Craft beer giants Innis & Gunn hosted a dinner in Mark’s Kitchen Library at The Tramshed, an intimate room in a huge space with food by Mark Hix.
Innis & Gunn’s founder, Dougal Sharp, talked us through the beers we were drinking while one of the chefs was at hand to talk about the food.
The food was rustic and masculine but also well matched to the drinks. The beers were woven into the cooking process and also in the cocktail we had as an aperitif. And the kitchen table set up was ideal for the chef to take centre place.
After the dinner, I sat down with Sharp to record a podcast, which you can find over at Amateur Wine.
