Jack Stein and St Austell Brewery to co-host Cornish Arms event

Join Jack Stein and St Austell Brewery’s trainee beer sommelier, Laura Hicks, for a night of food and beer tasting on Thursday 27th February. The event will be hosted at St Austell Brewery’s pub, the Cornish Arms in St Merryn, which has been on lease to the Stein family for over a decade.

The evening will feature tasters of dishes created by Jack Stein and will all be matched with St Austell Brewery’s most-celebrated Cornish beers – as well as a few limited-edition brews from the Small Batch range too.

Throughout the night Jack and Laura will introduce each tasting course with a different, perfectly paired beer. Coupled with Jack’s guidance on the courses, Laura will introduce diners to a broad spectrum of beer styles.

Jack Stein said: “I’m delighted to have developed a series of recipes to match with a variety of Cornish beers - from clean, crisp and refreshing Korev to the big, bold and hoppy taste of Proper Job. I’m really looking forward to co-hosting this event, at my family’s pub, and showing people how they can create the ideal flavour matches for their favourite beers when cooking at home.”

Laura Hicks, St Austell Brewery’s trainee beer sommelier said: “It’s not all about wine when it comes to complementing food. The nuanced flavours in beer have the power to enhance a range of flavours. We’re really excited to be hosting this event, in collaboration with Jack, to give people the opportunity to experience the art of food and beer pairing for themselves.” 

The event starts at 6.30pm. Tickets are £20 and are now available from
