The Thinking Drinkers – Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham – are professional alcohol experts.
And they’ve accumulated so much knowledge on their chosen subject, they are now touring the country sharing that intelligence with others.
Having met in their 20s while working on a pub magazine, Ben and Tom left for America where they co-wrote the award-winning Good Beer Guide West Coast USA.
The acclaimed alco-demics pour the entire history of human civilisation into a shot glass and take the audience on an intoxicating time-travelling journey through drink-drenched history.
The pair are regular columnists for the Daily Telegraph and a range of other publications, and appear on radio and television espousing their “Drink Less, Drink Better” message.
They’ve had six critically acclaimed sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, have launched Hobo Beer and Hobo Cyder and have written countless books between them on the subject, including World’s Best Beers: 1000 Unmissable Brews from Portland to Prague, and World’s Best Cocktails.
They bring their informative session to the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury on Saturday, January 27.
