A podcast that explores my love of the craft beer world, gaming, TV and many other subjects too. Join me as I talk about what I'm drinking, playing and watching and discussing it with other people along the way.
If you like tuning in then you can get more beer talk on my Instagram page @Points_Of_Brew
This week I'm joined by Simon and George from Padstow Brewing Company in sunny Cornwall. Between George getting a parcel delivered and reciting tales of where he went for a wee, we have a chat about the brewery and what's in store over the coming months. Simon talks about their upcoming lager helping fishermen affected by Covid-19 and George talks about building a cask washer from scratch.
This week I'm joined by Joe, brewer and owner from Firebrand Brewery down in Cornwall. We have a chat about how Covid has impacted them, their plans to move to their new site and the beers he hopes to make in the near future. Joe also shares some thoughts on the beers he likes and those he doesn't, black IPA's in particular!
