Beer Names - Hobgoblin, Doombar, Jail, and many, many others. These real ales are today the lifeblood of the modern pub. Many a smile is raised by the wonderful names and yet do we have any idea where these come from? Book the talk and you'll soon be an expert!

About Anthony Poulton-Smith

A freelance journalist and author, with 74 books, many articles, is a ghostwriter, innumerable crosswords and puzzles published, whilst also compiling and marketing quizzes. These books have mostly been on the subject of the origins of place-names and as part of the publicity Anthony has been interviewed several times on the radio and has been privileged to be the guest speaker at several events. Fascinated by the development of language and etymology, I am based in Tamworth Staffordshire and chairman of Tamworth Literary Festival.

Happy to travel and available at short notice.
