Our friends at Good Chemistry are running their innovative 'Drink While You Think' lectures, that bring the world of academia and beer together.
This is a free un-ticketed event being held at The Eldon House – the only charge is at the bar! Seats are first come, first served.
Here's Kelly with some more information (there's a bit more detail at their website for those that are interested):
Following the success of last year’s Think While You Drink, we at Good Chemistry are excited to bring our bit of science back to Bristol Beer Week, this time in the lovely surroundings of Clifton’s Eldon House. This year we’ve not only lined up an evening of talks from leading academics delving into the world of beer and brewing, but we’ve also got two of the most respected brewers in the country.
Tuesday 17 October
Join Dr Neil Sutherland from UWE and his colleague Dr Scott Taylor from the University of Birmingham whose current research, that Bob and Kelly have been involved in, asks what’s it really like to work in a craft brewery? They’ll be followed by Dr Sam Goodman, of Bournemouth University (but an Easton resident) whose work explores how beer and drinking culture influence ideas of Britishness.
Wednesday 18 October
We’re really excited to bring you two of this country’s most respected brewers – Jonny Mills and Stuart Howe. Jonny’s career started at Bristol Beer Factory and he now runs Mills Brewing in Gloucestershire, brewing with wild yeast and bacteria. Stuart Howe is probably best known for inventing Doombar (the best selling cask beer in the country), but he currently heads the brewing team at Harbour Brewing in Cornwall.
Join us at the Eldon House off Jacobs Wells Road where we will have a range of our beers available plus something special from Harbour and Mills Brewing.
The pub will be open from noon each day, so come down early for a pint and a bite to eat before the first talks kick off at 6:30pm. After our speakers finish at 8:30pm we’ll be staying around for a pint or two more to carry on the chat.
