If there’s one thing we like as much as music at London in Stereo, it’s beer. Throw in some food, film, comedy and books and you’ve got yourself a pretty great week of events – which is exactly what masters of craft beer Brooklyn Brewery are doing with their second annual Mash tour.
This is the first time the tour will be hitting London, collaborating with London chefs, artists and a whole host of brewers, the Mash tour kicks off on July 26th, running until August 3rd across various London venues. For full info on what the week holds, check out the tour schedule and watch the preview below.
Taught by local brewers from CRATE, this class is focused on craft beer history, brewing, tasting profiles, and changes in craft beer culture.
