hosted by London Chaiparty
London Chaiparty has joined hands with beer experts at The Joker, Islington to pair some traditional and not so traditional Indian food with beers. Craft beers and microbreweries have sprung up all over London and we thought it was high time someone paired actual Indian food with kick-ass craft beers.
We would take you on a beer tasting flight covering food from different parts of India, cooked in different styles and those that vary a lot in terms of taste and flavour. You never know, it may be the night you discover your favourite Indian food and beer.
Welcome Canapé: Kolkata Jhal Muri to munch on while you settle down for an evening of food & beer
