Beer and food pairing at The Showroom

Beer and food pairing at The Showroom

When you first think of pairing beer and food, many people might not be able to imagine any further than a curry with a pint of lager. However, in recent years with the upsurgence of craft brewing, the wealth and breadth of flavours now possible in our humble beer is absolutely beyond compare, and we at Abbeydale believe that beer can do an incredible job at complementing and contrasting with a massive array of foodie flavours. And so we’ve paired up with the super-talented and imaginative culinary team at the Showroom to put together a very special menu:

Puffed beer crackers with ale-e-oli dip

Duck ballotine, goats cheese, beetroot, almond and cherries

Paired with Red Parallax, 4.8%, a Belgian style cherry ale brewed in collaboration with local music legends 65 Days of Static.

Sea trout, mango salsa, coriander crisp

Paired with Bear Hunter, 4.1%, a Mount Hood and Azacca hopped pale ale.

Venison ragu, parmesan mash, romesco cauliflower, vegetable crisps

Paired with Full English Breakfast Stout, 4.9%, a dark beer brewed with coffee, maple syrup and smoked malt.

Grilled mackerel, tomato, feta crumb, basil

Paired with Hop Smash, 7.4%, a grapefruit IPA brewed in collaboration with Kuhnhenn Brewing Co from Michigan.

Rabbit loin, pancetta, spiced carrot, rabbit jus

Virgin Tripel Saison, 8.5%, a spiced Belgian saison with cardamom, star anise and liquorice root. Brewed in collaboration with De Noord-Hollandse Bierbrouwerij.

Spiced plums, brimstone sabyon, iced yoghurt, malt tuille

Double Brimstone, 8.1%, a strong American Brown Ale and part of our 20th anniversary celebration series.

Finally we’ll be finishing off the meal with Last Rites truffles, made with our sumptuous 11% barley wine.

The event is taking place on Saturday 26th November and there are still a few tickets available! Please call the Showroom directly on 0114 275 7727 or visit the box office to book.

Baby Black Mass

Baby Black Mass

Winter is rapidly approaching, and with it comes more of a thirst for settling down for a cold evening with a pint (or several) of a roasty, toasty dark beer. So we thought it was about time for Black Mass to take its turn in having a bit of a makeover for our 20th birthday celebratory series!

Given that Black Mass is quite the heavyweight already at a devilish 6.66%, we’ve ramped up some of the flavour components but brought down the ABV to create a robust yet still eminently quaffable beer. All hail BABY BLACK MASS – a 4.8% espresso stout, brewed in just the same way as our original sultry dark ale but with hefty additions of freshly ground coffee and lactose for a full-bodied, extravagantly bitter-sweet tipple.

Following on his spectacular range of our anniversary year artwork, Carl Flint ( has once again reimagined the original design to give this special beer it’s own identity whilst remaining in keeping with the history behind it.

On sale from November 21st so keep your eyes peeled for this popping up on bars round Sheffield and beyond soon!

Mine’s a pint!
