“Beer is the most popular alcoholic drink on the planet, but very few people have any idea what it is made of. We all know that wine is made by fermenting pressed juice from grapes, and cider comes from pressing apples. But what about beer?

Beer is traditionally made from four natural ingredients: malted barley, hops, yeast and water, and each of these has an incredible story to tell.”

Pete will share secrets and stories behind our nation’s favourite drink during the evening. Prepare to be taken on a journey across countries with a cast of characters who reveal the magic of beer; and celebrate the joy of drinking it.
