About Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout Tasting Event

Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout Tasting Event

For the first time in the brewery's 259-year history, Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout will be available on draft outside of England. McMenamins is one of the select places it's available in the U.S.

Join us to welcome Simon Poynton and to hoist a pint to toast this momentous occasion!

Do the Samuel Smith Beer Tour
In addition to the Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout, we will offer samples of 5 additional Samuel Smith selections - all of which we'll have on hand to purchase in bottles: Winter Welcome, Organic Lager, IPA, Apricot and Cider. Bottles of the Oatmeal Stout will be available as well.

Bonus: Those who purchase bottles of all 6 of these Samuel Smith bottles will get a special Samuel Smith pint glass (and you have a week - ‘til October 31 - to do so, we'll have tour cards to keep track, too). All those who get a pint glass will be entered into our grand prize drawing for a Samuel Smith Bar Kit, which includes a bar mat, drip tray and more.

Simon Poynton has been with the Old Brewery in Tadcaster for over 18 years now. His official title as Export Manager hardly does justice to the many, many (stylish) hats that he wears for this sixth generation, family-owned brewery. As a small, independent brewery, it behooves oneself to be a Jack of Many Trades. When not scrambling madly about to ensure that our Samuel Smith's beer arrives fresh and in a timely manner, he enjoys gardening and strolling about the idyllic North Yorkshire countryside with his wife and the family dog.
