One of the country’s leading beer experts will be making a special appearance at this year’s Celtic Beer Festival, held at St Austell Brewery.

Roger Protz is one of the best known names in the world of beer, and as well as writing more than 20 books on the subject he has edited 20 editions of the Good Beer Guide and contributed to publications including the Guardian, the Independent, the Publican’s Morning Advertiser and What’s Brewing.

Protz will be at St Austell Brewery’s Celtic Beer Festival on Saturday November 22, giving ale lovers a chance to discuss the finer points of their favourite brews with him, as well as signing copies of his latest book, Britain’s Beer Revolution.

St Austell’s Celtic Beer Festival will feature more than 130 different ales, stouts and lagers and will see up to 3,000 people entering the ancient cellars of the Victorian brewery building.

Roger Ryman, head brewer at St Austell Brewery, said: “It’s a great honour to have one of Britain’s best beer writers attending the festival, and I’m looking forward to welcoming Roger and introducing him to some of our new and one-off brews.”
