In-person talk: Not All Beer and Skittles

Wednesday 16 February | 1-2pm | Free (donations welcomed)



A light hearted ramble through the history of pubs, beer and brewing, from the days of the Assyrians, to the present day, with a particular focus in the modern day on West Berkshire's wide range of local and micro- breweries, local pubs, skittle alleys and more. Sadly, samples of local beer will not be on offer!



Speaker Sue Ellis moved to West Berkshire in the 1980's and has utilised her history and archaeology knowledge as a member of several local historical societies and committees for a number of years.
