Councillors and local food producers were among the guests as Freedom Brewery, an award winning English brewery in Abbots Bromley, teamed up with Will Boucher-Giles and Alex Pomeroy from The Candle Room at The Crown, Elford, to create the menu.

Dishes included chilli mussels in beer, beer bread, beer battered fish and chips, beef & stout pie and chicken & stout pie. Each dish was created with, or specifically matched to, one of Freedom’s four award-winning lagers or stout, each made with the finest English ingredients.

Ed Mayman, managing director at Freedom Brewery, said: ““At Freedom Brewery we use the highest quality ingredients and no additives to ensure our range is brimming with flavour and this makes it perfect for food matching, as an alternative to wines and real ales.

“We worked with the team at The Candle Room at The Crown to create a series of specially prepared dishes and this was a chance for some local people to try some of those dishes.

“We’ve seen a massive increase in local pubs matching their beer offering to dishes on their menu including specially selected local produce for all courses. It was fantastic to see so many people there trying the combinations.”
