A Newcastle shop is hoping to help Father's Day shoppers who don’t know their bitters from their IPAs to find the perfect pint


mmm… and glug… has enlisted the help of Blaydon-based Firebrick Brewery to host a beer tasting for non-beer lovers on Saturday, 17 June.


The free event, being held in the Grainger Arcade, Grainger Market from 12 noon onwards, will hopefully make it easy for local mums, sons and daughters (aged 18 and over) to pick the perfect local beers. 


Firebrick will be tasting some of their most popular beers, including their recently launched 'Wey-Aye PA' pale ale and ‘Toon Broon' brown ale.


mmm… and glug… owner Simone Clarkin is hoping to not only help out non-beer lovers find the right Father's Day gift, but also to see new converts to local beers.


She said: “We regularly hold meet the brewer events, but this one will be slightly different as we are aiming it at family members who might not really know what they should buy. 


“We will be helping out lots of local shoppers to pick the right beers – and hopefully try a few out themselves. 


“Craft beers are becoming more and more popular and great local breweries like Firebrick are helping to spread the word of just how good north east beers can be.”

The free Father's Day tasting (for over 18s only) is being held at mmm… and glug… 10-13 Grainger Arcade, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 5QF from 12 noon on Saturday, 17 June.
