Our first international guest on the pod! A fascinating chat with Aussie homebrewer turned pro Ivan Juggins covering the realities of pro brewing, the craft beer scene in Australia and an infamous Doughnut beer amongst many other topics!
Lots of beer, mostly Chris’s beermail but a few commercials as well and the usual general mayhem!
Matt Curtis is an author, blogger, and beer lover who is the author of Modern British Beer and Pellicle Magazine. He joins us for a jaunt through the world of Modern British Beer. We talk about where it came from, and where its going. Its also probably the quietist you’ll ever hear the 4 of us. Great talking to Matt, he’s welcome back when his next book is written, that is for sure.
In episode 37, due to dry january and covid Owen and Chris discuss their plans for the year, and have a few beers. A non-scripted meander through many topics and beers we’re gonna brew and Owen declares his need for a brewing calendar and almost gets kicked off the podcast…
This episode has been on the cards for a while, its all the ways to cock up a brewday, how to screw it before you start, when you package and all the steps in between.
Like buses, when you havent had one for a while, 2 episodes turn up in 3 minutes…
Owen and Chris review another couple of beers and shoot the breeze about life in general. 2 beers this time cos it was a Saturday and we could!
Hope you enjoy the new podcast, we’ll be back with a full lengther when we can get the 4 of us together. Term start time is a bit of a nightmare tbh, so hopefully it should be soon!
Owen went on holiday for this one, so we needed someone with as sexy a voice, and as good a knowledge of beer, so we subbed in Chris Harrison-Hawkes AKA Harrybrew for a pod. This one should give you an insight into the world of commercial and homebrew recipe development, and how you can hone a recipe in to give you what you want.
We delve into the world of Kveik as we understand it, Tricky has strong views on Lagers, and Marvin Gaye gets it on…

Episode 25 is live!
So this isn’t a topic a lot of people cover, but after Tricky giving us a glimpse into his routine, we thought it might be good to cover this one in detail to dispel some myths and reasons why you shouldn’t use certain products without understanding the potential pitfalls.
After some issues away from the podcast, a super busy couple of weeks at work and a whole slew of problems with the editing process, finally this one is done.
Its a Q&A episode which should provide some laughs and some fun for you guys.
Apologies right now for the audio quality, its not fantastic, but its the best I can do under the ciurcumstances.
