Three members of the British Build of Beer Writers are heading for Williamsburg, Virginia, in October, to speak at an Ales through the Ages conference.

Ales Through the AgesGuild chair Pete Brown will deliver the keynote address to open the conference on October 19, and Martyn Cornell and Ron Pattinson are both speaking the following day.

The conference promises “a journey through the history of beer with some of the world’s top beer scholars.

“We will explore ancient ales and indigenous beers of the past, examine the origins of brewing, and discover the ingredients brewers have used through time.”
