Craft beer tasting

Saturday 22nd February
7:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.

Join the CU Real Ale Society as we team up with Clare MCR to have a beer tasting on the theme of modern craft beer.

The craft brewing/microbrewing movement started in the 1970s in the US (alongside the real ale movement in the UK) as a reaction to the beer brewed by major industrial breweries. The movement has been characterised both by a search for roots and authenticity by reviving traditional and somewhat forgotten beer styles, and great experimentation and a wish to push the boundaries of what beer can be. During this tasting we will be trying some examples of craft beers, and should have something to offer both novice and seasoned beer drinkers.

The tasting is open to all university members, but please note that a limited number of tickets are reserved for CURAS members and Clare College students.
