Guinness Open Gate Brewery Evening

I,a few other bloggers and then some, attended this splendid evening event at the amazing Golden Thread Gallery. Firstly the gallery is a hidden gem, a great space for exhibitions and makeshift pop up launches. 


This was a launch of kinds. It was Guinness showcasing some of their brands before launching in upto 25 pubs around Belfast. These included Original Guinness, Hop House, Rye Pale Ale and Botanical Ale. We were presented with tokens for food and drinks to be “spent” on the night.


To accompany these tipples, local artisan food producers had samples of their wares on offer for us to try. Some produce was made with the tipples whilst the majority were paired with them.


Above was a selection of cheese from the Sperrins (my favourite being the tangy blue cheese). The Donuts were tasty (my face was the pistachio) and the Draynes Ice creamy was creamy and amazing. Below was the brilliant Broughgammon Goat stand serving up goat tacos-extremely moorish but a tad messy!!

For the adventurous/amorous there was wonderful oysters from Mourne Seafood with a choice of Tabasco, shallot in vinegar or plain lemon juice paired with Guinness Draft of course. The sour dough bread and chocolate bread was superb with Abernethy butter. 


Now to go burn it off on the cross trainer!!
