Head to The AO Big Kitchen stage on Friday to take part in Sharp's Brewery Beer Bingo! You'll get to sample 3 x 50ml samples whilst your host, Ed Hughes, tests your beer knowledge and history... oh and not to mention there will be prizes along the way!
Ed Hughes is a leading accredited Beer Sommelier and is responsible for the Mariners collaboration with Paul Ainsworth and Sharp’s Brewery. Ed has regularly featured on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen and in 2018 co-authored Sharp’s first cook book Brimming with more than 60 recipes inspired by the Cornish coast. Just Add Beer’ profiles some of the UK’s top chefs – from award-winning street food chefs to those with Michelin stars to their names.
Ed's passion for beer began while managing bars in Nottingham including the infamous Brass Monkey at the age of 19. A trip to Belgium around this time inspired and educated Ed, not just in the quality and variations of flavour of beer but the pride the Belgians had in beer and beer service, a similar respect that French have with wine.
