Asheville Beer Week

Zebulon Artisan Ales
8 Merchants Alley
Weaverville, NC 28787

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm The Rise and Fall of English Porter 1750-1960 - Lecture/Tasting

The world’s foremost beer historian, Ron Pattinson, and Zebulon join forces to bring you another legendary lecture and tasting. This year’s lecture/tasting follows the meteoric rise and sad death of porter in England. While Ron describes the brewing of porter and how it evolved through world wars and temperance movements you will be served samples of seven (possibly more) historical re-creations of porters from those times.

Many of these porters have been aging in oak barrels for 8 months with Brettanomyces and were brewed using custom made malts that haven’t existed for over a century. This is a once in a lifetime chance to drink these beers and Ron’s lectures are always not to be missed. There will be a Q and A after the lecture and Ron will be signing and selling books.

Tickets: $35
