Fowl Mouths @ The King & Co
We were back at The King & Co in Clapham Common in March for another beer and food matching event. This time we worked alongside their latest popup residency “Fowl Mouths”, creating a wonderful menu of delicious Japanese comfort food paired with speciality beer.
We had some winning combinations including Andwells Pilsner Hop paired with Vegetable gyoza where the use of aromatic Sorachi Ace hops from Japan really brought out the umami flavours of the shallow fried dumplings. Island Records Session IPA worked wonderfully alongside the chilli wings where the robust hop bitterness countered the chilli while the beer’s maltiness was emphasised by the teriyaki sauce. The match of the evening came from Weihenstephaner wheat beer from Germany which was paired with salmon with ginger and sake sauce. A close second was the Brew By Numbers‘ rich coffee porter whose flavours melded beautifully together with the succulent fore rib steamed bun.
“We really enjoyed the tasting on Tuesday – the Pilsner was particular great – and your team were really knowledgeable as always. Hope to see you at another event soon.”
