Documentary Launch

We had a full house on Friday, European Researcher’s Night, for the launch of our brewing documentary. We are looking forward to sharing the film freely in the coming weeks. Our thanks to the Long Room Hub for hosting the event, and to all our guests for attending. Special thanks to Maurice Deasy from Canvas Brewing who came along to talk about traditional brewing from a contemporary perspective (and for allowing us all to taste his fantastic beers).
