All Bar One Beer Challenge

All Bar One and Duval, the prestigious Belgian beer producer, recently invited several journalists to take on an esteemed panel of beer experts in a Beer Challenge - with the journalists coming up trumps overall.

The beer experts comprised Hedwig Neven, Duvel's Master Brewer; Marc Stroobandt, Master Beer Sommelier; Pete Brown, author of 'Man Walks into a Pub' and Fiona Smith, Managing Director of the F&B Partnership.

The two teams battled it out to prove who knew their hops from their barley over a four round challenge, including a university challenge style question round, a blind tasting, beer and food matching and a mystery pint round.

All Bar One, famous for its range and quality of beers, hosted the Beer Challenge in conjunction with Duvel to celebrate the launch of its new beer, available from 29th September. 

The new menu sees Duvel Green arriving in the UK for the first time on draught at All Bar One.
