Brewhouse & Kitchen has added to its nationwide portfolio of brewpubs with the launch of a new site in Bournemouth.
Boasting its own microbrewery, the site’s dedicated brewer will be responsible for producing a selection of the brewpub’s own beers to be available alongside a list of craft beers sourced from across the world. A selection of dishes created using beer as a key ingredient forms part of a brand-new food menu.
Brewhouse & Kitchen Bournemouth’s own microbrewery will produce a range of five beers to be available throughout the year and an additional eight, seasonally-changing variations. The brewer’s choice tap, a brew totally unique to Bournemouth, will also be on offer.
In addition to the beers brewed on site, the drinks list boasts an additional 50 craft beers and ciders from breweries across the world. A playful selection of ‘beertails’ will also feature on the menu, offering a beer-based twist on well-known mixes.
Aiming to make craft beer as accessible as possible to everyone, Brewhouse & Kitchen Bournemouth offers two different academy experiences: a two hour ‘Beer Masterclass’ carried out by the resident beer expert and a day-long ‘Brewery Experience Day’, run by the brewer.
The Beer Masterclass covers eight different types of beer, exploring the flavour profiles and history of each, while the more intensive Brewery Experience Day provides an opportunity for customers to better understand how beer is brewed.
Every Thursday, Brewhouse & Kitchen Bournemouth will also host a ‘Meet the Brewer’ evening and a ‘Beer Challenge’ on the last Thursday of each month, during which blindfolded participants are invited to try three different beers and guess their style. If all three are sussed correctly, the winner will receive a free Brewhouse & Kitchen beer.
Designed by executive chef, Tom Bew, the new food menu has also launch across the group and will showcase beer-based cookery.
Guests can opt for longstanding favourites such as IPA battered fish and chips as well as new inspired offerings including tortilla chips and beer dips. Bew’s incorporation of beer across the menu is particularly evident in the group’s selection of burgers, each served in a sourdough beer bun and topped with homemade IPA cured pickle, a cask ale relish and a portion of fries tossed in a garlic and hop salt.
Commenting on the launch of Brewhouse & Kitchen Bournemouth, CEO Kris Gumbrell saidL: “This new addition has been a long-term project in the making, but we’re very excited about opening in Bournemouth town centre. Our Brewpubs are all unique and offer a very special experience. There is a huge interest in craft and artisan brewing from the guest”.
