Born in the Borders is hoping to turn people’s perceptions of food and drink combinations around with new beer and food nights in the restaurant at the visitor centre.
Dark Horse 4.5% ABV
Scottish Borders Brewery
A classic Scottish dark ale with overtones of chocolate and coffee that make it a natural partner for wintery puddings such as chocolate tart and banoffee pie. Also goes well with stews.
Merlin’s Ale 4.2% ABV
Merlin’s Ale is a lightly-hopped golden beer with a biscuit malt character. Match it with light, nutty cheeses or lighter foods such as chicken and fish.
Tyneside Brown Ale 4.7% ABV
Hadrian and Border Brewery
This brown ale is a full bodied, amber ale with very traditional bittering and aroma hops. Roast pork, smoked sausage or an aged Gouda are the perfect companions.
Solway Mist 5.5%
Naturally cloudy wheat beer. Despite its alcoholic strength, it mixes well with lighter seafood dishes such as steamed mussels.
All beers available in bottles from Born in the Borders.
