Ales & Cheese Tasting

Minimum number 20 participants

Fun, humorous and highly informative our interactive online tasting event showcases some of the finest British cheese and matching ales.


Using a combination of skill development, competition and humour, your host leads guests on a journey around London's new real ale breweries, whose output is putting a level of sophistication into beer, which was hitherto unknown.

In the nineteen years that both Francis and Richard have staged beer tasting events, they have (diligently, they say) kept up with the rapid development of the real ale movement. They visit all UK breweries from whom they buy, and have worked at a couple to further their

knowledge! Francis and Richard between them have won awards, are published and are both experts in both International Wines, Ales and Cheese. They have hosted over 3000 tastings.  During the event you will learn essential cheese and drink tips, covering aspects of buying, storage and service as well as food and drink matching.

There will be time for a Q&A plus some quick-fire quizzes with the chance to win prizes!!


We’ll send out a Zoom meeting link in advance (or other platform, if required).  Once everybody has logged in, your host will kick off the master class. The duration of the event is approximately 90 minutes.

In advance of your virtual class, we’ll send out your tasting boxes and a meeting invitation and link to the online platform.

Your host for the event is an inspirational presenter with a fountain of knowledge about fine wines, cheese, beer and whisky. He is a staunch supporter of British Artisan Cheeses as well as being a cheesemaker.
