The Ultimate Celebrity Beer Tasting… in your home!

We are delighted to be working with Sharp’s Brewery in Cornwall, best known for its flagship beer Doom Bar, and four real characters from the world of football, to bring you a truly exclusive and entertaining evening for your clients and guests in the comfort of their own homes!

The two-hour event will see your guests’ sample six different beers from Sharp’s which we post out in advance, with leading Beer Sommelier, Ed Hughes, giving you the lowdown on each beer. Your chosen football star from the below list, will give their thoughts on each beer, in addition to answering questions from your presenter and from your clients and guests throughout the evening.

Sharp’s Brewery is based in Rock, North Cornwall and has seen a rapid rise to success since its foundation in 1994. The largest brewer of cask beer in the South West, Sharp’s brews a wide range of beers including Doom Bar, which is probably the most successful cask beer of its generation and is currently the UK’s no.1 cask beer brand. Proud of its Cornish home, Sharp’s supports a number of local rugby clubs and coastal environmental charities and initiatives.

Ed Hughes is a leading Beer Sommelier regularly featuring on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen and in 2018 he co-authored Sharp’s first cookbook brimming with more than 60 recipes inspired by the Cornish coast. ‘Just Add Beer’ profiles some of the UK’s top chefs – from award-winning street food chefs to those with Michelin stars to their names and we will include a copy of this book for all of your guests within your beer packs. Ed provides expert beer tastings both at the brewery and with key customers, as well as beer and food matching to audiences at events around the country. Another string to Ed’s bow is judging beer industry competitions, for example the SIBA, World Beer Awards and the European Beer Star in Munich.

This will be a really fun evening for all of your guests, with them tasting and finding out more about some high-quality beer, whilst hearing some hilarious stories from four of sports biggest characters!
