first course!  And we finished with a chilli pineapple carpaccio with smoked banana ice cream.  From where I was standing (in the kitchen, naturally) I saw a lot of smiling faces, heard some very nice feedback, and few full bellies being rubbed.  Me thinks we done good.

BBQ and Brewers Night with Lost Industry Brewing

BBQ & BREWERS NIGHT 5-COURSE PAIRING MENU WITH LOST INDUSTRY BREWING, 25th MAY (7-9PM)

Each month we team up with one of the best brewery in the region to feature their selection of beers to pair with our carefully crafted menu of smoked meat.  The brewer themselves will be joining in to talk about their story and their beer.  Our Pitmaster Jeffrey Wright will chime in to discuss which beer pairs well with which food and look to dispel some myths about food and drink pairings.  For any beer and/or barbecue enthusiasts, we want to hear your thoughts too. And, of course, we will drink and eat lots of beer and barbecue.
