The Brewery Tasting Experience Blog

When I think of Summer I think blue skies, colourful flowers and tropical fruit- If you put all three together it makes for a fabulous Summer Party Theme and The Brewery have definitely  got it just right! 
 
We were greeted with a delicious gin cocktail on arrival and continued through to a marquee of paradise. Unusual flowers were dotted around with a beach hut located in the very middle, you felt like you were on holiday. 
 
To say the food was delicious is the understatement of the year! The tasting menu consisted of light and fresh ingredients that certainly took our taste buds on a journey.
 
Written by our lovely “Elena”-  on 11/08/16

Not only was the food presented in interesting ways for example, Cheese Snacks that are identical to cigars in The Brewery’s very own cigar box, but the incorporation of unusual flavours gave the menu a twist. Who wouldn’t want to try Cheddar Cheese Ice Cream!?
 
Providing each guest with the opportunity to choose their own desert and customize it with a selection of sauces was also a lovely touch. It provided a sense of nostalgia- just like choosing your favourite ice cream while on holiday as a child. 
 
For parties of 60 or more the Brewery’s marquee is a the perfect option for Summer Parties- the Inspirational Venue Team are definitely excited to find out the theme for Summer 2017! 
 
Thank you for having us and we look forward to booking our lovely clients into the venue with complete confidence!
