As part of the inaugural Paddington Pub Festival, Australian craft brewery Matilda Bay, along with the Paddington Arms Hotel, will host a beer and food matching lunch designed by Matilda Bay’s new best mate – Sydney-based Irish chef Colin Fassnidge of the Paddington Arms Hotel, Four In Hand and 4Fourteen.

Matilda Bay recently partnered with Fassnidge on a “beer and food matching mission”, matching ten of his recipes to different Matilda Bay brews – four of which will be served at the Paddington Pub Fest beer and food matching lunchon Friday, 15 February.

Hosted by Matilda Bay brewer, Chloe Lovatt – alongside Fassnidge – the four-course menu will include top-notch matches such as lamb shoulder with Fat Yak Pale Ale and apple tarte tatin topped with a Dirty Granny apple cider sorbet.

Matilda Bay is famous for re-interpreting and experimenting with traditional beer styles, and the brews are the perfect partners for Colin’s dishes, both sweet and savoury.
