Charity beer tasting event (a rare plug)

Christine Cryne of CAMRA fame is hosting a beer tasting for children’s charity Brainwave. It’s in London at the end of November. Details below.

The children’s charity, Brainwave, is arranging an exclusive beer tasting at the Farmers’ Club on 30 November, where people can find out a little more about the complex world of beer, where the flavours come from and a bit of the history of beer.  So not only can you come for an entertaining and different evening but help a charity too. The Famers’ Club was founded in 1842 and is a private members’ club not usually open to the public at 3 Whitehall Court, London SW1A 2EL; nearest tube: Embankment.

The tasting is being undertaken by Christine Cryne, who chaired CAMRA’s 2010 Champion of Britain and is a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers.

Tickets are only £28, including a buffet. The doors open from 6pm with an introductory drink with the tasting starting at 6.30pm.

The event is being supported by Greene King and Fuller’s breweries and will feature on of their beers plus others from small craft breweries from around the country.
