7.00pm, 25th January 2016, The Duke’s Head, 16 Highgate High Street, London N6 5JG.
Following a sold out year of events in 2015, award-winning North London pub The Duke’s Head Highgate and beer expert in residence, Total Ales own Matthew Curtis return with a Burns' Night extravaganza: Pleading to the Duke of Alcohol.
As part of their January kitchen residency at The Duke’s Head, Scottish street food legends Deeney’s will be whipping up a modern classic four course Burns’ Night menu. Not only has award-winning beer writer Curtis matched each dish to a beer but he has also chosen a complimentary whisky, as is befitting of such an occasion. As each dish is served, Curtis will lead a tutored tasting, explaining why he thinks each drink benefits each dish. There will of course be plenty of The Bard's wonderful verse read on the night, including the irrefutable address to the haggis.
Curtis and the team at the two-times Timeout Highgate pub of the year have form in producing one of a kind, energetic events that often continue into the small hours of the evening – Pleading to the Duke of Alcohol looks to ensure this trend will continue. Tickets are extremely limited and already selling fast, we suggest that you don’t delay if you don’t want to miss out on the best Burn’s Night party in town.
