Foraged Food & Beer Matching Night with Woodman’s Wild Ale & Barnaby’s Brewhouse
28th September 7pm
Stuart Woodman has been teaching foraging & wild cookery professionally for the past five years and his sold out wild booze workshops at Port Eliot Festival culminated in launching his own wild-microbrewery, Woodman’s Wild Ale, last year.
Stuart is equally at home cooking over an open fire, hosting wild food pop-ups in restaurants or woodland banquets. We are delighted to have Stu roaming our fields, poking around in our hedges & assisting us to create a wonderful night of Wild Food at The Riverford Field Kitchen.
We have teamed Woodman’s Wild Ales with local brewers Barnaby’s Brewhouse to produce two special beers for our supper. Barnaby’s Brewhouse are based at our neighbours on Hole Farm and are producing outstanding organic beers from Riverford spring water.
Stuart & Barnaby are collaborating on two foraged beers for this special night: Pineapple Weed Pale Ale & Hogweed Helles. There will also be other beers from their range to purchase on the night or take home.
