Beer Exposed, a new beer event, will showcase more than 100 beers and show how it is as good a partner to food as wine

A new beer event has been launched in a bid to showcase new types and demonstrate how the drink can stand up to wine as a match to food.

Beer Exposed will open for the first time at the Business Design Centre in London on September 25 and will include tutored beer and food tastings and talks from beer experts including Roger Protz, Ben McFarland and Melissa Cole, who will present “ladies only” tutorials.


More than 100 beers from 80 breweries will be available to taste at the event, such as singer Tony Hadley’s beers from Suffolk’s Red Rat Craft Brewery and those from the acclaimed Brooklyn Brewery.


Many of the more unusual varieties on taste include smoked beer, chocolate and
coffee porters and beer brewed with Champagne yeast.


Event co-founder Des Mulcahy said: “We have persuaded some of the world’s most unusual beers to come to London. Creating such an expansive offering has been a challenge, and we are really excited to see this unique collection. The heritage of beer is part of a nation’s great history. People often experience a new beer after visiting a new country, and flavours, food and holidays are fondly fixed in their memory. Everyone has their favourite, so we’re looking forward to some healthy debate too, as the merits of the best beers are compared by visitors and experts alike.”


The event will run from September 25 to 27. Tickets range from £14 to £20 and include interactive beer & food tutored tastings, expert-accompanied beer walks, and more. Visit for more details.
