If you鈥檙e a woman who has never warmed to having a beer on a night out then a new sampling event in Liverpool tomorrow could have a dramatic effect on your tastebuds.
The Old Blind School on Hardman Street is the venue for a night when women can taste local brews in conjunction with the perfect meal accompaniment.
It鈥檚 all part of the women and beer group Dea Latis鈥?aim to show how lagers, bitters and ales are for everyone and shouldn鈥檛 be seen as the preserve of men.
Beer sommelier Annabel Smith leads the event which will also show how women have been involved in brewing over the centuries.
This is followed by guests tasting six diferent beers matched with different food courses.
Annabel said: 鈥淔requently the reason that many women reject beer as a drink of choice is because they have not found the right style of beer to suit their palate.
鈥淭asting a range of beers with food is the perfect opportunity to explore the wide range of flavours in beer and help them make an informed choice when buying beer in the future.?/p>
Lisa Harrow of Dea Latis added: 鈥淲e know that women in Liverpool are already big supporters of our national drink and frankly it鈥檚 about time we did something in the city to celebrate the fact.?/p>
The tasting event is not exclusive to women but the organisers hope the female drinkers of the city will be out in force.
Local beers featured on the night include Neptune鈥檚 Abyss and Mad Hatter鈥檚 Liverpool Tart.
Tickets are £25 per head available online.
