Book & a Beer ‘Shakespeare’s Local’

shakespearesFirstly I must apologise it’s been some time since I updated this blog.  I have been writing, but mainly for the trade press, between that, running a pub, a busy festive period and many more excuses I simply haven’t got around to writing about the various beer news & antics at The Thatchers.

However we have a very exciting event coming up, and one I really want to let you know about, so without further ado, let me introduce Pete Brown, Beer writer of the Year 2012! As he is joining us for our Cider vs Wine & Food Matching evening on the 2nd of February we thought we’d take advantage and get him to tell you all about his latest book while he’s in the area.

Shakespeare’s Local‘, Pete’s 4th book, is a sociable look at the past 600 years from the rather illuminating viewpoint of one Southwark pub, The George, one of the few remaining coaching inns. Previously BBC Radio 4’s book of the week read by Tony Robinson.

Pete will be joining us to introduce his book and read a few excerpts himself.  We will be providing some bar snacks & a pint for you to enjoy during the chat all for the modest sum of £5.  So if you want to hear about the street urchins, hop merchants, beggars, robbers, prostitutes, watermen, authors and even hat makers who have made up the colourful band of locals at this Borough pub over the years join us at 4pm on Sunday 3rd February.

We look forward to seeing many of our colourful band of locals here!
