Register for your tickets (by donation) here.

PechaKucha are proud to be hosting the next London PechaKucha Night Vol. 17 “Something’s Brewing” . This one is in collaboration with a business that not only employs a great bunch of people, but which also produces something that Londoners hold close to their hearts (quite literally if it is a chilly London morning as you speed your way to the Tube station to get amongst that warm tube air) – delicious coffee!

Allpress was established in New Zealand in 1986 and has taken over the world, with their coffee now stocked in over 1,400 cafes globally.

Allpress are kindly opening the doors of their Dalston E8​ Allpress Roastery and Café after-hours in order to host Vol. 17 on Thursday 9 November 2017.

Just like PechaKucha, Allpress believe that bringing people together over a drink whether that be coffee or beer allows for human connections to happen – and after that anything is possible!

Come join in the fun on Thursday 9 November (1830 - 2100) to hear a great line up of speakers give their version of a PechaKucha (short 6.5 minutes long talks) on the theme “Something’s Brewing”.

Not only will you be inspired and educated throughout the evening, we will make sure you don’t leave thirsty or hungry. There will be beers (thanks to our drink sponsor Corona), wine and even some sausages!

Tickets for this event are by donation and that donation will be given to the PechaKucha Global fund, which supports the team in Tokyo to ensure the wonderful world of PechaKucha can continue.

@ VOL 17 ON NOV 09, 2017

this PechaKucha given by Rebecca Crotty-Jones at the Allpress Roastery in Dalston, on 9 November, Rebecca provided the audience with an insightful look in to the world of the large brewer.

With the growth in micro-breweries and craft brews, this was a timely and eye opening look in to the hard work that is put in to getting thousands of beers made and distributed to the tables of bar leaners of happy punters.

Artificially Intelligent - No! - Yes for Real!

BY HEW LEITH
@ VOL 17 ON NOV 09, 2017

Hew Leith gave his PechaKucha at Vol. 17 of the London Series and introduced the audience to IntelligentX, the world's first beer brewed by artificial intelligence which he created with Dr Rob McInerney.

When The Guardian hear about A.I Beer they agreed it may be the first use of AI they feel okay about - "AI might be shaking up life as we know it, but like any good party guest, it’s about bringing the beers. That’s according to the work of London-based company IntelligentX, which is using artificial intelligence to brew the perfect pint"

Right after Hew's talk I know most of the audience were already Googling to find out more - order your own AI Beer here - http://intelligentx.ai/
