The Food and Drink Events Company and I Choose Birmingham are teaming up to promote fantastic local beverage producers at the Local Drinks Market this June. Quaffable goodies will come from within 50 miles of the city.
Hand-picked businesses will flock to The Bond Co on Saturday 25th to shake, pour and showcase their wares to the discerning drinkers of Birmingham.
Visitors will be able to sample vodka, gin, ale and more. From established Birmingham favourites such as Langley’s Gin and Two Towers Brewery, plus Fixed Wheel Brewery, Twisted Barrel Ale, Indian Brewing Company, Shakespeare Distillary, Burleighs Gin, Cotswolds Distillary (for whisky, sherry and more)to new and boutique offerings from Jelley Distillaries, Sacre Bleue, and Cuffufle Preserves, and 40 St Paul’s, there is something for everyone to sip and enjoy.
As well as delicious drinks, the festival will offer attendees a unique day out. The award-winning Low ‘N’ Slow and The English Indian (who will be serving up their fantastic twist on fish’n’chips) will be on hand to slay visitors hunger throughout the event.
Guests will also be able to enjoy the sounds of Glastonbury via local turntable superstar Tom Mason, who will be soundtracking the day with hits from this year’s festival.
Worried about missing the big match? The football will be shown in it’s own room at the festival, so sports fans can sip on something delicious whilst catching all the action of the Euro’s live.
A number of brand new masterclasses are also on offer. Fancy a taste of the city’s most unique restaurant? The Wilderness will be serving up a feast for the senses with three matched drinks and dishes for just £18. If cocktails are more your thing, the award-winning James Bowker from The Edgbaston is joining the event to host a special session in “Low Octane Cocktails”, perfect for the summer.
If you think your tastebuds are up to it, put them to the test with our “Supermarket Vs. Craft” gin session, led by Birmingham’s own Gintleman, Carl Hawkins. Taste through a selection of boutique and supermarket own brand gins and see which is your favourite!
This brand new event is a first for the city. Drink without guilt by supporting local businesses and having a big day out!
