Cultural historian and award-winning beer writer Pete Brown (Pie Fidelity, Shakespeare’s Local, Man Walks into a Pub & more), turns his attention to a phenomenon that has shaped modern British culture without anyone really noticing, launching the careers of global stars like Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey and Steve Davies.
