Just a reminder that tomorrow is the Pub School: Meet the Brewer event. We are excited to hear about Williams Bros. Brewing. Please join us at the Market Gallery at 7pm (334 Duke St., Glasgow). The event is free.

April 21st - Meet the Brewer
April 28th - WEST Brewery Tour
April 30th - Market Gallery Pub - We will have 30 beers, 27 of which are homebrews. More details are here, including the names of participating homebrewers. Please invite your friends.

The event last Wednesday at the Pub School was titled "Selected Readings About Beer." Visitors brought in their own readings and I had prepared a few myself. My reading from Fermenting Revolution: How to Drink Beer and Save the World informed listeners on all the various saints in the church that have brewed beer, or became Patron Saints of Brewing. We didn't have enough time to get to my other selection, Beer and Autonomy, an essay about the restrictions on homebrewing in Canada. Robbie Pickering brought a reading about this history of lager from Martyn Cornell's book, Amber Black and Gold. Other readings included an essay about the Death of the British Pub which claimed that most British pubs would make better museums than social centers, selections from a fictional novel where it is required to drink a specific beer every 700 years in order to save the world, and an excerpt about an awful beer delivery experience from Sam Caligione's Brewing Up A Business: Adventures in Entrepreneurship From the Founder Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.
