On the 18th of May Artof2 Designs were asked to join Brewer Mark & Brewer Scotty of the Rocks Brewing Co, at their Rocks based pub, the iconic Harts Pub. The boys were having their first “Beergustation”. Yup, you read that correctly a “Beergustation”. A feast of food served over several courses, all perfectly matched to a devine boutique beer.
As you can imagine, Anton was in seventh heaven......photography, food & beer all packaged into one evening!
The boys made us immediately welcome, chasing the winter chills away with our first glass of specially selected beer and introducing us to the whole team including Head Chef Paul Wightwick.
Paul had pulled together a fantastic feast of 8 courses which included my favourite, the Oyster Beignets and Anton’s favourite, beer sorbet.
The conversation flowed easily between the 25 guests, which included Beer connoisseurs Chris & Chris from Singapore, Bushtucker chef, Gourmet Greg, a few expert brewers and little me with my camera in hand.
As each course arrived, Mark would give us a brief rundown on the history of the beer, discuss some tasting points and why that beer had been matched with that particular dish.
We enjoyed ourselves so much, that we have been back to Hart’s a few times since and I have come to particularly enjoy their Cider & a portion of the Rock poppers all to myself!
Head Chef Paul has just put together their new winter menu, but if you want to spoil yourself with a real treat, get yourself booked in for the next Beergustation on 22 June. Bookings close on Friday, so you had better be quick!
