How to store beer?

Important, keep your beers in a vertical position to avoid oxidation and avoid sediments of yeast in your glass of beer. Also, keep them away from direct light.


The perfect temperature for your beer is 10 degrees. That said it’s pretty unlikely that you have  a beer cellar. So you will have to store them in your fridge at a lower temperature. Remember to take them out 15 minutes before the tasting to taste them in the best conditions.

How long does beer last?

Our advice is to drink them during the tasting once opened.  Please don’t give in to temptation and drink them before! There are craft beers that last well if maintained in perfect storing conditions. But if you want to get the most of the hops of an IPA it’s sooner rather later.

Type of glass

The right glass for the right beer tasting is a long debated topic. Get some of our tips here. 

Please wet your glass before pouring if possible.  This allows a good head to form and enhances the aromas of the beer.

Pairing tips from our beer sommelier

If after the tasting you still have some beer left we suggest some snacks for your beers, or maybe you liked them so much and want to buy some more for your next dinner party?

Here you have some ideas:

  • As de piques – Rice noodle with your favourite prawns and teriyaki sauce
  • Samuel Smith Imperial Stour – a tasty veggie treat: Portobello and Stilton cheese Melts see here the recipe
  • Ayinger – Roasted Pork Ribs
  • Clausthaler Original – Iberian ham
  • IPA Komodín – Chicken Fajita (recipe here)
  • Weihenstephan  – a refreshing salad with red apple and raisins

You will receive:

In your tasting pack you will find 4 different chocolates:

  • Black chocolate with caramel and Himalayan Pink Salt
  • Black chocolate with orange confit
  • Milk chocolate with almonds and caramel
  • Black chocolate 70%

How to store them

Treat chocolates as you would treat your red wines, keep them in a dry and cool place. They don’t like temperature changes, nor too cold or too hot environments.

Let us give you a couple of rules here…

Don’t put them in the fridge!

Don’t eat them before the tasting, we’ll find out!


Serving temperature

We don’t expect you to measure the temperature of your chocolates, just make sure they are at room temperature.


You might want to try your chocolates with wine or even in a chili salad!

Cocoa is a super food, really good for both your energy level and your soul, there are so many foods you can combine chocolate with, do you have a favourite?
