B is for Beer… M is for Moodley’s and a New Year Feast

Well we are filling up fast for our Special Veggie Feast that will held at the Olive Stores in Brenchley. We have a little more space here at this venue so we will be able to accommodate a few more discerning diners but we are also excited  to highlight the beers of Brewing maestro Yudhistra Moodley of Moodley’s Brewery.

We are keen to showcase the beers brewed by this small micro brewery based in Penshurst in a novel and interesting way. When discussing with Yudhistra about his beers he was proud to stress their vegetarian credentials and so it seemed natural to try and match them to a range of vegetarian dishes.

So with some thought we have put together what we hope will be a novel and interesting menu…

The beers we will showcase will be current Moodley’s Beers “Toad Rock Bitter” “Mr Toad’s Tonic” and the amazing Porter like beer called “Winter Solstice”… we will also have two completely new beers that will be brewed and launched at the dinner.

The first is currently called “A No Name Beer” and will be a beer brewed using a mix of two Kentish grown hops, “Organic Whitbread Golding Variety” and “Fuggles” (a wonderful name) This beer we will be served with the Butternut Squash risotto but more important we will be asking diners to give this beer a proper Moodley’s inspired name fitting of the beer. Even if you are unable to make the dinner why not suggest a name and we will put it to the vote on the night and the winning name will win a bottle of the said beer along with a plate of the risotto to go with it! Please go to our competition page to enter your suggestion!

Yudhistra is also planning to brew a second beer for this event and will be using two foriegn hops in this one. One called Saaz a Czech variety then a German variety called Hallatauer. This beer also yet to be named will be served with the Mushroom and Chick Pea Burger.

We will also be using the Autumn Leaf brew as well with the Beer Bread we will be making to serve with main course mixed bean chilli so will be using just about all the range of Yudhistra’s Brews!

So get cracking and book your places at this very unique event.
