Spitalfields restaurant Hungry Donkey is stepping up its drinks offering this new year, with a special beer-pairing menu. Specialist Greek and Mediterranean brews will debut at the restaurant from January, and there will also be regular beer-tasting events at Hungry Donkey throughout 2016.
The restaurant’s drinks list will feature craft beers from Greece (and surrounding countries) to accompany the kitchen’s repertoire of modern Greek dishes. These will include Nissos pilsner (an award-winning, small-batch beer from the Cycladic island of Tinos), aromatic Delphi beer, (traditionally fermented in the bottle) and Septem Sunday, which is an unpasteurised, double-fermented beer with notes of Greek orange blossom.
The first beer-tasting event will take place on Tuesday 26 January and will be hosted by Tom Harrow – aka Wine Chap – who, though best known for his passion for wine, also enjoys a quality pint now and again. He will talk guests through each beer, all of which will be paired with a Greek dish.
