Natural Wine and Sour Beer - Lovebucket 309 K'Rd

Join Natural wine expert and sommelier Megan Abbott- Walker and Beertique's beer guru Brendan Amos for an exploration of these edgy styles from the wine and beer world.

Depending on who you ask Natural Wine is either a new phenomenon or simply a return to pre industrial wine making techniques. Eschewing interventionist practices from the vineyard to the wine making process and abuzz with terms like biodynamic, organic, unfined and unfiltered the natural wine world does things differently. Meg will curate a local and international selection showing the range and diversity of what’s on offer, cloudy and fizzy Sauvignon Blanc anyone? Perhaps skin contact South African Chenin Blanc, wild yeast strains and flavor sensations are certainly guaranteed.

Brendan Amos will curate a line-up of mouth puckering sour beers to include the latest vintage of Hallertau's Funkonnay – an iconic sour beer that has spent up to two years in local Chardonnay barrels. Experience beers from the UK’s Wild Beer Co and some Belgian lambic originals. Brendan will walk you through fermentation, barrel aging, blending, wild yeast strains and more.

Each round of beer and wine will be expertly matched with an artisanal cheese selected by Sabato’s cheese evangelist Calum ‘Curd Nerd’ Hodgson.

4 Natural Wines x 4 Sour Beer x 4 Cheeses.
