Beer vs. Wine Food Pairing

Oct 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm  —  Oct 7, 2017 @ 11:00pm


Forget Foreman vs. Ali, this is the ultimate Rumble in the Jungle (well, Forest of Dean…) our Beer vs. Wine Food Pairing Dining Experience!

The ultimate clash of the titans, our exclusive dining evening on Saturday October 7th will see these two beloved tipples go head to head to see which is crowned the King of Kings when it comes to food pairing. Hosted in our fantastic new Hop Barn, you’ll be served a three-course dinner expertly prepared by the talented Barney at Infamous Catering. Each course will be served alongside a specially-selected wine from James at Waistcoat Wines and an accompanying beer, chosen by our very own Paul Williamson. They’ll both be on hand to talk you through their chosen tipple, talking you through the flavours and exactly why they’ve selected each to accompany your meal.

It’s then up to you to enjoy sampling both as you tuck into your delicious dinner, then vote for which drink you feel complemented your meal the best at the end of each course. At the end of the evening, the winner will be revealed, allowing us to answer the age-old question of whether wine or beer is the ultimate dinner companion.

Tickets cost £40pp including three course meal, wine and beer accompaniments. Event runs from 7 – 11pm. To book your space, email [email protected]

Take the A40 from Ross-on-Wye towards Gloucester. Holly Bush Farm is 8 miles from Ross. We are approx. 1.5 miles after passing the Farmers Boy pub on the left and Nags Head on the right. Keep on the A40 (ignore sign to Longhope on the right). After about a mile you will see a turning to May Hill and Clifford Mesne on the left. Keep on the A40 and the farm is approx. 100m further on the right. The driveway shares an entrance with a house called Stratville which faces the road. (A detached red brick and cream house) There is a gate a short way along the drive. Go through the gate and up the drive to the farm. The brewery is on the left of the barns at the top of the hill.
