A once in a lifetime event to sample 8 historical British beers, hosted by renowned British beer writer and historian Ron Pattinson. Ron will provide insight on the significance of each beer style and open dialogue about why these beers changed over-time. Was it new available ingredients? Was it the effects of wars? Was it taxation? Was it changes in beer drinkers preferences?
