Event description
Author Pete Brown discusses and takes questions on his journey through the nature of beer.

About this event

Standing in a hop garden, bewitched by the aromas, I decided to write a book in celebration of the hop. Twenty seconds later, I thought, "Why is it always hops that get the glory?" And this book was there, a fully formed idea.

Miracle Brew is a sequel to Man Walks into a Pub, going deep on the nature and science, rather than the social history, of beer. It's a counterpart to The Apple Orchard, in analysing the natural history of one of my favouriote drinks, and it's a continuation of the world travels I began with Three Sheets to the Wind.

In this event, I'll be cantering through an overview of beer's four main ingredients, asking why only 22% of drinkers can name them all, and chatting about what makes beer so miraculous.

This time, I'm working with Bath Road Beers to put together the perfect beer flight to accompany this session. Each beer below showcases one particular ingredient that's discussed in the book. This tasting flight of pale ales and IPAs allows you to experience the same discoveries I did when I was researching it, seeing how changes in each one affect the overall beer.

Red Willow – Chevalier IPA - in the book, I was there when the first test batch of Chevallier malt was delivered. Since then it's been used to stunning effect, most notably by Cheshire Brewhouse in this classic old school IPA.

Arbor – Mosaic - a hymn to the hop, featuring one of the most celebrated hop varieties of the last decade.

De La Senne – Taras Boulba - the way Yvan de Baets cares for his yeast is a book in itself. This beer allows that yeast its ultimate expression.

Double Barrelled – Back to Life/Double Barrelled – Back to Reality - one recipe, two beers, with only the water treatment changed. The character of brewing water is the hardest ingredient to demonstrate, but tasting these beers side-by-side should show what a difference it makes.
