BBQ, Gin and Meat Festival - Sat 29 June

The Great British BBQ, Gin and Meat Festival (Birmingham) 2019 is back for the 3rd Year!

Fast forward to Saturday 29 June, as we'll be celebrating our favourite spirit with a smoking BBQ feast! Celebrating the nation's favourite activity, experimental food and drink festival organisers Taste & Liquor are putting a day of drinking and feasting together as they'll be combining two epic festivals as one.

Combining their Seasonal BBQ and Meat Carnival with The Gin Festival raise your juniper glass to the heavens as they present The Great British BBQ, Gin and Meat Festival.

In true honesty, there's nothing better than a glorious old knees up with food and drink– last year summer in the UK was a sizzler, and with forecasts indicating another this year, The Great British BBQ, Gin and Meat Festival will be hosting a formidable street-food line-up with a formidable independent bar.

Celebrating British independents and local BBQ hero’s head over to Quantum in Digbeth to find Birmingham’s top BBQ and smoking masters serving up their exclusive specialities alongside the UK's first Cocktail Bar and Meadery! The Award Winning 100 Trades Cocktail Bar The Vanguard.

Based in the historical JQ, customers and locals can enjoy 1000 Trades on the ground floor, and the newly added cocktail bar upstairs on level three. The bar was set up by local bartender and entrepreneur Samuel Boulton and is a shabby chic environment, set within a beautiful old Victorian workshop. Expect rustic/industrial charm with opulent service. The Vanguard’s Gin Menu features an array of Gin spirits and creative cocktails to suit all tastes, the bar also specialises in a little forgotten beverage, Mead. For those who don’t know, Mead is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water, sometimes with various fruits, spices, grains, or hops.

Alongside The Vanguard Bar we have some of the best British BBQ chefs serving the tastiest dishes for all you carnivorous fans! Presenting established, new- emerging independents that’ll be serving new mouth-watering, finger-licking, soul satisfying dishes so good you will be going back for more – and more and more!

Big Names To Beeline For:
Salty Dog - Loosen your belt and get ready. Get your Summertime Hot Dog fix, as Salty Dog hits the line-up! Nothing is more British than a juicy sausage in a roll and though we’re all saying our hello to summer, we at Taste and Liquor are celebrating this British classic as we present Birmingham’s top dog street food trader to come up with what we consider to be some of the best.

Known for only using locally sourced hot dogs from the black county - all pork with a guarded recipe of spices and a great snappy texture - to make the perfect handmade sausages, you’ll still get a barbecue fix because theirs come in a bun with various mouth-watering toppings with Salty Dogs famous homemade sauce. This is comfort - BBQ - food at its very finest; a plump and juicy gourmet hot dog topped with an overflowing mountain of toppings is just what the festival ordered.

Chapura Mexican Street Food - If you love Tacos then you will fall in love with our next trader Chapura Mexican Street Food as he brings the real taste of Mexican to the line-up. Stand out dishes named "little meats", carnitas are tender shredded bits of BBQ pork - eaten as tacos - will be taking centre stage. They're unceremoniously served heaped on a plate, with an array of red and green salsas, coriander, onions and lime; and fresh warm corn tortillas, of course.

In our mind this is genuinely the very best Carnitas Recipe we’ve ever had the honour of devouring. Slow-cooked to crispy and tender perfection, this Mexican BBQ Pork dish will quickly become a Taste and Liquor favourite. Gluten-free, sugar-free, and happy mouth guaranteed. The menu also covers vegetarian and chicken tacos; just don’t forget the fresh cilantro and onion! On top of that this bustling and colourful stall offers more huge plates of mouth-watering toppings be sure to plan your feast and subsequent coma earlier in the day. You have been warned.

Jamrock - When it comes to barbecue, Jamaica has only one trick up its sleeve. But, oh, what a ... Jamaica: Where Smoke and Fire Meet the Caribbean. As Summer slowly approaches, imagine yourself in sunny Jamaica, where spicy jerk is the star of the barbecue scene. Once you’ve tasted this fiery smoke-roasted chicken Jerk, sweet with allspice, fragrant with island thyme, their Vanilla Fried Dumplings are simply out of this world. No matter how many of them you eat, you will never have enough of them on the day.

Little Urban BBQ - This Smoked food horse conversion makes his return for the second time this season. His dishes are recognised for some of the best-smoked meats in the city. Little Urban BBQ is not just a BBQ, it is a Smoked BBQ: smoking their meat makes their BBQ one of the best around. Imagine a blend of St. Louis, KC, Memphis, and a hint of Texas style flavors will excite your taste buds with the most delicious “comfort- food” west of the Mississippi – or Digbeth even! They even offer meat substitutes like jackfruit and it’s hard to tell the difference between pulled jackfruit and pulled pork.

Naughty Little Things - Through trial and error, beers drank and briskets squandered, Naughty Little Things have created a remarkable BBQ menu that has been bewitching BBQ aficionados since that fateful first bite. Cooked up in small batches and served in a BBQ Tapas Style Box for that fresh quality and celebration of taste, their fantastic BBQ and sides will always have you coming back for more. Their homemade rubs make every bite taste even better than the last and their number one goal is clear, to win the hearts, minds, and stomachs of every last one of their customers!

Super Dry Guy's – Belgian frites: the most beloved snack in all of Brussels and they are coming to Digbeth and joining our line-up for the first time. I feel like I should warn you: once you taste Belgian frites, it ruins all other fries for you. Nothing can compare to the twice-fried, perfectly crispy golden goodness. Not only that, when you order from Super Dry Guys you are going to get a plate of deliciousness. You're going to get frites topped with all kinds of glorious toppings. We're talking parmesan, spicy peppers, pieces of crispy slow-and-low meat scraps and fried herbs. Arrive hungry!

The Dough Bar - It’s hard to avoid the raw cookie revolution, with Instagram going wild for bowls filled with rich chocolate milk and ice cream, then piled high with donuts, raw cookies and more. The Dough Bar offers some of the most photogenic raw cookie puddings around, this is the real deal: raw cookie dough topped with ice cream, oreo brownie, pretzels, peanut butter biscuits and chocolate sauce can’t do too much harm, right?! Choose your flavour of raw cookie dough (don’t worry – no eggs in this mixture) then pick some toppings, and indulge.
