Young’s have teamed up with iconic beer Estrella Damm to bring a taste of Barcelona to Britain with the Estrella Damm Tapas Tasting Evenings.  A series of lively evenings running from September – October, guests can enjoy an innovative five course tapas meal that has been designed especially to match the flavours of Estrella Damm by Young’s expert team of Chefs.

Hosted in the informal and relaxed setting of Young’s Pubs by one of three drinks experts from’The Wine Chap’ team – Tom Harrow, Douglas Blyde and James Wills* – the Estrella Damm Tapas Tasting Evenings feature sharing plates piled high with modern bites like Smoked Mackerel and Beer Bread, Beetroot, Radish and Cashew Nut Salad and Sour Dough, Tortillas and Tomato Chutney.

Over a three month period Tom, Douglas and James tasted over thirty dishes and sipped their way through numerous pints of beer served in varying ways to identify the wide range of flavours that match the smooth, light and citrus flavours of Estrella Damm.

Each dish created by the Young’s team of Chefs will be accompanied by a different pour of Estrella Damm, served at varying temperatures in a selection of glass shapes and sizes. Each has been especially selected to bring out the flavours of each course by The Wine Chap team who, by highlighting the versatility of the beer, hope to challenge any pre-conceptions that beer has a one-dimensional taste.

Throughout the course of the evening guests will also have the opportunity to have a go at pouring the perfect pint of Estrella Damm themselves following a demonstration of the Estrella Damm Crema Pour technique.
