No fine-dining experience would be complete without a chocolate course and to end the evening off, a verrine of rich Bavarian chocolate and cherry layered Gateau was served with a duo of stouts: Castle Milk Stout and Castle Milk Stout Chocolate Infused.

The gourmet menu was well received because it stimulated much discussion about what makes the beer great and how the food paired, can help elevate the experience,” said Tshepo Tloubatla, Beer Culture Manager for SAB.

It was clear to see how adaptable and versatile beer is when it comes to matching with food, above all the insights and information that the guests picked up on the night can be applied at home around the dinner table.

SAB World of Beer hosts a monthly food and beer pairing lunch on Saturdays.

Each pairing includes six SAB beers and a five-course meal.

Venue: SAB World of Beer, 15 Helen Joseph Street (formerly President Street), Newtown, Johannesburg
