Murrays, Doughheads & The Hop Factory: A tasty team

A very Newcastle collaboration is set to take place on Saturday 13 June. The Hop Factory on Darby St has teamed up with local favourites, Murrays Brewery and Doughheads Doughnuts, to host a “Dark Beers & Doughnuts” degustation.

Beer and doughnuts may seem like an odd combination at first, but organisers have declared that attendees should prepare themselves for deliciousness!

The tasting afternoon will feature the release of four brand new Doughheads flavours, perfectly matched to four of Murrays Dark Beers, promising to set any beer (or doughnut!) connoisseur’s heart on fire.

Newcastle Live will be heading to the event to treat our tastebuds, and we’re lucky enough to get the menu to study/drool over ahead of time…
