Fancy trying a Michelin-starred chef’s food along with a few beers?

Beer Central

A Michelin-starred chef will be rustling up food at Birmingham’s Beer Central Festival this summer.

Brad Carter, chef-patron at Carters of Moseley, will will be cooking a specially created menu at the event, which takes place at 119 in Digbeth on Friday July 5 and Saturday July 6.

Birmingham-born Brad, who has appeared on television’s Saturday Kitchen, will be grilling and smoking a variety of meat, seafood and other seasonal ingredients using two specially created grills.

The menu has been carefully designed to pair perfectly with beers from two of his favourite breweries, The Kernel and Braybrooke.

The festival is organised by We Are Beer, the team behind the Bristol, London and Edinburgh craft beer festivals.

As well as getting the chance to experience Brad’s food, festival-goers will also enjoy world-class music line-up and selection of over 100 beers.

The food line-up also includes award-winning burger purveyors Original Patty Men and Baked in Brick.
