No More Heros

Manchester, So Much To Answer For

We held one of our favourite events yet at the shop on Thursday night - the latest instalment in our No More Heroes series with beer writer Matthew Curtis of Total Ales. This time we were joined by Marble head brewer James Kemp, who made the journey down from Manchester to take part in a tasting session of six of his favourite beers and a live interview for a forthcoming podcast.

The beers were terrific, the craic was strong and the topics of discussion wide and varied, with Matt and the audience grilling James on everything from murky beers ("no") to sexist beer marketing ("no") and Dobber ("I thought you weren't going to mention Dobber").

You'll be able to hear the full podcast soon at Total Ales. In the meantime, here's a photographic taster of the night. Details of the next event coming soon.
