A Newcastle shop is hoping to help non-beer lovers who don’t know their bitters from their IPAs to find the perfect pint for Father’s Day.
mmm… and glug… has enlisted the help of brewers from award-winning Tyne Bank Brewery to host a beer tasting for non-beer lovers event on Saturday, 20 June.
The event, being held in the Grainger Arcade from 12 noon onwards, will hopefully make it easy for local mums, sons and daughters to pick the perfect local beers.
mmm… and glug… owner Simone Clarkin is hoping to not only help out non-beer lovers find the right gift, but also to see new converts to local beers.
She said: “We regularly hold meet the brewer events, but this one will be slightly different as we are aiming it at family members who might not really know what they should buy.
“We will be helping out lots of local shoppers to pick the right beers – and hopefully try a few out themselves.
“Craft beers are becoming more and more popular and great local breweries like Tyne Bank are helping to spread the word of just how good north east beers can be.”
The free tasting (for over 18s only) is being held at mmm… and glug… 10-13 Grainger Arcade, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 5QF from 12 noon on Saturday, 20 June.
The deli and craft beer store will also be tweeting out news of the new limited edition Tyne Bank beers prior to the event to its 18,000 plus followers using @mmm_newcastle
