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.

And obviously Pete is doing something right at Exit 33 Brewing – his beers were a huge hit that night.  It is no wonder that he has been travelling the nation tirelessly, delivering his beautiful creations, yet thankfully was able to make the long journey back to Sheffield for the event.  And we could not be more grateful – we feel it really is important for our guests to hear about the journey we all went on to create this event and we simply could not have done it without Pete.  So a BIG shout out to you, your team and your amazing beers!

Exit 33 Brewing are a small, independent brewery. For us it’s all about the journey, the discovery, and our attitude to crafting beer that suits some and challenges others. We brew uncompromised beer.  Our beer is hand-made locally in small batches using quality natural ingredients, and is served unfiltered and unpasteurised.

The flavour of our beer originates from traditional brewing ingredients and the skill, care and attention we take. Everything we do is to enhance the flavour and quality of the beer styles we brew. As a small brewery with no shareholders to answer to, we are free to interpret historic styles with unique twists and sometimes even develop new hybrid styles. All our beers are made with traditional ingredients, malted barley, hops, yeast and Yorkshire water. That’s it, beer with nothing taken out.

We’re enjoying the journey and hope you can join us for part of the way, or at least a pint or two.
