Beer Tasting

Beer tasting is a fun event, that can also be educational and rewarding. It is also a great way to be introduced to various kinds and brands of beer, especially if you have guests who are not beer- drinkers. This is a great way to introduce them to beer. They can take a sip from each kind, and hopefully by the end of the activity, they would have found a beer that they like.

With beer appreciation as the main goal, you can take your time to evaluate each style and brand. Here are some things you want to look at during your beer tasting event:

  • Appearance. Take note of the head's color and whether it is thin or dense. Note the beer's color and consistency. Check also if it is clear or cloudy.
  • Aroma. Gently swirl the beer in your glass to get the aroma out. Note if it smells more of malt or hops. Note if its fruity or spicy.
  • First Sip. Try not to swallow your first sip right away. Note the sensation in your mouth. Note the immediate taste, the mouth feel and the consistency. Breathe out and let the flavors out.

As an additional tip, beer tasting should not be done while eating, or soon after a meal. The tastes from the food can greatly affect the taste of the beer. It is also important to cleanse your palate in between beers.

Beer Tasting

Here at Wine-Works we are fortunate to have enjoyed much of our careers in the London licensed trade, and therefore are just as acquainted with beer as wine! We have therefore developed a special beer tasting experience suitable as a different and entertaining corporate event idea or for a private beer tasting party. Our beer tasting includes twelve different beers to try in generous measures, divided into three or four different styles to your preference. Every beer tasting, London based or anywhere in England & Wales, therefore, is designed bespoke to each booking. Styles can include lagers, real ales, seasonal brews, flavoured beers, milds and porters to name a few. Ciders can also be included if desired. In 2012 we broke new ground with a pioneering corporate beer tasting experience, by providing a range of real ales on draught in a London office for an important client networking evening. The group is divided into teams of four, who then compete in a fun interactive quiz while working their way through the beer tasting, picking up fascinating facts about brewing and different beer styles along the way from our beer tasting expert. Quiz rounds include a caption competition, quick fire quiz round and boutique beer anagram challenge! Our beer tasting events provide an amazing opportunity to enjoy a beer festival experience whilst drinking in relative moderation! Fees start from £25pp based on a minimum of 12 guests.
