Caught by the River

Shakespeare's Local at Rough Trade

24th September 2012

Pete Brown is Caught by the River’s kind of beer writer. Whether it’s writing a social history of laughing water or hosting evenings where brews are matched to music (Thornbridge Jaipur with the first Roses LP? Yeah, that works…), Pete understands beer and pub culture like no other British writer at the moment. His next book, Shakespeare’s Local, tells the 600 year tale of one pub in particular – The George Inn just behind London Bridge. It covers six centuries of British history as seen from the bar stool in the corner of that famous public bar and it’s fantastic.

Caught by the River is proud to present a night of pub talk with Pete at Rough Trade East on November 14th. Pete will be giving an illustrated talk about from the book. It’s free and starts around 7pm. See you there.
