Beer Sommeliers?

A restaurant in Yorkshire has started the search for its first beer sommelier to help diners match beer with food.

Sam's Chop House in Leeds has 21 bottled Yorkshire beers and six cask ales on offer alongside traditional dishes such as Sam's brown onion soup or home made corned beef hash.

Co-owner Steve Pilling said:

"Food and beer matching is a relatively new concept, but I think if you offer it as an alternative it will work. What we'll do eventually is have a tasting menu so it would say, have our fish and chips with Sam's Bitter, for example."
