Join Jeremy Pope on this fascinating talk and tour to look back at the history of the Eldridge Pope Brewery and visit some of the original buildings that have been retained as part of the Brewery Square development. For over 100 years, the brewery was at the centre of the town’s economy and the Popes were one of its most prominent families. Jeremy will help us to understand the history of the site and its location next to the Railway at Dorchester South Station.
Find out how the new Brewery Square development has built on and retained its brewing heritage with new brewing businesses in modern times.
The talk and tour starts with coffee and ends with beer tasting at Copper Street Brewery.
