Beer, beer and more beer!
My favourite beer podcast, love the structure of the show and all the people involved. Keep up the good work!
Great New podcast!
Great listening, relaxed, not over the top ‘beer nerdery’. Easy listening even if you are from outside the city region, as the beer reviews and brewery discussion are interesting!
Refreshing approach to a beer podcast
This isn't about the latest Double IPAs, there's a nice mix of local and national beer talk from a likeable mix of people. Nicely broken up with interviews with breweries and pubs
