And so project Burgher Burger Beer continues in its quest to find the perfect beer to go with the perfect burger. So what have Harviestoun got micro-brewing for us this month?
We are excited to announce that they're offering up not one, but TWO beers this time (hence the rather complicated blog post title). Each is a version of a Traditional Ale. Harviestoun say there are two reasons for this:
- Like the burger, traditional brown ales have been around in various guises for a long time. And like the burger, it's got a long history as something that pleases the masses (very much indeed), so they think brown ale and a burger are a match made in beer heaven.
- The other reason is personal. Over the past 30 years, Harviestoun have very much specialised in making light, hoppy beers but they feel the time has come to flex their beer-y muscles and break out of this mould.
So after six weeks of hard brewing, Harviestoun want to hear what you think about their latest Burgher Burger Beer offering. Are they worthy to stand alongside the ulitmate burger? We obviously think they’re both excellent, but our opinions are meaningless compared to yours. We'll have some tasting notes on the table so that you can ruminate while you masticate, and we'll email you a survey the following day.* If you fill out the survey, you'll be entered in a draw to win a case of beer from Harviestoun's core range. Rumour has it that two people won cases of beer last month.
Oh! One more thing… just in case you are wondering who brewed these different beers: one of them was made by Stuart (Harviestoun's head brewer of 16 years) and one of them by Christa (one of his young protégés)… so they’ll be waiting with bated breath to hear the outcome!
