Our top picks for food & beer matching this National Picnic Week

Food | 14 Jun 2016

Whilst we have to confess, we’re just as likely to witness sheets of driving rain from the brewery windows, the Harviestoun team do love the chance to scramble together a nice al fresco picnic when the sun does make the effort!

This week is the UK’s National Picnic Week, (11th to 19th June) and is a celebration of the joys of assembling those tartan blankets, wicker baskets, plastic glasses, napkins and heading to the great outdoors to enjoy some tasty food and drink outside with family and friends.

Whether you’re heading for an outing in your favourite city park, or heading out of town, don’t forget to pack a few tasty beers for an enjoyable few hours in the sun.  

Scotch Eggs

We had to lead with this one, didn’t we really? Invented by London’s esteemed department store Fortnum & Manson in 1738, Scotch eggs have been a Great British picnic staple for centuries. Whether you make them at home, pick them up from the deli or from your nearest farmers’ market, these are the perfect portable picnic food. Tasty golden crumb, savoury egg and sausage…these are the definition of ‘moreish’. Our amber ale, Broken Dial, with its balanced floral nose and creamy, bitter finish makes for a tasty partner.

Salmon Quiche

Packing a crumbly-crusted quiche or flan is a great, shareable way to bring salmon to the picnic line-up. Our sessionable Golden Ale, Bitter & Twisted is a good match for this type of dish, with the floral, fruity hop notes complementing the fish perfectly.

Manchego Cheese

9th Legion, our newest beer is a Red Ale with well-rounded biscuity malt notes and a dry finish. It pairs really well with the classic Spanish cheese, Manchego. This aged ewe’s milk cheese has a fruity, nutty flavour, and is a delight with our Red Ale, particularly if the beer is a little off chill point.

Charcuterie

Nothing like channeling those European aspirations than pairing flavoursome, salty, smoky charcuterie with a lively lager, IPA or pale ale. Whether you prefer Italian salumi and prosciutto, Spanish chorizo and jamóns, or a French saucisson sec…these well-seasoned meats are a treat with either Schiehallion or our IPA.

So, bung the baguette in the basket, don’t forget the bottle opener, and make some time to enjoy that perfect picnic.

We’re over the moon in sharing the news with you that Broken Dial, our refreshing amber ale recently brought home a Bronze Medal in the Ordinary or Special Bitter category at the 2016 World Beer Cup.

Broken Dial was launched in 2014, so as a new-ish member of the Harviestoun family, we’re very proud of our young un’! Since then it’s been winning fans with its balance between biscuity malts, florals and bitter hops.

The medal was one of only a handful presented to UK breweries at the prestigious awards ceremony in Philadelphia last month. The World Beer Cup, known as the ‘Beer Olympics’ takes place every two years. Hosting some of the world’s finest brewers – large and small – the event is an opportunity to showcase both the traditional and the new. With the explosion of new breweries from around the world, we were in excellent company, and we were over the moon to bring home a medal for Scotland!

Earlier this year, Broken Dial also won SIBA Supreme Champion in the ‘Premium Bitter & Pale Ale’ kegged beer category earlier this year, as well as one of top three keg beers across the board, winning bronze. In 2015, Broken Dial picked up a gong for ‘Best Bottled’ beer by SIBA.
