Bespoke craft beer events company Hauf&Hauf is launching in Glasgow next month with a four-course craft beer dinner featuring Up Front Brewing.
The dinner, held around a communal table, will take place on 16th February at The Haberdashery, in the West End. It will feature a curated menu that pairs with the beers, along with a craft beer cocktail. Limited tickets are available via Eventbrite.
Hauf&Hauf founders, Adam Currie and Brittany Oat, believe everything is better with beer. Inspired by the classic Scottish term “hauf an a hauf” (a whisky and a half-pint of beer), they are curating tasting events, festivals, and education series that pair craft beer in ways never imagined.
“Having run craft beer events in New York, Paris, and Boston, we were excited to bring experiences to Glasgow while helping to support the local breweries,” said Adam. “We moved back home during the pandemic and noticed that, once things re-opened, there weren’t a lot of beer events to showcase Scotland’s incredible breweries.”
Hauf&Hauf is hoping to bring some favourite events from their time abroad to Glasgow, including a sold-out craft beer cruise they did in Manhattan, and a beer brunch in Boston.
“We’re also planning to run experiential tours to breweries both in and around Glasgow, and further afield,” Adam added. “We like to put a twist on things and allow people to get involved with brewing, try beers that are still in development, and spend quality time with the brewers.”
The February beer dinner is the first in a series of three at The Haberdashery. The next two will be on 23rd March and 20th April, featuring a new menu and other local breweries.
The menu is designed and prepared by chef Lewa Thomas, of Akara Bakery. In addition to each course being complimented by a different pour from Up Front, the evening will begin with a unique craft beer cocktail, featuring gin from Arrochar Alps. Guests will have the opportunity to learn from and chat with the brewer and distiller throughout the night.
“Supporting Scottish breweries has never been more critical,” said Brittany. “It’s been hard to watch the hospitality sector — an industry that I grew up in — struggle so much over the last few years.
“I feel like every week I hear about another brewery or another pub closing. For us, it’s vital that every event we do gives back to the community and helps the breweries.”
