As Europe prepares to go head to head with the United States in the 39th Ryder Cup, Esquire is teaming up with the iconic Draft house in Tower Bridge and Beers of Europe to offer readers the chance to drink some of the best beers from both sides of the Atlantic in the company of renowned beer expert Ben McFarland.
Golf and beer. It's a combination that's hard to beat, especially when it involves the greatest golf week of the year plus the chance to drink some of the world's finest beers from both Europe and the USA.
On Tuesday 25 September, just days before the golfers of America and USA do battle at Medinah Country Club, we'll be finding out who reigns supreme when it comes to the important matter of brewing beer.
Triple-crowned 'British Beer Writer of the Year' Ben McFarland sets the scene: "America, once a barren beer land bereft of choice, now boasts the most diverse beer scene in the world while European countries are home to old school classics and a thriving New World craft brewing scene."
So will the Europeans show these whippersnappers across the pond a thing or two? Or will the Americans open a can of Whoop-Ass on their old-school opponents?
Either way, it's going to be fun finding out, so join us on Tuesday 25 September from 6.30 to 8.30pm, for a beer battle that will make the War of Independence seem like a playground scuffle.
You'll also be able to try your hand at our putting competition on the fiendishly uneven surface of the Draft House tasting rooms.
Entry is by invitation only – to apply for tickets, email your name to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 20 September.*
And remember: don’t drink and drive. Or even putt. It plays havoc with your concentration.
*If demand for tickets exceeds the number of available places, names will be drawn by ballot. We will let you know if you’ve secured your invitation by EOP Friday 21st September.
