This January Total Ales is teaming up with purveyors of fine barbecued meats Red's True Barbecue and Leeds brewery Legitimate Industries for a night of meat, bourbon and, of course, beer. Matt will be on hand to host the London leg of the "Holy Trinity Pitmaster Experience" at Red's Shoreditch restaurant on Thursday the 26th of January. Matt will also be picking out a "surprise" beer to pair with the third course. It could well be something from our 2016 Golden Pint Awards - of course the only way to find out is to come along and see for yourself.
Tickets for the four course beer, meat and bourbon extravaganza are an eye-wateringly good value £35 a head and can be picked up here: http://events.eventzilla.net/e/holy-trinity-pitmaster-experience-shoreditch-2138897449
Here's the full menu and what Red's have to say about what you can expect from the night:
Need an excuse to get out the house and banish the January Blues with something a little different? Feast your eyes on the Holy Trinity Pitmaster Experience.
We’ve teamed up with Leeds microbrewery, Legitimate Industries, Bulleit Bourbon and a collection of local breweries/beer writers to bring you a four course-feasting menu, paired with unreleased small batch beers and a unique bourbon barrel-aged stout.
Red’s founders, Legitimate Industries head brewer Matt Howgate and a special guest will be on hand to introduce each course and guide you through the flavour matching.
