Nene Valley Brewery Tap Takeover

by | Sep 10, 2015 | Article

Last night the The Three Johns played host to the Nene Valley Brewery Tap Takeover. Having been in operation for two and a half years, Nene Valley Brewery has already won a host of awards, including overall champion beer at the 2014 Peterborough Beer Festival.

With a diverse range of great craft beers to try, all with dynamic branding and fun names, the crowd was also wowed by the stunning beer and cheese combinations our beer sommelier, Philip Harding put together for the night.

Some of the standout pairings of the evening included a gorgeous, creamy Capricorn goats cheese paired with the Australian Pale Ale – notes of subtle floral and tropical fruits to cut through the creaminess – and a bold Stilton paired with the Bible Black Lavish Chocolate Porter. Blue and porter are simply a match made in heaven. The rich malt of the porter balances the zing of the cheese.

Wine is not cheese’s best friend, beer is, and the sooner you realise this, the happier you’ll be.
