The UK is arguably the birthplace of modern beer. The Brits invented stouts, brown ales, IPAs, porters and many other beloved styles – then they perfected where and how to drink ‘em.
You’re invited to join Dave Engbers of Founders Brewing and Onward Travel as we explore beer in Britain together – from historic pubs to the brightest new brewers of today, London Bridge to the rolling hills of the country’s most beloved national park.
The beer scene in England has traditionally been dominated by fermented cask beer, colloquially referred to as “real ale.” Drinking a real ale in the pub is such an integral part of British life that a now famous advocacy group, CAMRA, was founded in the early 70’s and they’ve been fighting ever since to preserve real ales and the pubs that serve them.
Today, beer drinkers are once again behind the quality production championed by CAMRA, and there’s an exciting local craft beer revolution winning the war for English tastes as brewers young and old push the limits of their work into uncharted, creative realms while still honoring the fabled traditions of days past.
We’ve planned a seven-night beer soaked adventure; a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience one of the world’s richest beer traditions and explore England with a brew in hand and Founders experts along for the ride. Let’s go!
