Matthew Curtis and Hop Burns & Black Present THE 2019 BEER MIXTAPE

Come join HB&B’s resident beer writer Matthew Curtis – author of our award-winning Fundamentals column – for a tasting that will encapsulate beer from six of the UK’s most exciting up and coming producers. Something he, for reasons unbeknownst to anyone but himself, has coined his “2019 Beer Mixtape”.

Expect an interactive tasting session delivered in Matt’s typically ebullient style that will hop and skip from IPA to lager to sour to saison – perhaps even with the odd curveball thrown in. Join us for what will certainly be a relaxed, enjoyable, beer-fuelled evening. Tickets are available here.

Braybrooke Keller Lager
Mills Running Beer
Mothership Cardamon & Rose Stout
Tillingham Peaux de Pomme Qvevri Cider

Good Beer Hunting & HB&B present AROUND THE MALTIVERSE: An Exploration of Malted Barley in a Hop Focused World

GOOD BEER HUNTING SAYS: We live in a hop focused beer world. There’s nothing wrong with this of course, at GBH we like our pales and IPAs as much as anyone else. We do worry, however, that some of the other wonderful ingredients which make up our favourite beverage too often get overlooked.

Join Good Beer Hunting’s Matthew Curtis and Claire Bullen for a talk and tasting that will explore four different beer styles that showcase how malt is used in brewing to evoke completely different flavours. This is the third part in a series of tastings that take a closer look at the fundamentals of beer, whether they might be malt, hops, yeasts or even adjuncts. In the Good Beer Hunting tradition we’ll be pouring samples of beer liberally and we’ll also provide a small food pairing to try alongside one of the beers (it won’t be substantial however, and we do recommend eating before you arrive).

Tickets are just £16.50 (plus booking fee) per person—however if you’re a member of the GBH Fervent Few subscriber community you'll get a code for 10% off the ticket price.

The Yeast of our Problems, with Good Beer Hunting

In a world of ever more hop forward beers, are we neglecting to give beer's most eclectic ingredient the kind of attention it deserves?

In the second of our Fundamentals series, we invite you to join Good Beer Hunting’s UK Editor Matthew Curtis and our fabulous food and beer writer Claire Bullen as we taste our way through four beers that derive their key flavours from yeast.

You'll get to enjoy four yeast (and bacteria) driven styles: Brettanomyces fermented Pale Ale, Belgian Tripel, German Weizen Bock and Belgian Lambic/Gueuze, along with a small but mighty food pairing from Claire. 

This event will sell out very quickly so get your skates on. Tickets are just £16.50 (plus booking fee) per person – however if you’re a member of Good Beer Hunting's Fervent Few subscriber community, you'll get a code for 10% off the ticket price.

Come put the yeast into South Yeast London...
