GOATOBER London launch with Wild Beer Co.
Goatober, the month-long goat meat celebration held every year in October, is an international food festival bringing together dairies, farmers, NGOs and individuals who are passionate about ending food waste in the goat dairy system.
Wild Beer Co. is the exclusive drinks partner for Goatober and will be pairing beers at London events including Brigade Bar + Kitchen, Carousel and Native. Throughout October, Wild Beer will be pairing beers with goat dishes with a specific focus on Modus Operandi; an oak matured wild beer, aged for many months in Bourbon and Red Wine barrels tasting of sour cherries, toffee and dark chocolate.
On 1 October, Gizzi Erksine; executive head chef of The Holborn Dining Room Calum Franklin and Karan Gokani, director of Sri Lankan restaurant Hoppers will cook at Brigade Bar + Kitchen with head chef Pete Denhart to create a special goat menu. This special one night only event is £65 per person and includes a charity donation to Beyond Food Foundation.
“Goat is not only absolutely delicious, it’s probably one of the most sustainable of all meats. I believe we should be trying to eat less, better quality meat and using the whole animal.” Gizzi Erskine

The diversity and range of flavours in our menu from Gizzi, Calum and Karan reflects Wild Beer’s attitude to creating great beer.”
