Beer, Cheese and Music Tasting with Pete Brown


Your brain is lying to you. You have more than five senses. And you can hear the difference between IPA and stout. This audio-visual extravaganza has evolved over the last decade into a mixture of fandom, storytelling, genuine neuro-scientific research, and more than three jokes. Taste different beers & cheese during the evening and take your senses on a voyage of discovery.....

With Acclaimed Beer Writer Pete Brown & Cheese supplied by Cheryl Cade

£16 Ticketed includes Beer Samples and Cheese Samples
