A Flavour of the Amazing British Beer Scene
Award-winning beer writer, broadcaster and judge, Pete Brown, presents British beer. He joins the team at Nottinghamʼs celebrated Castle Rock Brewery to offer a glorious mix of history, accounts of the emerging craft beer scene, technical insights into brewing and amusing anecdotes.
Pete and the brewers will take you through a range of beer-styles, looking at the impact of ingredients on colour, flavour, aroma, body, mouthfeel and ʽfinishʼ. They will highlight the difference between cask-conditioned ales (with their iconic hand pumps) and keg, bottled and canned beers.
This tutored tasting, led by one of worldʼs foremost experts and commentators, will open your mind and expose your taste buds to the complexities (as well as the joys!) of the countryʼs beers.
