Join ChurchKey on Wednesday, November 16th, for a book signing and panel discussion hosted by Ronald Pattinson, world-renowned beer historian and travel writer. Pattinson will be presenting excerpts from four of his books (Armistice! Brewing in WW I, The Home Brewer’s Guide to Vintage Beer, Mild! and Strong!). Each book will also be available for purchase. To celebrate this occasion, we will also be featuring 20 oz. pours of all cask beers for $5!
Pattinson is widely considered the quintessential authority on historical beer. He has authored over 60 books about beer, including classics such as, “The Home Brewer’s Guide to Vintage Beer: Rediscovered Recipes for Classic Brews Dating from 1800 to 1965”, “Lager!”, “Decoction!”, and the “1909 Beer Style Guide”. He also continues to update his popular blog, “Shut Up About Barclay Perkins”.
Joining us as a moderator for the panel discussion will be Michael Stein, a noted local educator, brewer, author, and historian. Stein is President of Lost Lagers, DC’s premier beverage research firm; Senior Staff Writer at DCBeer.com; a James Beard Media Award Finalist; and a North American Guild of Beer Writers award winner.
The panel discussion begins in ChurchKey at 7 PM. There is no admission fee for this event. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
