Never has a beer style been shrouded with so much mystery, intrigue and myth-like status than the style India Pale Ale.

There are many legends, half-baked truths and tall tales associated with this beer style, all of which have been fully scrutinised by award-winning beer writer Pete Brown.

Pete is the foremost writer on this beer style, having studied the subject for his book “Hops & Glory”. This book documents Pete’s bold (and sometimes foolhardy) adventure; taking a full cask of IPA on the original pre-Suez canal trade route, from Burton-On-Trent to the shores of India.

Join us for a wonderful evening with the “Beer drinker’s Bill Bryson” (Times Literary Supplement) as we discover the true history of the beer style that plays such a huge role in today’s modern beer scene.

Your ticket will include:

Talk and Q&A session with Pete Brown

1 x Anytime IPA, Table IPA (Ltd Edition) & London IPA

1 x Perfectly paired Cheese Board supplied by “The Cheeseboard” on Royal Hill, Greenwich

After the talk, there will be a chance to purchase signed copies of Pete’s books from the Brewery Shop.
