Yorkshire brewery T&R Theakston is set to bring together leading figures from the beer and hospitality trades through a discussion panel, entitled “Cask Meets Craft” to be held on Friday, 1 October at 6pm.

The event, is celebration of Cask Ale Week​, which runs from 23 September to 3 October. 

Compered by The Morning Advertiser​ editor, Ed Bedington, the interactive panel will explore what the camps of cask ale and modern craft beer can learn from one another. 

Beer fans

The event, which is free to attend online, is aimed at those working within the on- and off-trade, as well as passionate cask and modern craft beer fans. 

Sitting on the panel alongside Simon Theakston, joint managing director of Theakston Brewery, will be Cat Fergusson, editor of The OnTrade Preview​; Greg Hobbs, co-founder and head brewer at Five Points Brewing, and Chris Jowsey, CEO of Admiral Taverns. 

Simon Theakston said: “We’ve always said that we consider ourselves to be the original craft brewer, so what better way to celebrate that heritage than by gathering some of the beer and hospitality industries’ most influential figures to discuss how, in many respects, cask ale and modern craft beer are very compatible with one another and to see what each can learn from the other. 

Fun and interesting 

“We’d encourage anyone who is passionate about beer and brewing to celebrate Cask Ale Week with us by signing up and submitting their questions ahead of what we’re sure will be a very fruitful, fun and interesting discussion.” 

Panellists are invited to share anecdotes from their experience working within the industry, as well as their predictions for how these categories will continue to evolve in the future.  

Attendees can submit their questions for the panel until Friday 24th​ September by tweeting@Theakston1827​, or messaging Theakston on Facebook​ or Instagram​.
