Caught By The River Present: A Night Of Pub Talk: Pete Brown
Pete Brown is Caught by the River's kind of beer writer. Whether it's writing a social history of laughing water or hosting evenings where brews are matched to music, Pete understands beer and pub culture like no other British writer at the moment.
His next book, Shakespeare's Local, tells the 600 year tale of one pub in particular - The George Inn just behind London Bridge. It covers six centuries of British history as seen from the bar stool in the corner of that famous public bar and it's fantastic.
Pete Brown was the first poet to read at Morden Tower on Bloomsday 1964, in Newcastle upon Tyne. He performed Kurt Schwitters’ poetry at Wholly Communion at the Royal Albert Hall in 1965. He met Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce at the Marquee Club in 1966, and wrote lyrics to Wrapping Paper.
