As the long, hot summer rolls on, Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio slaps on its sun cream, pops on its hat, and continues the quest for the very best stories in contemporary beer and brewing.
The show returned to Radio Reverb at 3pm on Sunday 22 July, and covered barrel-aging, progressive hops, and beer marketing, and also took a peek at a brand new brew house!
Back in July 2016, it was announced that Cornish brewery, St Austell, had purchased fellow West Country brewers, Bath Ales. After a period of substantial investment, Bath Ales’ brand new, state-of-the-art, brewing facility was unveiled just a few weeks ago.
In this month’s show, legendary brewing director, Roger Ryman, takes Emma on a tour of the brew house. He explains the process of designing a brewery from scratch, and his hopes for the future of Bath Ales.
Also on this month’s show:
- Jonny Garrett – he of Cave Direct and Craft Beer Channel fame – comes at us with both barrels when he chats to Emma at Imbibe Live about the history of barrel-aging, and Cave Direct’s own plans for a blendery at Beer Merchants Tap;
- Fermentation’s very own resident beer sommelier, Jane Peyton, makes our mouths water when she suggests some food to pair with those barrel-aged beers;
- Beer writers, Pete Brown and Jess Mason, tell us about their philosophy of how to sell beer to everyone, and Jess’s TEPA (The Equality in Pubs Accreditation) launched at Imbibe Live;
- We revisit last month’s Beer Day Britain celebrations and learn about the potential of progressive British hops to make great tasting beer;
- And Emma spills the beans on some of the many fantastic events taking place during Brighton & Hove Beer Week.
We taste three great beers on air:
- Burning Sky – Typically English Day (BritHop)
- Bath Ales – Lansdown West Coast IPA
- Harviestoun – Ola Dubh
You can tune into the show at 3pm on the fourth Sunday of every month via Radio Reverb on 97.2FM or DAB+ (in Brighton & Hove) or via radioreverb.com (worldwide). Alternatively, you can catch up via iTunes Spotify or Podomatic.
