The show is produced and presented by member of The British Guild of Beer Writers, Emma Inch. In November 2017 – in recognition for her work on Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio and on this website – Emma was awarded the Maltsmiths Award for ‘Best Beer Communicator – Online’ by the Guild.
“The shows have a real energy, and people at their heart.”
(Pete Brown – Chair of Judges – speaking at the British Guild of Beer Writers Awards, 2017)
The show has a magazine-style format and features interviews with national and international brewers, articles on brewing techniques and homebrewing, food and beer matching, and beer-related news and views. Jane Peyton – award-winning beer sommelier, writer and educator – is a regular monthly guest. James Torr – an experimental homebrewer and coordinator of Homebrew Brighton – also frequently appears on the show.
During the past two years, Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio featured interviews with around 60 national and international breweries including Cloudwater, Beavertown, Bedlam, Yeastie Boys, Northern Monk, Fierce and Verdant plus beer writers including Pete Brown and Roger Protz .
