How We Got to Bud Light



Drew Stephenson

Co-Owner + Head Brewer, Pleasure House Brewing Co.

Virginia Beach, Virginia


Hate Bud Light?

Love it?

Either way, you can be sure that this is NOT your father's Budweiser... and it's REALLY not your grandfather's. Drew, a former history teacher turned master brewer and local brewery owner, will hit the highlights that led to the celebration of "drinkability" as a positive attribute for beer. He’ll also chat up the development of lagers - from changes in malt, fermentation, economic pressures tied to WWI & WWII, and of Big Beer.

Later Event: November 4
