The Institute of Brewing and Distilling presents an evening of conversation with Charlie Bamforth and Cosmo Sutherland, hosted by Ian Jones.
Join us for an exciting discussion on the beer industry with three leading figures in brewing research, business and production. Covering topics from raw materials and production techniques to emerging trends and consumption habits, the evening promises to be an unmissable insight into current industry practices and thinking.
Charlie, Cosmo and Ian will kick-off their discussion at 7.30pm - please arrive by 7pm to secure a seat. Taking the form of an informal question and answer session, you will have the opportunity to pick their brains on (almost) anything you can think of. So, start thinking of questions! After the event there will be opportunity to meet the panellists and fellow attendees downstairs in the well-stocked Dean Swift bar.
