What accessorises a dapper men’s outfit better than a fine bottle of beer? We love a pint of ale here at Slaters, so it is no surprise that we wanted to celebrate National Beer Day 2017 in style.
To kick things off, we asked our friends at Revl Events, the fresh new app that brings all the events from around the UK to one place, on your phone, to tell us the best boozy events on near our most popular Slaters stores, and here’s what you need to know!
Glasgow – Painting and Pints – 16th June
Edinburgh – Old Town Walking Tour by Scottish Beer Tours – 15th June
Liverpool – Craft Beer Expo – 15th – 18th June
Leeds – Talking Histories – Public Houses of Leeds – 15th June
Now we may be fashion experts here at Slaters HQ, but we’re no beer connoisseurs, so we turned to Gill Sherwin, Co-Founder of Best of British Beer, to give us an insight in to ‘what makes a great British beer?’
“For me, the sign of a great British Beer is one that you want to have another of, it tantalises your taste buds rather than overwhelms them. So, not too strong, not too complicated, just a very well balanced beer with lots of exotic fruity flavours. I think British brewers are very good at using traditional methods but exciting ingredients such as intensely fruity New World hops and it’s this desire to be experimental whilst being true to their roots that has created some of our best beers.”
Now to the part you’ve all been waiting for, the giveaway. After the amazing response on our BBQ giveaway, we decided it was only right to celebrate another national day with yet again, another giant prize hamper.
The drinks are on us… IT’S COMPETITION TIME!!
This time we’ve partnered up with some of the best beer brands out there to bring to you (over 18’s only), a hamper of beers and ales from all corners of the country.
