Beer of champions is – Goats Milk!
Congratulations to Warwickshire’s Church End Brewery for winning CAMRA’s gold award at the Great British Beer Festival in London. Goat’s Milk is a blend of pale barley, crystal malt oats and aromatic hops, that is the brewery’s best selling beer. Church End sales manager Paul Hamblett said: “We originally brewed and named it for a festival taking place in the Goat pub, and the beer just caught on.”
New Indian eaterie
Fans of The Indian Rasoi street food at Digbeth Dining Club (DDC) will be pleased to hear that the owners have taken over the former site of Adam’s restaurant in Birmingham. The new restaurant and cocktail bar, called Indian Streatery, is due to open on 17 August on Bennett Hill, with lunch and evening menus.
While we are talking about DDC I need to wish them many happy returns! Celebrating their fifth birthday, the team have some exciting plans up their sleeve – including expanding into Nuneaton in September – but before then they are having a party on Friday 18 August.
With events across the Midlands DDC will be celebrating their roots in our original home — Lower Trinity Street, Digbeth where it all started. Lineup for the night includes:
Original Patty Men
Low ‘n’ Slow
Baked In Brick
Bournville Waffle Company
Holy Moly Macaroni
(Tickets are available for the event now at £1.50 with entry on the door £2.50).
