Welcome

The Brewers Lectures is a series of live events from the Brewers Journal. The half day lectures give a platform to six speakers to inspire change, generate discussion and share brewing expertise.

The lectures are hosted five times a year cross the UK and Ireland.

As we all come to these events from differing backgrounds and differing means, we have made all tickets available for free, we just ask you to make a small donation if you are able so that we can continue to run these events.

Full details of each lecture will be released in the run up to the day. Scroll down for upcoming events.

In the four short years since moving to the UK from New Zealand, Stu McKinlay has become a familiar and popular part of the UK brewing industry.

Roger Ryman | St Austell

Roger Ryman wrote his name into UK brewing history when he created St Austell ‘Tribute’ nearly 20 years ago. Much has changed since he first produced that ale in 1999 but with the subsequent, popular creation of numbers like ‘Proper Job’, ‘Bad Habit’, ‘Gem’ and ‘Black Square’, beers that have picked up awards across the globe, Ryman, brewing director at St Austell, has helped guarantee ongoing success for the historic Cornish brewery. His expertise in brewing is difficult to rival.
