St Austell Brewery is teaming up with Jack Stein, chef director of Rick Stein Restaurants, to host an evening of delicious food presented with beer pairings.

The event, which has sold out in previous years, is back at The Cornish Arms, in St Merryn, – one of St Austell Brewery’s tenanted pubs, run by the Rick Stein team.
The event will celebrate Cornish food and beer and so it’s apt that it’s being held on St Piran’s Day, Tuesday, 5th March, from 7pm.
An exclusive five-course menu has been created to complement the St Austell brews. The origins and tasting notes for each beer pairing will be shared on the evening by Laura McKay, the brewery’s marketing and communications director, and a beer sommelier in training.
Laura said: “I’m delighted to be back at the Cornish Arms to co-host this special dinner with Jack. It’s an evening of good food and beer, great conversation, and plenty of insights into the art of food and beer pairing.
“Diners can expect a variety of beer styles on the night, from korev — our crisp and refreshing lager — through to a Belgian-inspired Tripel. Each beer brings out the flavour in one of the five dishes we have in store.”
Jack added: “Having grown up in Cornwall, it’s really exciting to be continuing to work with one of the most successful and well-known brewers in the country.”
Dishes will include Cornish fish stew with fried Coombeshead Farm sourdough, paired with Hicks strong ale, and a rhubarb fool with ginger fairings, paired with a punchy Big Job double IPA.
Limited tickets for the one-off evening are available here.
