geograph-4353192-by-Bill-BoadenThose of you who attended our Around the World Tasting will have had an introduction to the rich brewing tradition of Belgium. At 20:00 on Tuesday 6th March, we will be taking part in a Belgian beer tasting at The Elm Tree, an excellent pub with a Belgian beer specialism on Elm Street.

There is a limit of 12 people and the cost will be in the range £10-£12 for members and £12-£14 otherwise; the exact figure will be confirmed closer to the time. In order to make sure the right amount of beer is available, we will need everyone attending to sign up via this Doodle poll.

Whether you’re well versed in Belgian brewing culture or just interested in getting started and broadening horizons, there should be plenty to enjoy!
