Years ago when you bought a pint of beer you had 3 choices – ready salted, salt & vinegar, and if you were really lucky cheese & onion crisps.
These days the choice of snack to accompany your IPA or Real Ale has grown considerably and last week I was sent a package from a brand new company, Cleaver & Keg, based right here in Norwich. They have just launched a range of delicious ‘nibbles’ inspired by US Beef Jerky and Spanish Chorizo that positively delight the taste buds.
Cleaver & Keg was founded by Dan Searle (Meat Eater.Beer Drinker) and his business partner Sean, and while the snacks might not be so popular with your vegetarian friends, for aficionados of salt-cured, air-dried meat snacks this is a marriage made in heaven.
Currently available only in selected establishments, but look out for them in a pub/store near you soon. For more info visit www.cleaverandkeg.co.uk
