Bishopston Supper Club/Bristol Beer Factory Dinner: September 28th/29th

Spread the love


Join Danielle Coombs of the Bishopston Supper Club and Chris Kay, head brewer at Bristol Beer Factory for a weekend of beer matching dinners in September.

For anyone who has never attended one of Danielle’s suppers before please check out the Bishopston Supper Club page (link here) to see how it all works, there are also photos and reviews to check out. As ever, she will be creating simple, classic dishes using local and seasonal ingredients, and serving it all up ‘family-style’ in her front room, the only difference in this case is that a specially selected artisan beer will be served to taste with each course (rather than the usual BYO policy).

Chris will be showcasing a range of beer styles, some made here in Bristol, some further afield, but all from small, independent producers. He’ll be on hand on the night to tell you about each one, and to answer any beer-related questions you may have. This guy knows his beer! The pair hope that if you’re interested in real ale and/or beer and food matching you’ll not want to miss out!

The number of places is limited and, on this occasion, a deposit of £15 per person will need to be paid to Grape & Grind on Gloucester Road, in advance, the remaining £30 to be paid, in cash, on the night. Don’t forget to specify which night you’d like to attend when booking.

The menu for Friday 28th & Saturday 29th September, including the beer matches, is as follows:


Aperitif & nibbles on arrival: Deus – vegetables in beer tempura

Cantillon Kriek Lambic – Pork rillette, beer bread and chutney

Bristol Beer Factory Hefe – Mussels cooked in wheat beer, chips

Orval – Beer-braised rabbit with prunes, mustard mash and greens

Hop-infused vodka granita

Cheeseboard: Southville Hop – Montgomery Cheddar, Harvest Ale – Stichelton, Hefe – Dorstone

Imperial stout aged in Glenlivet cask – Chocolate pot, honeycomb, espresso ice cream

The dinner will start around 7.30pm and finish at around 11pm.

Danielle is happy to provide menu alternatives for vegetarians, or those with specific dietary requirements, please make her aware when booking!
