I've never knew there was so much to learn about beer, until I visited Brewhouse & Kitchen Milton Keynes.

When it comes to my preferred choice of alcoholic beverage, I usually go for a glass of white wine, or perhaps a flavoured gin and tonic.

Beer is never something I usually drink, unless I'm abroad, because let's face it: the majority of the time, the best beers are made outside of the UK.

However, I was kindly invited to the press night at Brewhouse & Kitchen Milton Keynes to sample their cask and keg beers, their yummy selection of food as well as have a tour around the Brewhouse itself.

Living in Towcester, I am lucky to be situated in-between Milton Keynes and Northampton. Brewhouse & Kitchen Milton Keynes is ideally located within 12th Street, a vibrant hub of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. And I truly feel Brewhouse & Kitchen Milton Keynes is going to be a huge success amongst the recently re-branded 12th Street.

Here's what we got up to during the evening...

Brewhouse & Kitchen Milton Keynes is situated in the heart of 12th Street and the moment you walk inside, the building, which was once Lloyds, comes to life.

They have invested £1 million into the Brewhouse and it's opened up 50 new jobs for the local area.

From dark interior, specific decoration suited for Milton Keynes, comfy sofas, vintage chairs, to copper pipes decorating the entire venue that leads directly to the venues' own brewery.

The micro-brewery is the key attraction that makes this venue truly special. The beers are brewed 4 times a week on-site and the Brewhouse will be the first venue in Milton Keynes to offer beer workshops and masterclasses.

These include a Beer Masterclass, a Beer and Food Matching Masterclass and a whole day Brewery Experience where you can really sink your teeth into the art of brewing.

Once we arrived, we were greeted and shown to our table where we got to meet some other local bloggers, were introduced to the team of people responsible for the event, including the Marketing Manager, were offered a complimentary drink and were given a tour of the whole venue.

The venue spans massive 6,300 square feet across three floors, covering 250 diners with an additional 80 seats for outside alfresco dining for the summer months.

So there was plenty to explore.

Sampling the beers

After we finished the tour, we took our seats and we were ready to sample some beers!

As mentioned before, all of their beers are brewed in their very own micro-brewery, so I was expecting some big things.

We were introduced to the Head Brewer, Liam, who's passion for all things beer really shined through. And on top of that, he was a top guy who made the experience even more enjoyable.

He talked through each beer, where it came from, why it was a particular colour and why it tasted the way it does.

I found it so fascinating to learn about the origin of each beer and I was looking forward to trying them.

Each of the cask and keg beers are named after a specific monument or location in Milton Keynes, which I thought was a really nice touch. And they are brewed right in their own brewery!

Beers included 'Leaping Man', named after Greg Rutherford, British track and field athlete, which if you didn't know already, is actually from Milton Keynes. Where the beer is just as sweet as he is...

Other brews we tried included the English Style Ale, '12th Street', named for obvious reasons, which had a bitter, but firm taste. 'Colossus', a traditional IPA brew which really hit the spot for me with its citrusy taste. Webber's Vision,

My favourite out of the 6 beers we tried was the Boston Pale, which was an American Style Ale and it hit all the right textures, acidity and taste for me: malty, aromatic and hoppy.

I never thought I'd become a beer drinker, but I think Brewhouse & Kitchen has converted me.

And let's not forget the food...

You won't be disappointed by the variety of food Brewhouse & Kitchen have to offer...

We were given samples of their Starters and Small Plates, which wasn't enough to fill us up for dinner, but it has certainly made me want to go back for more!

From Sticky BBQ wings, Crispy Salt and Pepper Calamari with Garlic Mayo, both of which were up there as my top favourites. To their Rosemary & Cherry Tomato Focaccia with Olives, Olive Oil and Balsamic which I found myself picking at and going back for more throughout the night.

But the one dish I have been dreaming about since our visit, and the dish that I am 100% ordering when we visit next time is their gooey, but mouth-watering Mac and Cheese Melts with Chilli Jam, which literally did melt in my mouth.

These Starters and Small Dishes are perfect for if you're just passing by 12th Street and you just fancy something to nibble on to compliment your beer. You can grab any 3 dishes for £12.95, or 5 dishes for £21.00.

But their menu has much more variety than just their Starter and Small Plates menu. You can enjoy their lunch, evening, Sunday and dessert menu - all menus which I am keen to try on my next visit.

Overall, their food has made me want to go back for more and each dish was a twist on a classic, which I found surprising and enjoyable.

Everything about Brewhouse & Kitchen is up there as one of my new favourite venues. The atmosphere is buzzing, the location is suitable for daytime drinks, evening meals and weekend nights out, the food is great and there are beers suitable for everyone's taste.

We definitely want to make a return and we are really keen to do one of the beer masterclasses, as we thought they sounded like great value for money, plus a really great day out.

I think Brewhouse & Kitchen is going to be a huge success in 12th Street, especially with the theatre right next door, plus within walking distance of the shopping centre.

Now excuse me while I dream about those Mac and Cheese Melts again...
