Local author Pete Brown was named Beer Writer of the Year for the third time in December 2016 and his new book, Miracle Brew, about hops, barley, water and yeast and the magic they create together, is published the day before the festival starts. To celebrate the launch, Pete invites Henry Jeffries, author of Empire of Booze, to discuss how Britain invented all the best drinks – even the French ones. After an interval, Pete then chats about Miracle Brew and does a tutored tasting of damn fine beers.Buy tickets
