Tastings at Punctuation 2.

Beer tasting.

Are you into beer? Did you enjoy the beer tasting we held at Punctuation or the beer tasting held at ConFusion? We are taking a leaf from ConFusion’s book and running a more guided beer tasting, with the tasting being led by the fine folks at Unity Brewing Co.

You can order the box of Punctuation 2 beers for £30, and you get Thinking with Portals (a collab with Elusive), Prinzen, College Street Pale, Conflux, Preserva #2, and Backyard Banquet. This is a real range of styles so there should be something for everyone, and shipping is free (but note that if you add things onto your order, you will need to pay shipping of £6). Unity are an up-and-coming brewery local to John, so he’s particularly excited to be doing this.

Cheese tasting.

The cheese tasting is being masterminded by Ang (who ran the tasting at Punctuation 1) and will be held on the Saturday night of the convention. In the same vein as with the beer tasting we’re plumping for a slightly more structured event with a platter of recommended cheeses from Liverpool Cheese Company.

A wooden cheese platter on which rest five cheeses: Berkswell Ewe, Rosary Goat, Mrs Bell’s Blue, Ribblesdale Smoked Goat, and Yorkshire Manchego. A pack of fig, honey, and extra virgin olive oil crackers rounds out the scene.

If you’d like to join the cheese tasting, you can order the tasting array we’ll be exploring, featuring Berkswell Ewe, Rosary Goat, Mrs Bell’s Blue, Ribblesdale Smoked Goat, and Yorkshire Manchego, which costs £32 plus £3 delivery. When you order, let them know that it’s for the tasting on 19 June, and ask them to deliver no earlier than 14 June to make sure you have nice fresh cheeses on the night.

All the cheeses are vegetarian, but if you’re vegan or you’d just rather pick different cheeses, please feel free to do so and come along anyway.

Gin tasting.

The gin tasting was suggested by Anna and is the third tasting we’re having at Punctuation 2. It’s the first tasting of the convention chronologically, occurring on the Friday night after the opening ceremony, and we’re going to be using Ginsanity to get our gin on.

The gin tasting will be a tasting box called “Flowers of Scotland” – you can either buy a box which just contains the four gins (£19.99), or you can buy a set which comes with various bonuses including a guide on how to taste gin (£34.99). Delivery in either case is £4.99.

We’re really looking forward to the different tastings at the convention and we hope you are too!
