    I misread your piece and was delighted to read it as “the happiness of the ale was more than a match for the heat of the curry ” nice bit of serendipity there.

    That’s the best bit of mis-reading I’ve heard of in ages! Maybe a little lost in translation?

  3. I have had loads of feedback since the event, and everybody really enjoyed the *challenge* of deciding which food went best with each beer. Fabulous beers and the West Cork Hotel did us proud with the food as well. Thank you to all involved.

      The next time I think we’ll have to have score sheets for the matches – it looks like there were a lot of people who would have enjoyed the opportunity to use them. We had a great time, as you can see, so many thanks for asking us!
