The Australian National Homebrewing Conference 2014 Melbourne Food & Beer Pairing Dinner
Each year since 2008, the ANHC (Australian National Homebrewing Conference) has selected a handful of the most highly acclaimed award winning homebrewers in Australia, and along with the William Angliss Institute, created a series of the most exciting gustatory experiences on a beer lovers calender.
For the 7th annual homebrew and food celebration, we’ve recruited four up-and-coming professional brewers, whose thirst for brewing is so strong that it is so scarcely satiated by producing award winning Victorian craft beer during the working week – they all find themselves brewing at home on the weekends too. Home brewing allows them to utilise ingredients and processes that they might not get a chance to use at work, so we encouraged them to get creative and unleash their geeky inner homebrewer.
This years dinner features a menu designed by two hat Chef Brendan Sheldrick – Head Chef at Neil Perry’s stunning Italian-centric Rosetta Ristorante at Crown Melbourne – who also happens to be a passionate beer drinker and keen homebrewer. Brendan’s menu will be skillfully prepared by the teaching staff and students at Angliss Restaurant, and is a fantastic opportunity to experience the talent and creativity of Melbourne’s current and future top chefs.
Four courses have been designed to pair elegently with beers from Steve “Hendo” Henderson (BrewCult), Simon Haylock (Red Hill), Sam Slaney (Thunder Road) and Ian Morgan (3 Ravens), who will introduce you to their beers throughout the evening. Canapes will be served on arrival with beer courtesy of Boneyard Brewing.
Tickets can be purchased via anhc.com.au and sales close on Friday August 22nd, 2014. For group bookings, dietary requirements (if not submitted with the order) must also be received by Friday August 22nd.
