Cheese Tasting with Good Beer!
Cheese Sharing & Tasting Evening Venue: The Wellington Pub, 37 Bennetts Hill., Central Birmingham, B2 5SN Free Event. The famous Wellington pub hosts evenings, usually on a wednesday each month, where everyone is required to bring some cheese. The cheese is pooled among all their customers for a cheese tasting evening, where you get to sample a lot of cheeses. The venue will provide some bread, biscuits and pickles for accompaniment. The Wellington pub always allows you to bring your own food to eat on the premises, and provides cutlery and plates for you to use To lubricate the taste buds, there are usually around 16 traditional hand pull ales available which can be sampled in half-size glasses, and a few traditional ciders. We have done this event a couple of times before, and it was well enjoyed by all! To make this work well for our group, we need to get there early to secure a few adjacent tables, so please arrive for 7pm if you can, to optimize your chances of finding a seat, though we will look out for people until 7.30pm. Shhh.... but it is also worth bringing one cheese for the pub supply and one cheese to eat among ourselves, so that we keep some good stuff for ourselves. Also possibly some biscuits, though the pub will usually also provide some extra snacks as mentioned above.

What we're about

There is no membership fee for joining this group.

If you are a young person who enjoys meeting people in the region's finest traditional pubs and bars serving good handpulled beers and ciders or serving fine wines or even ports, then this is the group for you.

We aim to meet once or twice per month initially, varying the venue to try out different pubs and bars in Birmingham, Walsall, Harborne, Sutton Coldfield, Moseley, Dudley, Lichfield, Wolverhampton, Bromsgrove, and all the other accessible towns we haven't mentioned. What we are not about is promoting pressure groups or arranging drinking nights at someone's cherished local which would be unfair to the rest of our membership.

Some of our meetups will also involve food, especially where interesting or unusual cuisine, some will involve festivals, some will involve walking between several pubs, some will involve traditional pub games, some will involve trips to wine-sellers or breweries, some will be run in partnership with other groups. All will involve socializing.

As the group grows, we are also aiming to run "booze cruise" trips further afield, and hold camping/hostel weekends in suitable locations. It is intended that event organization will be rotated amongst members, and that public transport arrangements will be available within reason for all locations selected.
