BBC Radio Berkshire is celebrating Reading’s brewing heritage, as part of Reading Year of Culture 2016.
We’ll be telling the fascinating story of how Reading beer was transformed from a disgusting swill hated by locals, to an ale loved all over the world.

Step back in time with a wonderful collection of memorabilia from Reading pubs. Meet members of one of Reading’s most renowned brewing families, the Simonds, and learn why their ancestors’ beers – like their 1880’s bitter and 1920’s Hop Leaf Pale Ale – became world-famous.

It’s on Tuesday 26th April at 3Bs at Reading Town Hall. Entry is free but you have to be 18+.
Event starts at 19:30. Doors open at 19:00.
